Can you walk on freshly laid turf?

Freshly laid turf hasn't had a chance to root into the earth beneath it yet so it's important not to rush walking on it.

The time of year and variety of grass will make a difference but in general, you should avoid walking on your garden lawn for about 3 weeks after it is laid and then continue to keep traffic light for the first 3 or 4 months. Walking on the grass occasionally after the first 3 weeks is fine but garden parties and football matches are still going to cause damage at this stage.
