Turf laid by gardener
I had new turf laid down over part of my garden on Friday ( old patio was removed) by a gardener. I commented on how different the two sections of lawn looked and he said this was because the old lawn was full of moss and advised something like Evergreen to darken the old lawn. Is this right or could he have bought turf as close as possible to my existing lawn type? The new lawn is very very dark green and the grass looks tightly packed, the old lawn grass type looks less coarse and a different shade of green (a light mid green)
Also the turf he laid now has very large gaps all around- up to two inches. It has been watered since being laid down- is this normal and what can be done to rectify it? I did think it wasn't butted together as I'd expect on Friday and he said it would be alright in a while, now I'm not so sure.
Thanks in advance if you've taken the time to read this and I appreciate any advice you can offer.
