Get a beautiful, even stripy lawn that is hard wearing... 

An attractive and lasting lawn requires proper preparation and a quality grade of turf as well as the correct care once laid.

All installations are quoted inclusively and as standard:

  • Prepare the top soil. Rotavate and roll the ground to provide an even surface for the turf.
  • The lawn is rolled out and watered within 30 minutes of installation taking care that thin strips of turf are not exposed and vulnerable. 
  • The lawn is then rolled to remove any air pockets and help highlight any areas that need attention.
  • The freshly laid turf is then watered, usually within 30 minutes of installation.

Your new lawn should take about two weeks to take root during which time it should be watered daily (according to weather conditions) and six weeks until normal use.

The great news is that research has shown that a well presented garden can modestly increase the value of your property.

So perhaps if maintaining your lawn is not practical, you may wish to consider an artificial lawn.

Everything You Need to Know

A freshly laid lawn is beautiful, but vulnerable in the first few weeks.

It will need daily watering for the first two weeks. Ensure that you pay particular attention to areas that receive a lot of sunshine and reflective heat from nearby buildings.

After two weeks, less frequent but heavier watering is recommended.

Averagely, it is fine to walk on the new turf after approximately three weeks after installation. By this time the turf will have taken root to the soil below. After six weeks your lawn is ready to be used normally.

The first mow of the lawn is vitally important and this should be left until the lawn is 8-9cm high. Give the grass a tug before the first mow to check that the grass is firmly rooted. Then according to season and growth, mow your lawn approximately every two weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I walk on my new turf?

We recommend keeping off the newly laid turf for two to three weeks.

After six weeks your lawn should be ready for normal use.

When should I mow my new lawn?

Grass grows at different rates throughout the year, but we recommend the first mow when the grass is 5 to 7cm high. This will give more shoots a chance of growing from the base and giving a thicker lawn.

On the first cut only remove about 1cm of the grass and increase this gradually over the next few cuts.

Make sure the grass is upright and it is better that the grass is not wet.

Remove all the clippings when you first cut the lawn. 

In time, leave the clippings on the lawn during the spring and summer time as they will release up to 30% of your lawn's required nutrients.

When is it best to lay my new lawn?

Turf is best laid in mid autumn which for the record is officially the 22nd of September through to the 21st December. So effectively we are looking at October or November.

Another advantageous time is late winter (e.g March) as there is less chance of frost damage and the lawn can remain relatively undisturbed during these periods and there is typically more rainfall so less in the way of watering is required.

Remember that normal use of a lawn will take six weeks, so if you enjoy your garden during the spring and summer months, this has to be borne in mind.

Note that a lawn can be laid at any time of year though.

How do I feed my new lawn?

Feeding your lawn is important at any time of year to maintain a healthy lawn.

Here is a quick guide:

Lawns laid in Spring (Apr - Jun)

Your grass will be growing strongly in the milder temperatures and increased sunlight. To support this growth it will need lots of nutrients.

Use a specialist spring/summer lawn feed, not a "weed and feed" as this is too severe for a young lawn.

Apply this every 6 weeks until September (4-5 weeks for light sandy soil) at which time you should switch to an autumn/winter feed.

Lawns laid in Summer (Jul - Sep)

Plenty of sunshine (we hope) and less rainfall means that your lawn will need plenty of water. Little and often is the key here as random drenching's can actually wash nutrients out of the soil.

Apply a spring/summer feed after about 3-4 cuts or 5 weeks.

Grass will grow less aggressively on the surface at this time of year, but there is plenty going on underneath.

Lawns laid in Autumn (Oct - Dec)

If the weather is mild, the soil will hold its warmth and your new turf will be busy putting its roots down.

Use an autumn/winter feed 4 to 6 weeks after the turf is laid that is LOW in nitrogen.

This feed is more for the roots than the surface grass.

Lawns laid in Winter (Jan - Mar)

At this time of year there is minimal growth and there is no real need to feed the lawn at this time of year.

Later in the winter there is more chance of spring conditions at which point you can switch to a spring/summer feed.
