Really fun re-turfing project we took on in North London recently. First we dismantled and disposed of the old shed in the garden before lifting and removing the old turf. We then prepared the ground for the new turf by adding topsoil and nutrients to give it a good start and encourage rapid rooting. Sharp sand was also added to aid with drainage. We then watered the turf immediately which is especially important in such hot weather as we have been lucky to experience in the UK the past few weeks.
