It will be three weeks next Thursday since I had a turf lawn laid in my back garden. I have been watering it twice a day, however parts of it have grown better than others. Is this normal. I would also know as to when I would give it the first cut and how high should I raise the lawnmower. It’s a petrol lawnmower. I have been told that feeding and weeding should be done at the end of the summer season, please let me know if this is true.

Lawn turf takes quite quickly and often better is some places than others as the soil varies, and especially in sunny weather. But there has been quite a few showers too.

Tug gently to see if the sods are rooted and ease off the watering. Mow with the blades at medium to high.

Weeds are unlikely to be a problem in new turf. Feed in a month or so if growth is slow.
