Step 1: Turf Preparation

Before laying your turf, proper preparation is key to ensuring successful growth and establishment. Start by removing any existing vegetation, rocks, or debris from the area where you plan to lay the turf. Then, cultivate the soil to a depth of at least 100mm to loosen it and improve drainage. Finally, level the surface and ensure it is smooth and free of bumps or depressions.



Step 2: Lay Your Turf in a Brick Pattern

Once your soil is prepared, it’s time to lay the turf. Start by unrolling the turf rolls along one edge of the prepared area, ensuring they are tightly butted together without overlapping. To achieve a professional look, lay the turf in a brick pattern, staggering the joints like bricks in a wall. This pattern helps to minimise visible seams and promotes even growth.



Step 3: Soak Your Newly Laid Turf

Immediately after laying the turf, give it a thorough watering to ensure that the soil beneath is moistened and the roots make good contact with the soil. Use a sprinkler or hose to water the turf evenly, making sure not to overwater or create puddles. Keep the turf consistently moist in the days following installation to encourage root establishment and prevent drying out.

Step 4: Fertilise After Four Weeks

After approximately four weeks, your newly laid turf will benefit from a boost of nutrients to promote healthy growth. Choose a high-quality turf fertiliser and apply it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Fertilising your turf after four weeks helps to replenish nutrients in the soil, encourage root development, and maintain vibrant green color.
