I am planning to lay new turf next spring. In the meantime can someone please tell me what I need to do to prepare the ground (where I am laying the turf) over the winter time.

Can anyone recommend any particular grass type. The soil is heavy clay.


  • Bea,

    Do you get standing water on this area, or is it very soggy over the autumn and winter months?

    No standing water but the area is west facing and partially shaded

  • Bea, if you search on the RHS website you will find a comprehensive guide to lawn turfing. Good luck and don't skimp on the quality of the turf - there is some rubbish around.
