How to Lay Turf
Here is our quick turf
It really is easy!
Preparing the ground,
you will need to remove
any old turf (if present)
do this by digging it off or
hire a turf cutter to
remove the old turf.
Once you have removed the turf you will need to dig over the
soil to break it up & aerate it.
Dig the topsoil over to a depth of about 4 to 6 inches.
Now you need to rake out any lumps &
bumps to create a nice level surface. Add
fresh topsoil or soil improver if the soil is
poor or if levels need raising.
When you have finished raking & levelling
you should firm up the area by either
rolling lightly or walking all over the area
and then give it a final rake. (you should
just leave a slight indentation in the topsoil
when you walk on it (say 1cm depth).
Now your ready to order your turf, measure the area you wish
to turf in meters and calculate the area in square meters (m2)
or use a turf calculator
http://www.turfgrowers.co.uk/turf-calculator) to work out
how many rolls of turf you need.
Laying the Turf
Lay your turf within 24h hours of delivery.
Start at the far end of the area you wish to
cover and roll out the turf rolls end to end
(work in straight lines), give the area you are
working on a quick rake to level it out
before you lay each roll. Remember to
stagger the joints like brick work. “If you need to make cuts use an
old knife or a good spade or turf
edger to cut the rolls to shape”
Now give your new lawn a good soaking
and water it daily for the first 10 days.
Try to keep off the lawn for the first
couple of weeks, give it its first light mow
when it gets to about 3 to 4 inches long.
Enjoy your new lawn!
