How to water your lawn turf?

Following laying of your lawn turf, for the next two weeks, keep the lawn moist (do not saturate). For the first few days water daily with 2.5cm (1″) of water (you can measure the amount being dispersed from the sprinkler via long shallow containers on the lawn when sprinkler is in action). As the lawn turf gets established, reduce frequency of watering. For more information please see How to water your lawn turf section.

Minimise / avoid walking on your new lawn for the first two weeks to allow the turf to establish a strong root system.

During hot summer days (which we don’t get many of in Ireland!) we’d suggest watering 2.5cm (1″) of water every 4 – 7 days. Without sufficient watering, your lawn can stop growing and can turn brown. Just like many plants, you shouldn’t over water your lawn. You should water it as required as the colour turns a greenish-blue. It is best to water in the morning before the sun shines as if watering in sunshine there would be greater evaporation. Evening watering should be avoided as the lawn remains damp longer and can lead to fungal growth.

A rule of thumb would be when you walk on the Lawn and your Foot prints stay on the Lawn for some time the Lawn needs watering.
