Laying New Turf
Autumn into Winter

As the season turns from autumn to winter, this is the ideal time of year to lay new turf. Surprising, we know, but it really is the way forward – and here’s why…

  1. Heavy soil can be a pain to work with, but a well-prepared base makes life so much easier.

  2. Using the right machinery makes a lot of difference – make sure you are using the correct machine for the job, so you don’t create a bog!

  3. The turf is less likely to burn or be stressed during the laying process.

  4. Less water will be used during the initial process, as the turf and soil beneath will already be holding much more than during the summer period.

  5. Much better for the wildlife around the area – birds and animals won’t be nesting, and you won’t be disturbing pollinating bees. Keep an eye out just in case of visitors, but generally this is a much better idea than spring or summer turfing jobs.

  6. Any drainage issues can easily be spotted and fixed.

  7. Most trees and plants are dormant during this time of year.

  8. The turf has more time to develop and form strong roots.

  9. Less/no mowing until spring.

  10. Clients are less likely to want to get out in the garden and walk over freshly laid turf.
