Damaged turf change


It can happen in a laid garden to have to replace some pieces of clods for different reasons. In this case we proceed by delimiting the clod which must be replaced and then using a well sharpened tool suitable for cutting the bounded clod. Once this is done the clod will be removed with hoes or pallets and the conditions will be created for levels of adequate size for laying a new clod. After that, as happens for a normal sod laying procedure, a rolling will be carried out and the area will be wet to prevent any drying out of the small rootlets belonging to the sod. In particular, within half an hour of laying, each sod should be moistened and the cracks that are created fill with a little sand and peat. Once the laying is finished, it is lightly rolled to join the clods to the ground below; then it is watered evenly and abundantly (at least 30 mm). For the next two weeks, the lawn needs to be watered abundantly every day to allow the roots to colonize the base soil. In the first few weeks an intense trampling must be avoided, especially after irrigation. While the first cut, which must not be too low, can take place after a week, to keep the grass thick. After two weeks, the substituted clods should no longer be raised, because the roots will push into the soil for at least 3-5 cm.
