How to Care for a New Lawn

If you have recently had a new lawn laid then there are a few things to bear in mind to ensure that the investment in your property lasts well into the future. There is no reason why a newly laid lawn shouldn’t last a life time as long as you take good care of it during the early growth stages.


Whether your new lawn was laid using turf or grown from seed, here are few tips to remember after the lawn as been laid:
• You should need to water a new lawn only if there is no rain for several days after sowing or turfing; do so thoroughly, then leave it a few days before doing it again. You need to water a new lawn only until the grass is about 2.5cm (1 inch) tall, and turf no longer lifts up if you try to peel back a corner
• Upright weeds like groundsel will die out naturally as soon as you start mowing a new lawn regularly.
• Don’t use lawn weedkiller on newly sown lawns until they are over six months old. New turf can be treated as soon as it is properly rooted and starting to grow.
