Guidelines for planting Instant lawn:
- Ensure the area you will be laying the lawn has been cleared of all weeds, grass, stones, or cement and the soil has been loosened and leveled. Remember the lawn will take the exact level it is laid onto.
- Topsoil is recommended if the existing soil consists of clay, sand, or builders have damaged the topsoil from builder’s rubble.
- You can either apply compost (We recommend Farmyard organics) or you can apply 2.3.4 fertilizer to the soil before planting the lawn.
- Start by planting the sods furthest away from you so as not to damage the lawn which has been planted.
- Place the sod’s onto the soil and roll the sod out. Making sure not to pack them too tightly together. Try and stretch them as much as possible without breaking them apart. If there is a slight gap between the joining sods you can apply compost between them. Once the grass starts to grow, the sods will bind and grow together.
- Water, water, AND water. You should be able to see water soaking through the layer of topsoil if you lift the sod. When you walk on the lawn it should feel “squishy” beneath your feet.
- If you have access to a roller, roll your lawn otherwise you can use the back of a shovel to pat the grass down. The sods need to bind with the soil below.
