Self-Preparation Including Turf Installation

If you’re used to getting your hands dirty in the garden, and feel confident in tackling your turf installation yourself, then take a look at our easy to follow guide below: Step 1 - Preparation – A few weeks prior to turf installation, you’ll need to prepare the designated area by removing all weed matter, including roots. We recommend applying glyphosate better known as Round Up (this will kill the entire weed, including the roots). For the best final result, it’s also a good idea to rotary hoe the area and level off. Step 2 – Install topsoil – Sandy loam with a bit of organic matter is our recommended top soil. Lay at a depth of 50-70mm. Spread evenly across the area, before rolling the soil to create a firm, uniform base. Step 3 – Install turf – Spread a soil conditioner evenly over the surface (we recommend our Supercharge soil conditioner), using 20kgs per 50sqm. Start laying your turf from the outside edges, creating a border, and ensuring you stagger the joins like brickwork (to prevent the turf drying out). Lay each roll as close as possible to the next without overlapping. For best results, roll the new turf once it has been laid.
