Preparation and laying


Make sure you've prepared the ground well before your Turf delivery arrives. 

1. Remove any turf, significant greenery, roots and weeds. You can strip old turf with a spade or hire a turf stripper from Your local hire centre.
 
2. Ensure your ground is free of large rocks and debris but don't be to be concerned over a few little stones. 
 
3. Once the ground is clear, the garden should be turned over, either with a fork or preferably a rotovator. If you are dressing with our screened topsoil you may not need to turn your existing soil. 
 
4. Your soil level should be to the top of any patio slabs to allow for a little settling and to ensure you can mow the edges easily. 
 
5. Rake over the soil with a wide landscaper’s rake. Once the area looks nice and level, shuffle across the soil to compact it with your feet. Rake the area again, scrubbing at any lumps and then spreading excess soil into the hollows. 
 
6. Perfectionists can use a straight edge to screed the soil for a perfect level (We are perfectionists).
 
 
 
 

Now time to lay your new lawn…

Lay your 1st row of turf, carefully butting together the edges. Make sure this row is perfectly straight. It can be laid along a straight side of the garden or just lay a straight row through the middle of the area. 
 
Place boards or planks on top of your 1st row so you can now work off these boards/planks to lay the rest of the lawn. 
 
Start the next row and every second row with half a turf so that your rows will be staggered. 
 
Continue to lay your turf, carefully butting the edges together so there are no gaps. Continue to walk on the planks and move them over as you lay each row. 
 
Use a sharp knife, or sharp spade to cut the turf on the edge of your lawn.
