In our previous blog post, we named springtime as the best time to think about laying new turf. However, there is no reason to put off you plans for new turf laying over the summer months.
Whether you are laying it yourself, or calling in our professional turf layers, there are a few extra things to consider when refreshing your garden with new turf in the warmer season. As highly experienced turf layers that are dedicated to providing a reliable service, we have compiled a list of things you may want to know if you are considering new turf for your garden over summer.
For the best quality summertime turf laying service in Nottingham and surrounding areas, be sure to call the team at Greendale Turf Supplies on 07583 502427.
Be mindful of dehydration
When laying turf in the summer, due to the hot weather, there is a slightly higher risk of dehydration. Because the sun dries out the ground at a faster rate, your new lawn turf will need plenty of water to ensure it stays healthy and thrives.
The team at Greendale Turf Supplies will make sure that the ground in which you intend have your new turf laid on is sufficiently prepared and properly treated. The turf laying process will then be carried out with plenty of water to make sure it is fully hydrated.
If you are laying our turf by yourself, be sure to lay it as close to the delivery day as you can, to ensure the warm weather doesn’t affect the quality of the turf.
Pay extra attention to the joins
If laying turf yourself in hot weather, be sure to make sure that the turf joins are properly watered. If the grass is allowed to dry out, the turf will shrink, leaving you unwanted gaps in your lawn.
After laying the turf, water it in the morning and the evening for a couple of weeks until the grass is well-rooted.
You can check that the water is reaching the soil underneath by sliding a skewer down through the grass – if it comes out dry, you should water some more.
However, overwatering can cause the base soil to become over-compacted, which makes it difficult for the new grass to root. To ensure your turf is laid to perfection, we recommend our turf laying services which are available in Nottingham and surrounding areas.
