How long will fresh turf last without being laid?

Fresh turf, whether it’s cheap lawn turf or expensive lawn turf, will last around 12 hours before it starts to deteriorate (less in hotter summer conditions). You can slightly slow the deterioration by keeping the garden turf rolls in the shade, but even with this method, deterioration will quickly set in.

To get the best from your new turf, it’s always best to lay it as soon as possible. This is why it’s important to have the ground fully prepared before ordering your bulk turf from your supplier.
