How do I stop turf rolls from drying out?

Ideally, garden turf rolls should be laid as soon as possible and preferably within 24 hours or less after delivery, especially during the hotter months. If you do need to store them for slightly longer, to keep them from drying out, follow these basic rules:

Stack in the shade – By stacking your fresh turf in the shade you will slow down the drying out process, but this is only a very temporary solution.

Stack in separate piles – Try to stack the turf rolls in small, spaced-out piles rather squashing them all together therefore preventing air from flowing and creating a damp and dark environment where mould could grow.
