Essential to prevent damage to newly laid turf when moving hose etc.
We recommend using Harrdowden Turf Laying Boards when laying new turf. This provides an even distribution of weight as well as preventing footprints in the delicate turf. The turf laying board also acts as a straight edge for the next row of turf, this helps to provide a professional and accurate finish when laying turf.
Our turf laying boards come in a set of two. This means that while you are moving a laying board, you are able to stand on the other laying board. Each turf board is 4 foot long, giving the perfect amount of space to work on laying the new turf. The turf board being 4 foot long also means it is relatively light for picking up.
Below we have provided a list of instruction on how we recommend using the turf laying boards.
When the first row of turf has been laid, place the plank on top of the laid turf.
Stand on the laying board to prevent any damage to the freshly layed turf. Work from the board.
When you need to move, use the second board by placing it on the turf and move across to the second board.
The Turf Laying Board will do three jobs:
1. Act as a straight edge for your next row.
2. Avoid indentations made by walking on the newly laid turf.
3. Evenly distribute the compression weight for good soil to turf contact.
