Can you cut artificial grass with scissors?
Tools for cutting artificial turf can be very useful. The cut will be done on the back because there are no fibers and the cut is easier than perfect. For this, we can use large scissors, although the ideal is to use an industrial cutter, with the blades in proportion to the thickness of the turf.

How long should you wait before mowing new turf?
Your new lawn will probably need its first cut about 3 weeks after you laid your turf. To test if it’s ready, tug on the grass. If the turf lifts up – wait and try again in a few days-time.
What happens if you walk on new turf?
Is it possible to over water new turf?
Applying too much water can cause the soil to become saturated or soggy. If this condition persists for a couple of weeks in cool weather or for only a few days in hot weather, the grass will suffocate. Turf flooded by water cannot breathe, and turf must breathe to live.
How do you maintain new turf?
- Water regularly, never let the ground dry out.
- Keep off the grass until it has rooted in.
- Mow little and often once the grass is growing well.
- Top up soil nutrient levels to encourage strong root growth.
- Don’t allow fallen leaves or debris to accumulate on your new lawn.
