New lawn by plugs or runners?
I'm looking at laying lawn in my back yard cheaply and heard a little about using plugs or runners but am missing some information.Ã¯Â¿Â½
Is some able to provide advice or point me in the right direction for information?
I have 100 square meters to grass and am thinking of using kikuyu from a local turf farm.Ã¯Â¿Â½
If I cut the turf into plugs, how big should each plug be? (I don't want to cut them too small if it will kill the grass)
Or is burying runners better for kikuyu? If so, how do I go about breaking up the turf into runners?
I would prefer to use sir Walter buffalo but have been told it spreads very slowly from plugs and kikuyu would be better for this application.Ã¯Â¿Â½
Should I be adding fertiliser to the new top soil?
