Lay Turf In 3 Steps
Turf needs to be laid within 24 hours of being cut so order it just before use, keeping it moist and in a shady spot.
Level off and spread a layer of turf underlay, which is a very sandy soil mix then roll it to level and lay the turf.
Water new turf at least once a day until established, which depends on the time of year.
Keep it moist but don’t flood it. You know it’s drying out if the leaves shrivel and lose colour.
