My Turf Laying Tips

  1. Prepare the soil surface by loosening (or rotivating), remove all stones and dead vegetation then level and compact the soil.
  2. For the finishing touch and well worth the extra work and cost use wooden edging to complete your new turfed garden’s look.
  3. Push the turf so its tightly packed together being careful not to tear the grass turf.
  4. Start from the outer sides of the area you are working on and working inwards will allow you to save the cuts until last, this way you can fill with left over off cuts if you are running low on turf.
  5. Flood your new turf garden lawn, you only need a cheap hose spray sprinkler system so worry not about the cost.

Typical Turf Laying Jobs

Let’s Get To It!

As you can see our turf has arrived, our garden to be turfed is mostly leveled and awaiting our attention.

Check Your Turf

As you are unloading your new turf check for weeds, moss and any infestations as your turfing company may not be interested after they have left.

It’s All In The Technique

I know I look awkward down there but I am not only comfy, i’m forcing the turf pieces together resulting in a firm, solid bedding.

What’s The Plank For?

This is not only my line to work to but also my simple, trusty indication of level which every turf laying gardener must use.

Finished Front Laid Turf Lawn

Our front turf garden lawn is now complete and flooding with water from a simple cheap sprinkler to prevent the root zone from drying out before the grass gets chance to bed into the underlying soil.

Keep Off The Grass!

Just leave your newly turf lawn alone while it establishes its roots system into your existing soil.

Its Back Garden Time!

I’m now laying the back garden’s new grass turfing. I started from the edge of the fencing and i’m working inwards leaving the odd bit that would need cutting until last so I can use off cuts if necessary.

Consistency Is The Key

Don’t Look at the whole area, just concentrate on each individual piece making sure you have butted and squashed it up to it’s neighbour equally well. Take care not to tear your new turfing, it is not as durable as you may think.

Up To The New Edging

Almost finished, just need to lay our turf right up to our new wooden edging while maintaining our butt and squish method and maintaining level with our trusty wooden plank.
