How to Get the Best Possible Results With Your New Lawn.

Set your new lawn up to succeed before you even lay it! Preparing the site before the new turf is installed is essential in its overall lifelong performance. Read below to see what you need to do to prep your site.


All existing lawns and weeds need to be sprayed with Roundup 14 days before laying your new lawn. This way you can have a smooth and clean area to lay your new lawn.


Excavation is needed if the existing ground is compacted and the levels are too high against paths and driveways. The level should be 150mm to 200mm below any path.

Soil quality

Soil quality. Your local nursery will be able to give you advice. If it is of poor quality (clay based or too sandy) this can be rectified by purchasing a good quality top soil from your local nursery. Quantity of soil required for every 100 sq metres is between 5 and 10 tonnes, which will give you a depth of 25mm to 50mm.


Spread the top soil out evenly using a rake or a piece of timber. Making the surface, to be turfed, as flat as possible will give a better result.


If the top soil doesn’t have any fertilizers mixed in then add, at the recommended rate, fertiliser/lawn food to the area to get the best possible results.


If your soil is of good quality, this should be sprayed with Roundup and left for the 14 days, as above. The area needs to be worked over to a depth of 100 – 200mm (hire a cultivator or a rotary hoe for larger areas).


For best results the turf should be laid on the day it is delivered. This way it is at its freshest when installed, allowing an easier and healthier establishment.

Turf Soil

Water within 30 minutes of laying. Turf requires immediate soil contact and moisture to thrive, making water a vital necessity when establishing and taking root.

How to Measure Your Site

Measure the length and width in metres and multiply the two measurements. If you have an irregular shape, draw a plan and draw rectangles over the area and add up the total in square metres.

Below is a general turf maintenance chart that will ensure your lawn looks good all-year-round. Please consult with your turf supplier to check that this is the right routine for your turf variety as some may vary depending on the location and weather conditions.


For a healthy green lawn, fertilise every 6-8 weeks


Spray your lawn with grub killer and fungicide in the warmer, humid months

Weed Spraying

During the cooler time of year to prevent excessive damage to turf

Top Dressing
