WHEN SHOULD I FIRST MOW MY TURF?

 

This will vary depending on when the turf has been laid and how active the turf still is. As a general rule of thumb, in spring and summer you can mow your lawn 7-10 days after laying. The best way to check if your turf is ready to be cut is to see how well it has rooted. Try turning a corner of the turf over and if the roots are starting to go down - if it is well anchored then it is ready to cut. The first cut should be a little higher than normal so as not to shock the turf but, after this, a normal cutting height can be resumed.

 

SHOULD I FEED MY TURF?

 

You would not like it if we did not feed you so you should feed your turf! You should feed your lawn in the summer and autumn and there are lots of good lawn feeds out there to choose from.

WHAT'S IN LAWN FEED?

 

Most lawn feeds are high in nitrogeon - this makes the lawn look green and grow well. Autumn lawn feed will be higher in potash - this helps roots establish and beds it down for the winter.
