It allows us to get a turf without the need to sow it. There are various types, before buying it, therefore, it is good to clarify your ideas and, if we want a particularly tidy and beautiful garden, better a English lawn in rolls.
Rolled lawn: soil preparation
Sure to create a lawn from scratch it requires a good skill, as well as a lot of patience and a good knowledge of agricultural practices, but also laying the clods is not trivial. It is necessary to start working the soil well in advance, with digging and basic fertilization with mature manure. Let us not be under the illusion, therefore, that it is like placing a carpet on the floor just bought at IKEA: the preparation is quite difficult, much more than the implementation.
Rolled lawn: how to lay

Once the rolling lawn, we can let it take root and grow until the grass is about ten centimeters high, at which point it is better to cut.
