We’ve already prepared the area with some topsoil and some wetting agent to hold the moisture underneath the turf. There is sandy soil in this area so there’s really good drainage. If you have clay soil, dig down 100 to 150mm and add sandy loam and gypsum to improve the drainage. Use the rake to spread the topsoil evenly. Level it out with the soil spreader, which runs bars over the soil to give a really fine grading on the top.
Spread the lawn builder or startup fertiliser. Start in one corner and work your way back for even coverage. Use the hose to wet it down and create a moist surface for the turf.
