When laying turf it is essential to use an appropriate Underlay Soil.You can order your turf directly from us as well.
Although turf can survive on a minimum 50mm bed of soil, it is recommended to lay a minimum of 75mm of soil in order to allow the growth of high quality turf. This is especially the case when laying upon poor-quality ground.
When laying a new lawn, be sure to add slightly more soil than usual, as newly applied turf sinks slightly when wet.
Sand, when washed and mixed with soil, increases the drainage capability of your lawn.
