If the individual strips move, your dream of a perfect lawn will soon be over. To avoid this, the newly laid turf must be well-secured. To ensure this, first roll the freshly laid turf with a water-filled lawn roller across the direction of laying. This avoids the turf strips shifting, and prevents any joints or overlaps from occurring in the future. Be careful when rolling! Only tread on securely laid areas! Then, the turf is rolled along the direction of laying.
To allow the new lawn to grow quickly and well, the new lawn must be watered sufficiently. Depending on the soil moisture, the lawn should be watered with approximately ten to 15 litres of water per square metre on the first day. The edges of the rolled turf are especially prone to drying, and must not be neglected when irrigating. Ideally, the soil should be kept moist down to the roots for the following 14 days. Once the grass reaches a height of about six to eight centimetres, which depending on weather conditions and watering may be achieved as soon as two weeks after laying, it is already time to cut the grass for the first time. But be careful! Do not cut down too low, but shorten the stalk only by about one third. After around two weeks, the new lawn can usually take a certain amount of load, and after a month, it is fully ready for long relaxing hours of sun on a radiant green lawn.
