Skim off old grass using a spade, remove weeds and debris from site. Remove large stones.
Once your area is free from the old grass, rotovate the area to churn up the soil. Remove any debris, weeds and stones that come up to the surface.
Rake and level the ground again removing any debris, stones and weeds that have been missed from previous steps. The soil should be loose and soft.
Compact the ground once you have your level. You can use a whacker plate, or walk over it with your heels 3 or 4 times.
Layer with topsoil, or a sandy loam and then a final rake and level before you lay your lawn. Use boards over the surface of your sandy loam/topsoil to prevent you from stepping into the ground or onto the turf.
Carry your turf to the area you need with either a wheel barrow, or by hand. Walking on the boards as you go. Make sure you unroll the turf on the ground where it is to be laid. This prevents breakages. You can also rake between layers if you need to. Layer like bricks on a wall . Water the laid turf as you go in hot weather.

Thank you for choosing New Forest Turf Supplies to supply the turf for your garden. We hope that you are happy with the service you received and would like to give you a few tips on how to care for your new lawn.
1. Please do not walk on the grass for at least 3 weeks. The root system needs time to bed into the soil and walking on your lawn will damage them.
2. Do not mow the grass for at least 3 weeks. As above the roots need a chance to establish.
3. Do not let your turf dry out. If there is no rain we recommend watering your lawn twice a day for two weeks, then 2 or 3 times a week for a few weeks, ensuring the soil underneath stays moist. You are watering the soil and roots not just the grass. We recommend purchasing a sprinkler and watering for at least 1 hour morning and evening. In extreme dryness this will need to be done in the cooler parts of the day.
4. Your lawn should be fertilised a couple of times a year to keep it looking luscious green and healthy. Please call the office if you would like details of our aftercare package or details on the organic products we use.
