Laying Turf in Winter - Winter Gardening

 Laying turf in Winter

Q: Can you lay turf in the winter?


In fact, winter is a great time to lay turf!

  • No watering needed

  • Established ready for the spring

  • Easier to keep off it

  • Turf will last for up to 1 week!


Fresh Turf harvest turf throughout the winter and some of our biggest orders are taken between Novemer and February due to the advantages of out of season turfing. November and February are usually great months to lay turf but it can be laid throughout December and January. Only the heaviests of frosts will stop us cutting.

Winter is a great time to be laying turf. People talk of frosts harming turf but healthy turf is rarely damaged by frost and any damage caused by frost is generaly short term.

Turf will take up to 5 weeks to establish but as long as you keep off the lawn in this time, there will be no detrimental affect to the turf.

Fresh Turf are suppliers of high quality turf for private and trade customers throughout the UK. We offer this service all year round and we actually sell almost as much turf in winter as we do in summer. With demand for winter landscaping projects and out of season maintenance such as caravan parks increasing each year, we have equipped the Turf farm with the necessary machinery to maintain and harvest our turf in all weathers throughout the winter. We are occasionally stopped in our tracks by heavy frosts or snow but due to our milder climate in the South West, these conditions affect us far less than other parts of the country.
