It is essential for the lawn to be watered regularly in the early morning and late evening when temperatures are low in order for the pieces to knit together. Water for at least 35 minutes, the water should go all the way through the turf onto the surface below the soil.


The new turf will be ready to mow 10 days after laying. It is best not to water the day before you cut the grass, this will allow the ground to be firm, leaving no footprints after cutting the grass. Mowing the lawn regularly will maintain a neat appearance.


Moss will develop in a lawn only if the grass is too weak to compete with it. The reasons for this may be because the grass is waterlogged, compacted soil, mowing to close or too frequently or very dry conditions.

Although some people like moss in a lawn.


Weeds will appear from time to time in the lawn. Remove the weeds by hand. Sprays can also be used for treatment of weeds, if you choose to use sprays make sure the weeds you want to control are specified by the weed killer you choose.



Lawn growing on poor soils need more feeding than those on rich soils. Feed your lawn each spring and if necessary through the summer.
