Hi, I'm just looking or some advice. We've just moved into a new build property that has no turf! Is it possible to do it this time of the year? Would love to have it done do the wee one can use it when it's dry outside. Thanks for any advice.

Grass doesn't grow when it's very cold. If it doesn't grow the roots won't go into the soil, it will just sit there and become dislodged if it's played on..

Grass wont grow below 5 C, as Nut says, it will just turn to mud. Spend the winter getting the area prepped, and any hard standing or paths put in place. Then turf in April and it will grow away well.

Is 5C the same as 43F fidgetbones?

Grass doesn't grow below 43F, I learnt that at school.

For years it was filed as useless info but later refiled as useful

43 F is 6.1 C so near enough on a cold windy day.
