Designed to make it as easy as possible for the home DIYer and tradesman alike, the Newturf Alley Oop basketball key kits come ready to lay. Requiring minimal cutting, the kits are available in either red or blue with the white line already in place on the sides of the key area.
You will need to insert the “free throw line” and the outer line around the ‘D’, but even this has been made easy.

Alley Oop Installation Video
The Alley Oop kit comes with 2 white lines down one side and one line down the other. The extra outer line needs to be cut off. This is used to mark the ‘free throw’ line and the outer edge of the ‘d’. The lines were you need to cut are marked on the back of the turf.
Once this is laid out and joined in place the outer green grass can be installed. Firstly cut two x 3m lengths these are installed at the ‘d’ end of the court. You will be left with a run of grass 6m long. This is then cut in half running up the middle of the grass. Simply find the approximate middle and cut along a rib. **DO NOT CUT ACROSS THE GRASS HERE.
Now you should be ready to lay all the green surrounds. Simply put in place, you will need to trim in around the half circle, this requires a little patience. You should now have all four pieces of green grass in position and ready to join to the key with the qualtape.
When you have finished joining all the seems you can trim off any remaining grass.
Finally you are ready to sand the court. Make sure that the grass and sand are dry when doing this. Also it is very important to spread the sand evenly, use a drop spreader or drill holes in a bucket and fill with sand. Broom the sand in with a stiff yard broom or hire a mechanical groomer.
When finished you will most likely have a very sandy surface, this is perfect and the sand will keep filling the grass with use making a hard firm base.
I’m writing this e-mail to say Helen and I are very happy with the choice of the Tru Lawn Cool Plus turf which Nick Feather recommended and installed in the area we wanted done in the back courtyard on the 16th November. Nicks workmanship was A1 and was very accommodating to our requests and demands. A true professional and we will not hesitate to recommend his services to any prospective customer. Thank you Newturf for introducing Nick – A JOB WELL DONE!
I would like to thank you for the wonderful work done by Nick in the construction of my new synthetic lawn. I am extremely pleased with the result, I now have the best front lawn in Murrumbeena Thank you from a very satisfied customer.
Thank you Newturf, no more mud through the house. No more mowing and with the Cool Turf we’ll have a lawn for life. Chris and I are amazed at how much more the kids are playing outside. Thanks for a great job – no mess no fuss. The family love the Newturf lawn (including the dog!).

We had Newturf install our synthetic lawn 9 years ago, we have just moved house and have been so happy with the last lawn we want you to install your Newturf in our new home. Very Happy.

David, I would like to thank you and the Newturf team for the professionalism shown during our recent synthetic grass installation. The job meant you were working in the middle of the school area, we had no issues with staff, students or parents during the entire process. You have a great team.
