Creating a new lawn from scratch is easy if you prepare the site thoroughly. In autumn, when the soil is warm and moist , your turf will establish quickly. Turf can also be laid in spring, but summer drought can put it (and you) under stress, requiring a great deal of watering.
Locally grown turf is available, when weather conditions permit, from early spring until autumn. Pre-ordering for collection at the weekend is advisable.
