Lawn turf is laid on a seed bed prepared as for seed sowing. It must be even, firm and the surface fine. Apply 100g per square metre of general fertiliser before final cultivation.

Lay the sod with a straight line strip down the middle and work out to the edges and corners. Ideally working from a row of planks to protect the turf and to press it down. Water after laying and keep just moist if there is no rain.
