Watering new turf is crucial. Our compact range of watering tools will help you get started or help you build a better tool-shed. Grass is 85% water and it depends on that precious liquid for its very existence. In an established grass plant, the surface area of the roots is greater than the surface area of the leaves. But in freshly harvested turf a good 70% of the root mass is missing. Every day, a grass plant loses water through its leaves. That water is replaced by the roots which draw food and water from deep in the soil. Depending on the time of year, newly laid turf takes 2-4 weeks to regrow enough roots to be self-sufficient. Best practice says that you should water either first thing in the morning or late in the evening. The reason for this is that the air is cooler and the water is less likely to evaporate away
