I spent so much time on my veggie patch last year and just didn't see the spectacular results I was hoping for. This year I've been doing a lot more research to try and get my plants the right nutrients so I can actually get some fresh veggies this year. There is something so tasty about vegetables that are freshly picked from the garden, compared to something you buy in a supermarket and sits in a fridge. I'm improving how I plant them, how I fertilise them and hopefully I'll reap a bumper crop. Read along to see if I do!
A lush, green lawn is something to be enjoyed and admired during the summer months, but achieving this can be challenging if you have land that slopes. However, with a little know-how, it can be done. Here's how to successfully lay turf in a sloping garden.
What you'll need
Always buy top quality turf from a turf supplier. They will also provide you with specially prepared turf soil to provide a base for your new lawn. This is important as it contains all the necessary nutrients that your new turf will need to thrive.
This guide assumes that you have already prepared and levelled the ground on which you wish to lay your turf. It's best to avoid periods of very hot weather when laying new turf. The roots are vulnerable to dehydration at this stage and the grass will settle better if you pick a time of year when the weather is cooler and not as dry.
How to do it
Laying turf on a sloping site is tricky, but success can be achieved by following the guidelines above. For further advice on laying a lawn and maintaining it afterwards, have a chat with your turf supplier.
