31 May Instant Turf Guide for Beginners
Are you planning on revamping your garden so that you can achieve a more attractive lawn? If you are considering installing instant turf in your backyard for the first time, we’ve got the easiest to follow installation guide to ensure that you achieve healthy and beautiful results.
Laying the Turf
The first thing you need to do is to install the turf on any straight-edged path or driveway, making sure that there’s no disruption in the level soil surface. Use a large knife to cut off excess turf and use it for the next row. Once you have installed each section, water it well and use a heavy roller to leave a smooth surface for mowing.
To ensure your turf stays moist and well-watered, it’s best to establish a watering schedule to prevent it from dryness and stress. During hot weather periods, we suggest watering your lawn three times a day – morning, noon, and evening. In the wetter and cooler weather periods, water the turf once in the morning daily.
Mow your new lawn 7-14 days from the day of installation, depending on the growth and variety of the lawn. During warmer months, increase the mowing height for a healthier lawn. Always keep your mower blades sharp and avoid mowing wet grass.
Choose the Type of Instant Turf
Choosing instant turf can be a challenge and it’s necessary to determine the type of turf that suits your outdoor space. It’s important to research the different types of turf as they thrive in different locations and temperatures.
