  • How  to  Lay  Turf   Here  is  our  quick  turf   laying  guide…     It  really  is  easy!   www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • Step  One   Preparing  the  ground,   you  will  need  to  remove   any  old  turf  (if  present)   do  this  by  digging  it  off  or   hire  a  turf  cuCer  to   remove  the  old  turf.       www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • Step  Two   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.       www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • Step  Three   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  indentaLon  in  the  topsoil   when  you  walk  on  it  (say  1cm  depth).   www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • Step  Four   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   hCp://www.turfgrowers.co.uk/turf-­‐calculator)  to  work  out   how  many  rolls  of  turf  you  need.   www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • 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”   www.turfgrowers.co.uk    
  • 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!   www.turfgrowers.co.uk
