|Whether it is a residence, a public place, or any commercial location, a lawn is something that can add beauty to the landscape. Different types of grasses are used to serve as Grass Turf for the lawn. Each individual will have a different landscaping need. Therefore, it would be better to look into the type of turf and investigate before spending money on its purchase. Turf is mostly laid to repair the patches of the landscapes that have been damaged. It is easier to buy turf from a turf supplying company. A good thing is that most of the lawn turf supplied is of good quality and it can be used to improve the lawn while enjoying cost saving benefit.
Turf is basically a layer of the earth that has dense grass growth and matted roots. Turf does not come in sections. It is just a surface layer. If you wish to repair your lawn with turf, then you can do it yourself too. Use a sharp half-moon edging tool for cutting the damaged area of your lawn. You have to loosen the soil underneath. Lawn turf of the same size must be cut and placed it there. Do not forget to use sanding lawn dressing to dust it. Moreover, if there are some gaps left, you can place pieces of turf there too. The edges of the turf need to be pressed. You can do that with your feet. After this, water that piece and leave it for a few days. Make sure that nobody walks on it. Within a few days, it will start rooting.
If you are adding new landscape, then you might prefer using seed because it is less costly. It would be better to lay turf instead because seeds require more time to grow and their maintenance will turn out to be costly for you. Here are some guidelines for your convenience:
It is recommended to lay turf in moderate temperature. Early spring or autumn is going to be a good time for this purpose.
The soil must be prepared before ordering the turf.
The area where you are going to roll the turf on must be outlined. You can use garden string and spikes for outlining.
It will be fine if the turf is overlapped because the idea is to lay each turf close to another. Half inch overlapping is bearable.
You can also cut turf strips to fill in the empty spots to give a natural look.
It is better not to walk on the land where you have newly added turf. If you have to walk, make sure that you walk carefully without disturbing the placement.
Once you are done with laying the turf, it is recommended to tap the turf with a backside of the garden spade. Make sure that you do that gently.
After this, you will be ready to hydrate the turf with water.
