South Devon Turf's Top Tips for Your Lawn In Hot Weather

If you are laying the turf yourself in hot weather, make sure to take care of you! Drink lots of water to stay hydrated, wear a hat and sunscreen.

Can you lay turf in hot weather?

Yes, you can lay turf all year round! Your lawn will establish more quickly in hot weather as long as the turf is properly watered.

What to do before your turf arrives

  • Ensure you have completed all of the ground preparation.
  • Ensure all of the soil is firm because soft ground will leach water more quickly.
  • Buy a hose-pipe and sprinkler.
  • Ask if your turf can be delivered on the day you wish to lay it or the day before.

What to do when your turf arrives

  • If you can't lay the turf immediately, stack it in a cool shaded place.
  • Always unstack turf from pallets because heat can build up at the centre of the pallet.
  • Do NOT water or cover the turf.
  • Lay the turf as quickly as possible.

Laying your new lawn

Try to brake up your pallets into smaller sections leaving enough space for ventilation, as turf needs plenty of air to breathe. You should not water turf while it is still rolled up, this will increase the turf heating process and is not good for turf.

What’s the best time to water your lawn?

Your new lawn will need Watering. Try to be fully equipped with a hose and a sprinkler before buying your turf. Getting the water into the soil is crucial, as the roots need to establish. You will also want to get the water away from the hot surface as it could evaporate rapidly. Water droplets evaporate quickly when the sun directly hits them, and heat is high. To avoid this evaporation, the best time to water your garden is early in the morning and late afternoon/evening (avoiding the sun in its peak times). To check your lawn has absorbed the water lift 1 corner of a turf to ensure the turf is moist all the way through and the soil underneath is also moist.
