Mild temperatures and sufficient rain offer ideal conditions for a green oasis of well-being in summer.

When it comes to designing your own garden, turf is a popular choice.

Compared to conventional sowing, the rolled turf has the advantage that it has already grown and thus provides a green oasis of well-being.

But when is the best time to lay turf in the garden?

The following applies here: Spring is ideal for this work.

Laying turf: Spring offers mild temperatures and sufficient rainfall

In spring, the temperatures are usually mild and the sun shines more often.

At the same time, however, there is still sufficient precipitation so that the turf gets enough moisture to strike well.

That's why the months of March, April and May are ideal for beautifying your garden with fresh turf.

Even if it seems tempting to lay the lawn in the summer, it should be remembered that the high temperatures can put an additional strain on the still fresh lawn.

In addition, freshly laid turf must be watered particularly well in summer.

Laying turf: step by step to a well-groomed green

Laying turf is not difficult, but it does require a little preparation and care.

However, the following steps make the job easy:

  • Preparing the soil:

    The soil should first be cleared of weeds, stones and roots.

    Then it is smoothed with a rake.

    In the spring, the soil is usually still sufficiently moist to make digging and leveling the soil easier.

    Anyone who lays a completely new lawn should apply high-quality soil or topsoil, about 15 to 20 centimeters deep.

  • Measure and cut:

    The turf is cut to the size of the ground and laid out.

    Work staggered so that no "seams" are visible later.

  • Laying:

    The turf is rolled out piece by piece and carefully pressed down with a ground roller so that it comes into contact with the ground.

  • Irrigation:

    After laying, the turf should be thoroughly watered for two weeks to encourage growth.

    The lawn should always be kept moist during this time.

  • Care:

    In the first few weeks, the turf should be watered and mowed regularly to form a dense turf.

    Take care of the lawn at first.

    After about four weeks he is fully resilient.

  • With these simple steps, anyone can lay their own turf and enjoy a green and manicured lawn.

    The rolled turf can thus develop optimally until summer and, in the best case, already form a green oasis.
