How To Prepare the Area for Lawn Turf?

Dig to a depth of between around 12cm, raking off any debris – (debris includes rocks, roots, clumps, stones which are larger than 3cm in diameter.)

Ensure you have at least 10cm (4″) of quality topsoil suitable for the area. Without the right topsoil, you run the risk of disease developing with your new sod over time. Rake the topsoil to a depth of about 3cm (1 inch), lightly rolling. Any hollows will then be visible.

Grade the slope away from buildings and try to level out steep slopes where possible.

You’re now ready to lay your lawn turf.
