Top Turf Laying related questions

The average cost to lay down synthetic grass ranges can be as low as £500 for a budget option or as high as £7,000 for a premium turf. The overall expenses will depend on the size of the space and the grade of synthetic grass you purchase. If you're keen to know more, visit out updated easy-to-refer turf laying cost guide.

Turf laying is a pretty straightforward process, but how long it takes to complete the work depends on how big or small your lawn is. For smaller areas, a turf laying procedure can take a few short hours while turf laying for larger yards can take a half's day work. If you want to know how long your service will take, you can ask your laying company, and they can readily give you an estimate.

Before laying your turf, it's best to have your soil fertilised with a quality fertiliser. After the turf laying service is complete, you can fertilise again after roughly six weeks. Make sure to fertilise every two months during the first year to encourage growth and keep your lawn healthy. Once your turf has been fully established, you can fertilise during the beginning of each season to prepare it for varying weather conditions.

You can only mow your lawn when your turf is already well-rooted and can no longer be moved. It usually occurs about three weeks after the turf laying job. To know if your turf is ready for mowing, you can lightly tug on the grass. If you can raise the turf, you need to wait a few more days. If, however, there are some grass trimmings, then that means you can already bring out your mower.

Yes, they can! We have plenty of experienced gardeners who can help you with all your garden-related tasks so your outdoor space can always look its best. From planting seedlings and watering plants to mulching and even weed removal, you can leave all your gardening needs to our reliable Taskers. You can even book a more specialised service such as grass cutting in case your garden is looking a little worse for wear.

You can outsource all types of lawn-related services through Airtasker. After laying out your turf, you can hire a Tasker for a lawn care service to ensure your turf is growing well and your entire lawn is kept healthy and thriving. We also have skilled landscapers in case you're looking to refurbish or redesign your yard with a new gazebo, pond, walkway, or other lawn and garden structures.

Contrary to popular belief, you can lay turf any time of the year. Whether it's winter, spring, summer, or autumn, laying out turf is perfectly fine as long as you know how to maintain and take care of it properly. Generally, it's best to lay turf during mild weather conditions where it's warm enough for root growth but cool enough so that the turf doesn't dry out before the roots have fully established.

What does turf laying include?

Are you looking for help to lay a new lawn for your home? Turf laying include all aspects of turfing such as removal of old grass, soil preparation, laying of new turf, and giving advice on immediate and long-term maintenance of your new lawn. It doesn't matter whether you're planning on laying artificial turf during winter or summer. 

Whatever the season, Taskers can readily work with you for all your garden turf laying needs. For more information about turf services, here are more details:

Winter turf laying

It's a common misconception that laying turf during winter is a big no-no. On the contrary, there are many benefits to turf laying during this colder season of the year. For one, your turf has enough time to settle and grow roots before the arrival of springtime. Also, laying grass turf during winter means you won't need to water it as often and thus makes it easier to maintain.

Your winter turf fitting service starts with a Tasker measuring your lawn area and preparing the ground for new turf. They level your soil using a rake, and carefully remove any weeds, stones, roots, and other debris. Your Tasker then starts to layout each turf roll ensuring each end is laid out as flat as possible. The last step involves checking if the entire lawn is shaped together firmly with no unsightly gaps between the turf.

Summer turf laying

Summer is that time of the year where people spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying their home garden or lawn. Even with warmer weather conditions, you can still lay turf during summer as long as you know the basics of proper turf maintenance. Since turf rolled up during summertime can quickly lose its quality, your Tasker immediately gets to work by preparing the ground for turfing using a specialised pre-turfing fertiliser.

They quickly layout and water your turf to keep the soil from drying out. Your Tasker also uses laying boards to help avoid walking on wet soil and damaging it before installation. Once the job is complete, your Tasker can give out some reminders, including constant watering every day for the next two weeks.

AstroTurf installation

If you prefer to install specific brands of grass such as AstroTurf, you can also get help from Taskers for artificial grass installation. Similar to a lawn laying service, the first step involves measuring your lawn area and then removing the existing surface. If you own a small lawn, this task can be completed by hand. For larger spaces, it's best to use a turf cutter.

Your Tasker covers the topsoil with a sand or stone base before they compact it using a vibrating roller or plate. Then, they carefully roll out your grass in the direction of your house for a more natural look. Finally, your Tasker trims away any excess grass and brushes your entire lawn to complete your AstroTurf installation.
