There’s a misconception that turf should be installed on the warmer ground to get the best result. Also turf like Sir Walter DNA Certified cannot be laid in cool ground, which isn’t true as turf could be laid throughout the year.
Although the ideal seasons for installing turf might be spring, autumn and summer while the ground is relatively warmer, there’s benefit installing the turf in winter which we can’t ignore. Some of the benefits of installing new turf in winter are below:
One of the benefits of installing turf in winter is significantly lower water usage than other times. In winter, as the days are not hot as in summer to dry out your lawn, you won’t have to water your lawn like summer. While the new turf still needs water to establish, you can water your turf halver the amount.
Another benefit of installing turf in winter is it saves your maintenance time. You won’t have to spend time mowing your lawn like other times. When you install new turf in winter, the turf waits for the weather to warm up to establish and grow. Hence, if you notice your lawn not growing don’t worry it’s not dying. Your turf is just waiting for the warmer temperature to fully establish.
Finally, the last benefit of installing new turf in winter is that you can have a fully established lawn for summer. Therefore, why wait for spring to come and get started today.
Lay your new turf in winter and wait confidently for the fully established lawn in the coming warmer months. Don’t let this golden opportunity go. For more winter lawn care and tips, contact The Turfman today or call us on 0410752082.
