Spring is upon us and orders are flowing in for fresh garden turf.

Lawns are generally the most important part of a garden and Spring is one of the best times to lay a new lawn.

Laying new turf in spring

This time of year for laying new turf is great as the weather is not too wet or cold, though it’s been a bit miserable of late! If you are looking at laying turf in spring your new lawn will need watering regularly as you approach the summer, when it’s less likely to rain (he says hopeful of some sunshine) and during any dry spells over this period. Rolls of turf should be used as soon as possible when laying. If you are unable to lay your turf lawn immediately, try and store the rolls of grass turf in the shade. It’s important to try and not let the rolls dry out so be sure to water them lightly.
