The turf should be soaked thoroughly over the first week of its life. As it becomes established and begins to ‘take’ watering should become less frequent. As a general rule, we suggest you water your lawn twice a week, depending on the season, weather and other factors.
As the turf establishes, we recommend that foot traffic be kept to a minimum for a few weeks. If laying your turf in summer, it will establish quicker than in the colder months. To check on the establishment of the lawn, simply lift a slab from the corner to see if it has ‘taken’.
