I just wanted to make a couple of notes here as some of you may have queries about when there is rain on either newly installed or established turf.
It is important to set up your lawn area to drain before laying new turf. There is usually no problems with excessive rain on your turf. If you are finding that there is a lot of rain on you turf, you will not need to water it until it starts to dry out again. The best way to check this for newly installed turf is to push your finger down between the joins to see whether it is moist or dry. Rain will not usually cause any harm to your turf.
