Once your soil is prepared and the turf has been delivered you are ready to lay.
The most important thing to remember is turf must always be laid within 24 hours in Autumn/Winter and immediately in the Spring/Summer months.
Using the following steps even the novice gardener should be able to lay our turf, however if you require professional assistance use our landscaper finder to find contact details of certified Spearhead Turf installers in your region.
- Start along the longest, straightest edge of the lawn area. Unrolling strip by strip ensuring that the underside of the turf has full contact with the soil.
- Lay the next strip from the opposite end and continue to work across the lawn in this manner producing a pattern similar to brickwork.
- Overlap the turf at row ends and cut neatly with a sharp knife or half moon lawn cutter. Avoid using small pieces of turf as these can dry out. Don’t overstretch the turf.
- To avoid gaps water the turf immediately after installation and for the first 5 days.
