Timing

Turf can be laid at any time of year however there are benefits to having a new lawn laid in early spring and early-mid autumn. It’s always easier to work with mother nature than against it, early spring and autumn is when plants generally take on the majority of their growth, also the days remain fairly long and the ground remains moist for longer periods of time, meaning far less initial maintenance and less watering. Once your new lawn is laid you will be required to keep directly off of the new turf for at least 3 weeks, making it more convenient to have a lawn laid when the garden is not in regular use.

Type of lawn

We source our topsoil and lawns from a well-known trusted supplier which we have been working with for many years. The turf we lay is known as ‘Greenscape’ Lawn and its designed for urban inner-city gardens. The turf has a medium texture and is very fast rooting, it’s also extremely hard wearing and keeps its colour all year round. The typical seed composition is a mixture of 5 grass species, consisting of approx.; 25% Abersprite, 15% Limousine, 20% Abercharm, 20% Louisa & 20% Swing, all highly rated species and together create a great looking lawn, perfect for the London garden.

Maintenance

Maintaining your new lawn is very straight forward, however it does require a certain amount of care and attention to ensure it thrives and continues to live a healthy life. New lawns require regular watering and its imperative to not walk across your new lawn for at least 3 weeks. If you need to access areas of your lawn its best to use boards to distribute your weight. Once the initial bedding period has passed, grass is very hardy and will require less attention.
