Everyone wants a perfect lawn. What’s better than looking out your front door and seeing lush, green grass? With the right products, quality sand and topsoil and a little patience, you can learn how to grow a lawn easily.
Whether you start from seed or sod, it all comes down to proper planning and good soil.
Firstly, prepare your area and calculate the amount of topsoil and sand you may require. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will be happy to help. At McDaid’s, we have different grades and quality of topsoil and sand available, depending on your budget and your requirements.
Prepare your area:
Depending on the size of your garden, you may need to hire diggers, dumpers or rollers. Investing in the hire of machinery will, in the long-run, save you time and money and help you to grow a lawn easily. We can also provide you with all the plant and equipment you may need to complete your project.
Plant your seed or roll your turf:
Turf must be rolled out immediately in spring/summer and within 24 hours in the autumn/winter, therefore you should ensure the site is fully prepared before arranging for the turf to be delivered.
The ideal times to seed a lawn or overseed an existing lawn are spring and autumn, with germination taking 7 to 21 days depending on growing conditions.
