Prepare the Soil

The better prepared your soil is, the better your turf will perform.

  1.  Get rid of any existing weeds and grasses, using a weed and grass killer.  Follow package directions.
  2.  Rototill soil so that you have a minimum of 2 inches of good, loose top soil (4" to 6" is ideal).
  3.  Soil test your lawn.  See your area County Extension agent for information on how to test your lawn.
     You may need to add lime, peat or compost as recommended.
  4.  Rake and smooth soil, removing rocks, roots and large clods. Keep the grade 1" below sidewalks, driveway, etc.

Turf Installation

  • Install your turf immediately upon delivery.  Turf is a living plant that requires ground contact and moisture to survive.
  • Begin installing turf along the longest, straight line, such as a driveway or sidewalk.
  • Butt and push edges and ends against each other tightly, without stretching.
  • Avoid gaps or overlaps.
  • Stagger the joints in each row in a brick like fashion.
  • Use a sharp utility knife to trim corners and ends.
  • On slopes, place turf pieces across the slope.

Watering Your Turf

  • Water your new lawn within 1/2 hour of installation.
  • Water daily - to the point of saturation - for the first two weeks.
  • After two weeks, begin less frequent and deeper watering.
  • Weather conditions will dictate the amount and frequency of watering.
  • Be certain that your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry or windy periods.
  • More water will be needed near buildings, where heat is reflected.
