Before there were 50 shades of Grey, there were 40 shades of green. Ireland has always been home to rolling green hills and pristine landscapes everywhere you look. However, over the past months we have only been able to look as far as the front garden and see a DIY project. For many, recent restrictions have allowed them to take time and embrace a feeling of pride of place with home improvements. Summerhill Lawns are doing their best to help by providing easy to install grass rolls to make your garden a relaxing and beautiful place to be.
The whole country has a new-found appreciation for outdoor environments and placed a new value on bringing their gardens to life. Summerhill Lawns have always appreciated the simplicity and benefits of our green spaces and have championed these throughout our 15 year history. Fortunately, this history has given us the chance to prepare and develop the easiest way for you to create the garden you have always imagined.
We had the good fortune of perfecting our craft on GAA pitches around the country and even at Aras an Uachtaran. We are happy to share with you the tricks of the trade when it comes to the perfect garden and how lawn rolls can save you so much hassle.
First… Why Grass in a Roll?
It might be obvious but grass rolls are specially grown grass fields cut into smaller sections, rolled up and prepared to be installed as a garden. Grass rolls are also called sod of turf or turfgrass. The most similar comparison is a carpet roll where you can buy your carpet and roll it out in the room you want. Just as you choose your designs for your house, turf rolls allow you to roll out your ideal garden.
Traditionally, Irish gardens have used seeds. However, grass turf takes away so many of the issues previously experienced with seeds. Constant maintenance, watering, weeding, seed washing away in the rain and having to reseed the bald patches all lengthen the long time to having a presentable garden.
What are the benefits of roll out grass?
Getting turf grass rolls from a specialized farmer where it has been allowed to root properly with the right fertilizers and soil helps you get your lawn in order quickly in the exact way you want it. Although spring, summer and autumn are ideal for laying a garden, grass rolls can be laid anytime of the year. While seed can get blown or washed away, sod is a touch more reliable and considerably more forgiving. Having already grown a base of roots, sod also takes to the ground quickly and is ideal for sloped or eroded gardens.
Those are just a few of the advantages for opting for rolls of grass over the use of seeds but the benefits of having a lawn extend way beyond those.
In fact, lawns are responsible for a host of amazing and unusual perks. Having a lawn improves the quality of soil, reduces erosion and provides better rain water absorption for your garden. Furthermore, grassy surfaces also absorb heat in high temperatures and release this throughout the evening to help regulate our climate. Hence why it is so comfortable to walk on grass on a hot day, unlike sand.
Having a garden has been proven to make the biggest increase in the resale value of a person’s home adding as much as 20%. Beyond the climate and sales values, your lawn provides so many mental and physical health benefits.
The average 240 square metre lawn actually converts enough carbon dioxide to oxygen for a family of 4. Lawns lead to decreased stress reduced blood pressure, and improved family connection, which all rank amongst some of the best benefits you could ask for.

How do I lay my grass in a roll?
Once you have made the decision to plant grass rolls and create your perfect garden, there are some preparatory steps that will help ensure you have a beautiful lawn to gaze upon in no time.
1. Remove the existing lawn and weeds
About 10 days before you plan to lay the grass rolls, you should spray the ground with a complete weed controller. Any local garden store or cooperative should have exactly what you need. The alternative option, which is more labour intensive, is to cut under the grass and weeds to remove the existing sod.
2. Prepare the soil for turfgrass
Soil needs to be turned over to a depth of 15cm before laying sod. This can easily be done with a hired rotavator or by digging over the area.
You will then need to simply rake the ground over as much as needed to produce a smooth surface. It also helps to roll out the ground after raking or firm it up by foot. The finished article should be firm but not compacted.
Anyone who has ever lived in the countryside is familiar with fertiliser. However, this is not the offensive smelling kind as the pre-turf fertilizer you are looking for is not direct from the cow. We recommend speaking with one of our team for the best advice specific to your garden.
You will need to measure your lawn as accurately as possible in square metres. Turf is supplied by the square yard which equates to 0.836 metres. If you are looking for delivery, it is best to give us as much notice as possible. All turf should be laid within 48 hours of delivery to get the best results.
6. Laying the Turf Grass
Find the longest straight line in your garden. This is where you should lay the first rolls of sod from end to end pushing the edges together without stretching the turf. Once the first line is done, you can continue in line with this. Stagger your rolls so that you do not end up with any edges running across two lines. When you get to the perimeter, use a sharp blade to cut the length needed. We advise against using any offcuts as they may wilt. Avoid walking on freshly laid sods without placing a board between you and the ground.
7. Watering the turf
Make sure to give the turf a full soaking and check that the water has seeped through to the soil. Repeat this twice daily or as the weather dictates. If the grass shows any sign of drying out, water it immediately and frequently.
Only mow the lawn once it has fully rooted. You can check by lifting the corner of the sod to see if it has attached itself to the soil. Once it has attached fully, you are free to mow on a high setting.
9. Lawn Feeding
Lawns that have been fertilised do not require feeding for the first six weeks.
Having experienced the confinements of the past few months, the whole country has never valued their gardens so highly. Various housework and DIY projects have given people a lift and the garden has been the ultimate for all of those benefits. Creating a new garden is the perfect activity to come out of this summer with a major sense of achievement.
The mental benefits of being outside tending to your new garden and giving your space the touch up you have always wanted cannot be understated. It is an easy project to start with a simple call or perusing the grass roll options as your first steps. By all means talk it through with one of our Summerhill Lawns staff to help guide the process.
