Spring is a brilliant time of the year to establish a lush new buffalo lawn. Lawns are coming out of semi dormancy and are beginning to grow again. This means that new turf can send down roots much faster than in winter.
At this time of year, the weather is still fairly mild but is warming up slowly. As your new lawn is also becoming more established, it will be better able to cope with the increasing heat as summer arrives, and should be fully established by the onset of Summer.
Planting a new lawn in Spring also means the newly laid turf will need far less regular watering during its establishment.
Actually laying turf itself is not the most difficult job in the world (although depending on the size of the area, it can be very punishing on the knees and back!), but as with any garden work, the key to best results is in the planning and preparation.
If you prepare your site in this way, you will be giving your turf the best chance to thrive and provide you with a lush, green lawn for years to come!
