We often get asked, “Can we lay new turf in winter?” The short answer is yes but the turf will remain dormant until the weather and the ground warms up in spring.
The process of establishing your new turf is the same but will take less water to establish. After a thorough soaking on laying the turf, water 2 days a week for the first 2 weeks and then once a week. We don’t want to over water and leave the turf susceptible to disease.
In spring, once the warmer weather has arrived, give your turf a light fertilise with a product from the Scotts Lawn Builder range suitable to your turf variety and water in.
Laying turf in winter does have it’s advantages as the turf can be established and ready to thrive come summer time. Talk to Associated Turf about the best turf varieties for your area.
