Laying Turf should be done in early Autumn or spring...ours was done in september and i thought i would add pictures on how ours was done. Before my hubby started laying the turf all rubbish and any rooting's from tree's was totally removed and then raked level. Then he made a wooden level to hit the soil totally flat and level. Then the ground was watered at the night to make the dirt nice and fresh to bond with the turf. Then he started laying it but also got a blank of wood to make sure the turf was going down level and also using the wooden level on the joining of the turf. The final finish of the lawn after being watered slightly.
