Before laying your new turf, it is important that your garden is correctly prepared to ensure that you have a successful establishment of the new garden turf. Below we have listed a few steps to get you started:
Removing your existing lawn – the first step is to remove your existing turf rolls. The best way to do this is to use a spade or specialist turf cutter.
Clear your soil of debris – using a weeding tool such as a hoe, clear your soil of debris including roots, weeds and moss.
Keep a flat surface – ensure that you keep an even, firm and flat laying surface. This will stand you in good stead when it comes to laying your new turf.
Raking – Rake your soil to produce a smooth, level surface. Lightly roll or tread the surface by foot to reveal any soft patches which can then be raked level. Continue this process until the whole area is evenly firm and level – the surface should be firm but not compacted.
