Laying Turf

  • Lay your first row along a straight edge, slowly unrolling turf to avoid damaging. Butt each piece up closely to the last and ensure good contact with the soil by tamping down firmly with the back of the rake.

  • Lay the next row, making sure the pieces of turf are pushed right up to the first row. Stagger this and subsequent rows in a brickwork pattern until the area has been covered. 

  • Lay turf so it runs beyond the area of your new lawn and trim edges with a half-moon cutting tool or stanley knife. If possible set up a sprinkler to water and soak thoroughly.
