Lawn Laying:-A Complete Guide To Establishing A New Lawn.

Lawn Laying is not an easy task to do. In the summer, turf varieties like buffalo, couch, Kikuyu, and Zoysia will actively develop for a quicker establishment.

Why establish a fresh lawn in the summer?

The lawn is laid in summer because the weather is favourable for the grasses to grow.

Steps to follow while lawn laying

• Install the grass as soon as it is delivered because the lawn will already be actively developing, which will help the lawn develop a robust root system.

•If a lawn is stretched across a big area, as soon as the green grass is laid, watering is needed in a few pockets immediately.

•After the lawn is laid on the ground, the lawn area needs a constant water supply.

•Once the installation is done, the lawn should be watered thoroughly so that the grass’s roots remain wet and don’t dry out. During regular intervals, turf is checked to determine if it needs more water.

•As soon as the grass grows, water quantity gets reduced.

Turf should always come last when it comes to landscaping the backyard of a house. The space considered for the installation of lawn laying should be appropriate. The availability of good-quality water, mowing, and shade is considered.

5 Steps to be followed for Lawn Laying

1. Proper drainage:-

While making the base ready for turf, good water flow is crucial—and sometimes ignored. In times of heavy rain, an effort should be made to ensure no water clogs the lawn area.

2. Arranging turf on time:-

As turf perishes quickly, the lawn laying begins as it gets delivered. The turf should only be ordered when the base is available for spreading the turf. If it is left unused for a few days during the summer, the turf will burn on the pallet and lose its shine and colour.

3. Making the grass dry

In keeping the grass alive in the first stages of its life, it is essential to ensure that it receives plenty of water. A thorough watch should be kept if there is any indication that the lawn is drying out. There is a possibility that the leaves are bending, weakening, or changing colour. Extra water should be applied if any discrepancy is seen.

4. Foliage

 The new grass is indeed stressed if there is an eruption of the seed head. It might be both hungry and thirsty or either of the two. This is a clue that the grass needs to receive a fertiliser application or extra water.

5. The final maintenance 

The constant flow of water must be maintained on the lawn for the first few weeks in the summer after installing a new lawn. Depending on the area’s weather, the lawn may need a constant supply of more water. The lawn laying will typically require at least three buckets of water every day. Nevertheless, this may alter based on the climate where a person is living. If any problem arises, the neighbourhood turf supplier who knows the nitty gritty of lawn laying is the ideal person to contact for more detailed guidance.
