How to Store Turf

Jeff Fleming

Everyone knows what turf is, but few people know how best to store it. Depending on the type of turf that you have purchased, it can be difficult to keep alive during storage. However, many options can help preserve the life of your grass for a few days or weeks without any damage done. Turf requires specific conditions just like any other plant would if it were being stored away for a time before being replanted somewhere new. If you want to store your own turf for later use, here are some tips on what you'll need to do. Read on to discover more!

Keep the turf in the shade

You must store any turf away from direct sunlight. A shady area is the best place for storing your turf. An external shady spot such as an open field or garden would be ideal. If you have any trees in your garden that provide adequate shade, then you should use these areas for storage if possible. Just make sure that absolutely no part of the grass is exposed to sunlight at any time. The heat of the sun will quickly dry out and yellow the turf.

Stack the turf rolls in small piles

You should stack rolls of turf in small piles. This will help provide adequate airflow and humidity to the turf. Make sure not to stack them too high, however, as this can negatively affect the turf by decreasing the ventilation. Decreased ventilation can increase the rate at which the turf composts, causing it to rot.

Do not overwater the turf

Turf should be left as dry as possible to reduce the rate of decomposition. If you are concerned that the turf is completely drying out before you have time to lay it, you may wish to wet each roll down using a sponge. Make sure that you wet them down just enough so that they do not drip. Turf should be watered just enough so that it does not dry out completely while being stored. The last thing that you should do is to spray water on directly. Doing so could lead to the development of mould and fungus that can really harm your turf and reduce its life expectancy.

If you would like to find out more, you should contact a company which specialises in supplying rolls of turf. A member of the team will be happy to offer you further advice and information relating to turf and turf storage.
