lawn delivery kikuyu - grown localTo ensure the turf  lawns quality is maintained after delivery, the lawn needs to be laid as soon as possible, preferably on the day of delivery. The quicker the turf is laid, the better the result. The first watering should be carried out immediately after laying and should be soaked with irrigation until soggy underfoot, then kept moist for 10 days after with watering morning and night.

Turf lawns should be laid on a quality sandy loam with all previous weeds and grasses completely removed. (be aware that roundup only controls grasses and weeds that are visible). Although your soil may seem free of foreign seed there is a possibility seed can germinate after your new turf has been laid.
