Turl Laying Case Study

Here it's time to lay the turf. The area was approximately 100 square meters and the turf comes in 1 metre squares for easy measuring and fitting.

Before laying the turf, ensure the ground is level and firm. It's always a good idea to water the soil prior to laying the turf.

It's also worth making note that turf level should be slightly higher than the surrounding ground in order to give allowance for the turn to settle.

We use the offset-pattern method of laying turf and use boards and planks to ensure we don't damage the turf.

The finished result.
