Watering is one the most important steps in ensuring your turf establishes well. Without being watered, your turf is likely to dry out and lose colour and strength. Did you know that just one hour's worth of careful watering immediately after laying the turf is worth seven hours later on? That shows just how important it is to keep your brand new turf watered.
By making sure that you use a sprinkler, rather than a hose pipe, you can help to ensure an even distribution of water across your turf and garden. This will mean that the health of your turf will be kept in check. However, if you find out that you have weak water pressure, or if there is the threat of a prolonged dry spell, you may wish to consider adding water retaining gel to the soil. The water retaining gel will reduce the need for watering by up to four times, by using crystals within the gel to hold on to large amounts of water.
This means that you are able to keep your lawn turf hydrated throughout the year, no matter what season and how much of a dry spell you may find yourself in.
