Fill the join with Lawn & Turf Dressing and water well.


Aerating the lawn in heavily compacted areas or areas prone to flooding or moss growth will allow air and water to penetrate and revive the lawn. Using a fork or a hollow tine aerator, work over the area to introduce holes into surface of the turf.

Use a brush to fill in the holes and sweep up the excess.

Turf laying

Before laying turf ensure that the surface is completely flat, use Westland Lawn & Turf Dressing to fill in all hollows and depressions by using the back of a rake or a straight edge of a piece of wood. After laying turf, brush 1-2 litres per sq.m into the surface of the new turf, paying special attention to the joins. After dressing, keep the new turf watered well until the joins are no longer visible.

Aftercare for your lawn
