A hot weather warning
 
We put so much effort into growing excellent turf, and our customers put so much into laying it, that the last thing we want is for people to lay turf that is doomed to fail.
 
So, if the daytime temperature is consistently over 20◦ and the humidity is high, the thousands of little grass plants in the turf roll (there could be up to 850 plants per square foot) will struggle to establish and flourish. It will be best to wait until things change to lay the turf, for example a fall in temperature is predicted or rain is promised. (Of course, established turf will bounce back from even prolonged periods of heat and drought and look as lovely as ever.)
 
Follow our advice and your new turf should do well and add real value to your garden or landscape. Ignore it and all your hard work could be for nothing.
