In warm weather the turf needs to be watered as soon as it is laid.

To check if you have provided enough water gently lift a corner of the turf and check that the turf is moist through to the soil.

Toadstools may appear on newly laid turf. This is due to the process of harvesting, laying and watering the lawn. They do not cause any damage to the turf. The best way to get rid of them is to mow the area.
Wait for 2 weeks before mowing your new lawn.
Use a high setting for the first cut and gradually reduce the height so as not to shock the turf.
Never mow more than a third of the length during any one cut.
As a guide mow once a week from the end of winter to autumn. You may want to cut it twice a week during warmer months of the year.
Don’t let the grass grow too long, as cutting it after this will damage the leaves.
