Start laying rolls of turf preferably along a straight side in a row and in a brick like fashion so that joints are staggered, but closely end to end. Ensure rolls are close side by side, but not overlapping. Avoid leaving gaps between rolls in hope that they will grow together. A light rolling with a medium weight lawn roller is advisable to ensure the under side of the turf comes into contact with the soil.
Immediately after laying the turf, start watering. It is important to give the turf a really good soaking. The turf must be kept well watered for the first couple of weeks. Once the lawn is established, water occasionally - mainly during dry periods.
Buffalo and Zoysia: Start mowing after 21 days from laying during spring or summer, or 4 weeks during autumn or winter.
Be careful not to set your mower too low, reduce height gradually or you may scalp you lawn.
