How do you look after newly laid turf in the winter?
Regarding this, can you lay new turf in winter?
Yes you can. The winter is often one of the best times of the year to lay your turf as the turf can settle, root and establish before the summer months.
Beside above, can you lay turf any time of year? Turf is best laid in mid-autumn, but can be laid any time between mid-autumn and late winter whenever the soil is not too wet or frosty. In spring and autumn little mowing is needed so newly-laid turf can be left relatively undisturbed for several weeks.
Similarly one may ask, how often do you water new turf in winter?
Winter turf maintenance Once the lawn is laid, you need to water it daily, so it doesn't dry out – this is as important in winter as it is in summer. Water the turf in the early morning or evening, just as in summer time. One way to gauge how much water is enough is to put an empty container on the lawn as you water.
Will frost damage newly laid turf?
Frost will not normally damage turf. The fact that turf is unaffected by frozen conditions means even if your turf roll freezes it will keep for days or even weeks and once the frost has lifted can be laid as normal on to thawed ground.
