To ensure that you get the freshest high quality garden turf choose Ivinghoe Turf. We make sure that our turf is delivered direct from the field to your door. This allows us to make sure that the turf we deliver is fresh and ready for laying by the time it reaches your garden.
Ideally by the time your garden turf has been delivered to your home in Luton your garden will be fully prepared for laying turf. Ensure your garden is ready by removing your existing layer of turf by using a spade or a turf cutter. Clear the area of all remaining roots, weeds and stones during the removal process. Keep a flat and even laying surface and dig the entire area down using a fork to approximately six inches.
The next stage is to cover the entire area of your garden with a layer of topsoil. Just as you would with choosing your turf it is vital that you choose the best possible topsoil for your garden. Topsoil is the uppermost layer of soil and provides new garden turf with essential nutrients to the turf allowing new turf to thrive.
It is vital for new turf delivered to you to be laid as soon as possible. Turf begins to deteriorate the longer it is rolled up. Ideally you will need to begin laying garden turf within 24 hours of delivery. If this is not possible keep your turf rolls in a shaded area. Begin laying turf keeping it along a straight edge from one end of your garden to the other, continue this procedure producing a similar pattern to brickwork. You will need to make sure the grass has full contact with the topsoil throughout the laying process. It is an ideal practice to avoid walking on the lawn turf during the laying process to prevent footprints, by using a crawling board you can ensure that your turf remains flat and smooth. Avoid using small pieces of garden turf along the edges as turf tends to dry out. Cut off any overlapping excess of lawn turf using a sharp blade or lawn edger tool.
Now your turf is laid it is essential to water your newly laid turf, ideally water in the evenings to keep evaporation to a minimum.
Keep a close eye on your new lawn by lifting a corner of the turf every few days or so. After a short while you will begin to see the roots of the lawn turf to take to the soil. Continue to water until the turf has completely settled.
