How to lay turf like the professionals

Following the turf laying guide will enable you to lay turf in almost any area of the UK and achieve excellent results. However, if you wish to ensure your new lawn looks as if it were laid by professionals, there are a couple of additional measures you can take, which we detail for you below. If you want to make sure that your new lawn is the best in the neighbourhood and is as lush and green in 12 months’ time as it was on the day it was installed, these additional measures will help you to accomplish your goals with ease. Whilst you could simply hire a team of professionals to do the work for you, doing it yourself is more satisfying as far as many gardeners are concerned and gives you control over the whole process.

The secrets to laying turf like a pro

Use the tips below to make sure that your new lawn gets the best possible start in life and does you credit in the years to come.

  • Invest in the best quality turf available – If you use turf grown with low quality grasses or that has not been given enough time to mature, you are likely to be disappointed with the results you are able to achieve. Rollaturf grows high quality turf in Richmond and delivers to locations across the United Kingdom: place your order with us to avoid disappointment.
  • Lay it immediately – All the orders that we receive are harvested and delivered in a 24-hour period, to ensure the turf is fresh when it arrives. Take advantage of this fact by laying it at the earliest possible opportunity, while it is still fresh, and you will ensure your new lawn gets off to a great start. If you want to know when to lay turf, the answer is: as soon as it arrives!
  • Use good quality fertiliser – This additional preparatory step will help your new lawn to become established more quickly.
