How long until new turf is ready?

In general, you should give your brand new garden turf about 4 weeks to establish, ideally avoid walking on it at all for about 3 weeks. If you do need to walk on your garden during this time use a board or flat surface to spread your weight.
You should also avoid mowing your lawn during the first 4 weeks.

Once your brand new garden lawn has been laid it's important to care for it whilst it is taking root in your garden. If you look after your lawn during the first few weeks and months it will be more resilient, greener and healthier for years to come.

You'll need to regularly water your lawn during the first few weeks, even if the weather is not hot.
