Thinking of refreshing the look of your yard with a new lawn? Or maybe you’ve just built a house, but the landscaping is not yet done.
If it’s within your budget you should really seek an expert to both advise you on the right turf for your home and to lay it for you.
Good Preparation Is Everything
Laying turf is a bit like painting, as in the initial preparation is everything to ensure the end result is both pleasing to the eye and long-lasting. If the ground and soil is not prepared right before laying the turf, there is a good chance your new lawn will not flourish and stand the test of time.
First the soil should be tested in the area where the turf is to be laid to ensure it is suitable to support and nourish the kind of turf you have decided to lay. The following factors are important:
- Acidity of the soil
- Overall soil quality and composition
If the soil proves to be inadequate as it, then fresh soil should be applied to the ground to ensure a nice healthy bed upon which the new lawn turf can be laid. You want to give your fresh lawn every chance possible to take to its new home and thrive. If you do it all right from the very beginning, and you maintain the health of your lawn with proper lawn care, then you will have a lush green lawn to enjoy for many years to come.
You could theoretically do this part yourself, but unless you’re experienced at laying turf, the end result will be that much better if you get experts to do it. Laying turf can be hard work and there is definitely an art to it, so best to seek professional help.
