How the experts install real grass?
The type of turf you choose mainly depends on your preference, and on your garden’s climate conditions. Real turf is very toddler-friendly and is mostly preferred by families with children. It has many benefits, some of which are the ability to purify the air and to absorb noise and air pollution. This is the general approach of how to install real turf:
- Clear the area. The professional landscapers always start with area clearance. They will remove every unwanted object, such as rocks, plants, pavement, deckings, old turf and vegetation.
- Add and level the soil. If there isn’t enough soil in the area that will be turfed, they will add such and level it with a compactor or lawn roller.
- Apply a layer of topsoil. A layer of topsoil is going to be applied on top of the levelled area. This is a mixture of compost and soil. If needed the experts will add some fertiliser, too.
- Lay the turf rolls. The turves are slightly overlapped, so that they can join together.
- Edge the lawn.The new lawn will be properly edged so that the turf doesn’t invade flowerbeds or other garden features.
- Receive a detailed maintenance plan for your new lawn.
Depending on the soil, season, and weather conditions in the garden, your new turf may need more extensive watering. After a month the watering should be cut down to once or twice a week so that the grass' root system can establish deeper. After that comes grass cutting that should be done on the highest setting of the mower.
