How to lay a lawn
Good quality top soil to a minimum of 100mm (4"), ideally 150mm (6") should be turned over with the removal of surface stone, other debris and perennial weeds. Rolawn Blended Loam provides an ideal base for laying. Digging over or rotavating the soil is important where the soil has become compacted.
After digging walk to and fro using small steps over the whole area to firm down the loose soil.
Apply a pre-turfing fertiliser to promote early establishment of your new lawn. Rolawn's Premier Q and Autumn Lawn foods can be used for this. Two days before your turf arrives, water the area to a depth of 75mm to make the soil moist.
