Why do you need a landscaper that specialises in laying turf?
Hiring a landscaper who specialises in laying turf is a good idea when you want a new lush green lawn. Laying turf involves specific techniques and knowledge to ensure proper installation and long-term success, so we don’t recommend that you try it yourself.
Here are the reasons we think it’s better to use a specialist landscaper to lay turf in your garden:
Knowledge of turf types: A specialist landscaper can help you choose the right type of turf for your needs, considering factors like climate, soil type, sunlight exposure and the intended use of the lawn.
Turf installation techniques: Laying turf requires careful handling and precise techniques to ensure seamless joints and a level surface. A specialist landscaper has the all the skills and experience to lay the turf correctly, avoiding common installation mistakes.
Efficient installation: With experience in laying turf, a specialist landscaper can complete the installation process much more quickly than you could. This means you can enjoy your new lawn sooner with fewer disruptions to your daily routine.
Weed control: Weed control is essential in the early stages of turf establishment to prevent unwanted plants from competing with the new grass. A specialist landscaper knows the most effective weed control measures to ensure your lawn remains weed-free.
Guarantees and warranties: Many turf layers offer guarantees or warranties on their installations. This provides you with peace of mind knowing that any issues that occur within the first weeks or months will be taken care of.
Long-term success: A properly-installed lawn by a specialist landscaper increases the likelihood of long-term success. A healthy and well-established lawn enhances the overall appearance of your garden and provides a pleasant environment to relax or host in.
What does a landscaper that lays turf do?
A landscaper who lays turf has expertise in installing natural grass rolls in gardens and outdoor spaces. Their primary focus is on establishing healthy, lush, great-looking lawns for residential or commercial properties. Here are the key things a turf layer will do:
Site assessment: The landscaper will assess your garden or outdoor area before beginning installation. They will examine the soil quality and measure the area to ensure they order enough turf for the lawn.
Soil preparation: Before laying the turf, the landscaper prepares the soil to create an ideal environment for the new grass to take root. This may involve removing weeds, digging the soil and firming it before raking it.
Turf delivery: The landscaper coordinates the delivery of fresh, healthy rolls of turf to your garden. It's crucial to install the turf as soon as possible after delivery to maintain its quality.
Turf laying: Laying turf requires specific techniques to ensure the rolls fit seamlessly together, avoiding gaps and uneven spots. The landscaper will carefully lay the turf rolls in straight lines, ensuring proper alignment and a level surface.
Trimming and edging: The landscaper trims the turf rolls at the edges to fit the area perfectly. They also edge the lawn to create a clean and defined boundary between the turf and other landscape elements.
Rolling and tamping: The landscaper will use a roller or tamping equipment to press the turf firmly into the soil. This step helps eliminate air pockets and facilitates root growth.
Watering: After the turf is laid, it needs immediate watering to help the grass establish its roots, if rain isn’t forecast that day. The landscaper will advise you on the best watering routine for your lawn during the initial establishment period to promote healthy growth.
Aftercare and maintenance: The landscaper should provide guidance on proper aftercare and maintenance practices to ensure the long-term health of the lawn. This may include watering schedules, mowing techniques, fertilisation and weed control.
Final inspection: Once the lawn is complete, the landscaper will perform a final inspection to ensure the turf is laid correctly, the edges are secure and it looks great overall. They should also invite you to do your own inspection to make sure you’re happy with your new lawn before they leave.
