Laying lawn turf.

Laying lawn turf.

I KNOW it’s too early, but, we desperately want to get it done! We have transplanted several shrubs to other areas in the garden from a sort of half moon/semi circle bed.
The bed was my idea several years ago, to be honest, it was never the best of ideas!
So, we’re laying top soil and turf tomorrow and it will increase the ‘small lawn’ in the back garden.
Plus, instead of our bizarre lawn shape we have, it’ll look a better size, shape and…I may just put stripes in! 😉

Good luck tomorrow, Kate...don't forget to keep it watered in this dry spell...hope it goes well for you.

Good luck Kate. Hope it greens up well for you. With a new lawn a little feed would probably do around May when it's got it's roots established. Water well if you have a dry spell.

Hopefully it will stay dry for you to do your turf laying this Saturday.

I hope it works for you … the mild weather this winter should help, and you’ll doubtless get plenty of useful rain in the next few weeks 🙂.

Thank you, Julia. I appreciate your advice...I'll be taking it on board 👍

Thank you, Linda! I do hope it will take and eventually green up nicely.
We usually treat the lawn in spring, so, we'll definitely continue. 👍

Thanks Sue, I'm keeping everything crossed! The forecast isn't good. So we're going to get up extra early and crack on 😊

Thank you, Sheila. You could be right there, it's been a mild winter so far 🤞plus, the weekend here, from lunchtime one is rain, rain and more rain.

Hope you've managed to crack on. Been out in our garden for a couple of hours and nearly blown away. Feeling smug about what has been achieved, so hope you are, too!!

Thanks Ange!!! I'm pleased you're feeling chuffed! Good to hear 👍
We were out for several hours...bitter cold, windy and trying to keep warm in many layers.
I ended up coming inside and OH carried on the final touches and tidying up..I got lunch prepared.
I thought I'd have a catnap afterwards, but my friend just rang for a long chat...
It's pouring with rain, but I'm happy with that, only as it'll help the turf settle in.

I hope it has worked for you and you didn't get any severe weather!

at least the rain will help water it in but don't rely just on the rain.
