Turf laying

Preparation & Aftercare

Pre-preparation of the soil surface prior to laying turf is vital. For best results lay the turf on the day of delivery. Once the turf has been laid, make sure that it is kept damp (without overwatering) until the roots have anchored it firmly to the soil. You can start mowing the turf as soon as the surface feels firm enough to walk on.

An application of Activate R, containing Enhanced Root Developer (ERD) will assist the rooting establishment process. With our Greens turf on USGA rootzone, it’s advisable to apply a fungicide, as insurance, soon after laying. Although the turf will have had prophylactic fungicide treatments during production, the stress of lifting and transport can make the turf more susceptible to Fusarium.

Following the laying, take the cutting height down slowly over the following weeks, never cutting off more than a third of the leaf at any one time.

A professional laying service for big rolls is available when required. Laying is undertaken using bespoke equipment. Where time is short, 10,000 sq.m can be laid in 24 hours. Ask your Rigby Taylor representative for more details.
