Laying your new Lawn

When laying your lawn, there are a few steps you need to take:

1. Start at a straight line such as a driveway or walk way.
2. Lay out the rolls, as you would like a rug or tiles.
3. Make sure all joints are butted tightly together without overlapping or spaces between the strips of turf.
4. Stagger the joints in each new row like a row of bricks.
5. Use a large sharp knife for shaping around trees, flowerbeds or borders.
6. Roll the grass to smooth out small bumps and air pockets, but rolling is not essential as the grass will eventually settle.

Watering New Lawn

When watering your lawn, it is recommended everyday for at least the first 3-5 weeks (depending on how quickly your lawn takes to establish). Never let your newly laid turf dry out. Once your lawn has established you can reduce the watering, but your turf will not survive without regular watering on laying. Remember; do not walk on watered areas!
