How to prepare for your turf

 

 

1.       Clear site of all weeds and existing lawn varieties

 

• It is important no existing weeds or lawn is present, otherwise you risk it contaminating your new lawn.

 

• Spray the area with Roundup (or equivalent) at least 2 weeks before you lay your turf.

 

2.       Prepare soil

 

• It is recommended to rotary hoe or dig the soil to a depth of 100mm, deeper if you can. This will allow a soft      and accessible medium for the roots to establish.

 

• Then level the area with a rake or shovel. 

 

3.       Fertilise

 

• Before laying your turf apply a starter fertiliser or a layer of chicken manure pellets. Give the soil a light water    to provide a moist base for your turf.

 

4.       Lay your turf

 

• Finally – lay your new lawn, or talk to us about laying it for you. It is critical to get water on your lawn straight     away, especially during the hot months.
