    Default Grass died under trampoline in a rental

    We just moved out of our rental in qld. Our grass died under our trampoline.
    The house sold so we had to move out.
    It hasn't rain here in awhile and I'm worried if we (the tenants) have to turf the yard??

    I had the same issue under my outdoor setting at my old rental, all I had to do was lay grass seeds before vacating to show I had attempted to fix the problem.

    Maybe speak to your real estate though, but I doubt they will expect you to lay turf.

    I had the same prob with the tramp and swing set sandpit. I just went to the turf farm and got some rolls of matching lawn and dug out the dead lawn and put the new rolls down. It only takes a week or so to start to blend in with the existing lawn and as far as I know that's all the agent can expect if the lawn is damaged. I tried grass seed but it didnt even germinate.Follow the instructions of laying the lawn and make sure it is fresh as it can die easily if left in rolls for a few days or layed in very hot weather. I think I was paying about 7.50- a roll and 4 rolls was plenty to do a large trampoline area for me.

    The same thing happened with us too and like singlemumma, we just laid some grass seeds before we vacated and watered heaps. Bit of a pain with the birds eating the seeds, but in the end there was a good little patch of grass covering the area.

    I have the opposite problem under our trampoline. It's the only place that doesn't dry out thanks to the mat and side. I sprinkle the yard (thankfully no water reatrictions here) at least once a week when it's not raining.
