First post so be gentle...
I have an area of 65m2 that i paid a gardener to lay turf. It needed
level quite abit so i thought i would pay a professional to do it. Got
some "premier turf". It cost £300 all in.
So anyway, after he laid it... i walked over the lawn to inspect it and
it had loads of lumps and bumps. It just didn't seem level. I asked him
about this and he just mumbled something about new turf doing that and
it was ok.
That night i walked over the turf for once last time to inspect the
bumps again. I lifted one roll of turf and it had a big rock underneath
it!! I havnt walked on it since to make sure it roots down ok.
So a week down the line and there are in places 2 inch gaps between some
of the turf rolls and some "dead" patches too.
I have been watering twice a day everyday. I also put lawn feed down to
help the process.
I complained to the gardener and he said i couldn't have been watering
it correctly!! He said he will come back in a week to look at it.
So my questions are-
1. When turf is freshly laid would you expect when you walk on it for it
to have lumps and bumps every so often?
2. How can he level it now that most of the turf has rooted down??
3. Any other comments/suggestions would be very much appreciated!!
