Preparation 

Preparation is Key 

Inadequately prepared and underfertilised ground will never give you satisfactory results, ground preparation is vital for the future of your lawn. 
 
Your existing turf should be removed. The soil needs to be turned over to a depth of 15cm or 4”. This can be done just by digging or by using a rotovator, making sure the area is free of any debris, stones or strong weeds. 
 
A pre-turfing fertiliser should then be used and raked into the soil. To get the best results you must follow the manufacturer’s guide. 
 

Raking 

The ground should be raked over to produce a smooth surface, and then can be lightly rolled or firmed by foot, to highlight any soft areas. A wide rake makes the levelling easier – a process which may be repeated until the ground is evenly firm and smooth, although not compact. 
 
Now your lawn is ready to turf. 
 

Laying your new lawn 

Firstly, lay a whole roll around the edge of your lawn. 
Try to lay the turf in long lines with staggered joints (like brickwork) making sure they are laid tightly together. 
 
Once a line of turf is laid – place planks on the top of the turf and proceed to work from these. This keeps an even compression and ensures no harm to your grass. 
 
When you have finished, water your new lawn thoroughly. 
 
Keep yourselves and pets off the lawn until mowed, for approximately 3-4 weeks.
