When you need to have a new lawn put together it may sound like a particularly huge job that will set you back a long way in trying to develop the kind of garden that you desire but this does not have to be the case. It is generally said that you should consider laying your new lawn during the autumn so there is the benefit of the rainfall that comes when the winter months arrive.
Choosing the right turf to purchase
When you are looking around in the hope of finding the type of turf that will serve your garden well there are some key details to keep in mind. It may well be possible for you to go and see the kind of turf that you want in a garden. By doing this you get a chance to see how well the turf that the supplier is selling has adapted to someone’s lawn and it can help to make up your mind on whether to make the purchase.

It is sensible to give yourself a few options to choose from when it comes to the supplier of the turf so do not be tempted to take the first one you find without seeing what the others can offer you. Think about how the lawn will be used in your garden, for example, will it be an area that will be subjected to the kids playing out on it frequently? Make sure that you discuss this with the supplier so you can be led in the right direction with the type to buy.
Make a start
Once you have the turf bought and ready to be laid in your garden you should not waste any time in getting started. Before you put it into place you should take the time to get rid of weeds and other objects in the area. Once you have placed the first section of the turf press it down into the soil with the rake and get ready to add the next lot alongside it.
