The Secret Gardener – insider tips on turf laying

  • Lay along a straight edge, butting up closely. Alternate subsequent rows in a ‘brick wall’; style pattern. 

  • You should use planks or sleepers on the new laid turves and never walk directly on them to avoid damage to your new turf. 

  • Firm down the turves gently with the head of a rake or similar so you achieve the optimum contact between turf and soil. 

  • Fill any cracks with light, but good, weeded topsoil and gently press it down.
