Preparing to lay a new lawn all begins and ends with soil preparation, lets face it - rolling out the new turf is the easy part, however, a new lawn will only ever be as good as the soil on which it is laid, and the preparation which goes into ensuring a quality groundwork for the years to follow.

Soil preparation is king when it comes to laying new lawns, for it is in the soil that will determine so much of the quality of our lawns over the decades, and it is also within the soil than we must properly lay the foundations for an even lawn surface.

This lawn care video covers all the basics of how to lay a new lawn, and while the video does show heavy equipment in the preparation work, this is only for demonstration purposes and shows all the same foundation work for laying any new lawn in any home garden with ease.
