Why You Should Always Lay A New Lawn In The Autumn

If you're planning a landscaping project using cheap, quality turf, the best time of the year to lay the new turves is during the autumn.  Autumn was traditionally the preferred season for laying turf for plenty of good reasons.  Here's why you should always lay new grass during the autumn months.

Perfect temperatures

One of the primary reasons for laying new turf during the autumn is that the temperatures are perfect.  Freshly cut turf that is stored in rolls deteriorates quite quickly, especially in warm weather.  The cooler autumn temperatures mean that you can leave the turf rolled up for longer, without fear that the grass plants will quickly die.

From your own point of view, laying turf can be hard work and the pleasant autumn temperatures make this job much less onerous than the blistering summer heat or humidity of the early spring.

Stronger grass plants and better growth

Turf that is cut in the autumn has had the benefit of growing all through the summer, soaking up the sunshine and establishing strong roots and healthy leaves.  The long autumn days still allow the plants to use all the available sunshine, allowing them to continue growing and promoting quicker recovery from the stress of being transplanted.

Although the air may be cooler than during the summer, the soil is still warm.  This allows the turf to bed-in quickly and promotes healthy root growth.

Although you will still need to water your new turf frequently for a few weeks until it has become established, the autumn months tend to have regular rainfall, saving you time and effort.  In addition, the cooler air means that surface evaporation is not as much of a problem as it is during the spring and summer months.

Most gardens are used less during the autumn and winter months, meaning that your new grass will have plenty of time to become established before it has to withstand the heavier traffic of the spring and summer.

Something else to bear in mind is that many turf suppliers are inundated with orders during the spring and summer months, but they are generally much quieter in the autumn.  This means that you should find it much easier to get the quantity of cheap, quality turf that you require delivered to your preferred timescales.

In conclusion

If you're planning on laying a new lawn as part of a garden landscaping project, you might want to bear the above in mind during the planning stage.  For more information and advice on laying new turf, have a chat with your local supplier.
