When is the best time to lay a new turf lawn?

Deciding on a time to lay your new turf lawn can impact how easy it is to take care of it in the weeks following.  This is especially important if there is an upcoming heatwave.

The best time to lay your new turf lawn is in Spring and September, when the temperatures are milder and more rainfall.

Another aspect to consider is freezing temperatures.  Laying a new turf lawn in winter could mean that you cannot unroll it, or the turf cannot be harvested.  If you have already laid your new lawn and it suddenly freezes, don’t panic.  The frost and freezing temperatures shouldn’t damage your lawn but avoid walking on it as it can damage the blades of grass and leave visible footprints behind.

Overall, we suggest mid-autumn as the optim time to lay a new lawn.
