Laying lawn turf is the simplest way to create a new lawn.
It is more expensive than sowing grass seed, but it means you’ll have an instant, usable area of lawn with no weeds or moss to spoil the effect.
It’s worth taking the time to prepare the ground before you lay your turf – found out how to prepare the ground for a new lawn.
The best time to lay turf is during spring or autumn, when plenty of rain will help the new grass establish roots in time for summer sun or winter frosts.
