    Why tell us to buy gravel but not mention when we need to use it?

    All you need is to defeat the zombies and beat the level, you’ll get more lawn space and you can use your sunshine to plant your plants.

    Only one critical thing to remember when laying turf, "green side up"!!!!!

  20. jason antigua on November 3, 2020 at 6:12 pm

    There’s a lot of clay in my garden,what advice could you give me? Thanks

  21. Brian Wood on November 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Surely you water the area first? dont you

  22. Beasts on November 3, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    How long does it need to be watered for everyday? I hear some people say 10min and others 5min. It’s for 20m2.

    This is awesome video. Very well explained from start to finish.

  26. framedoc1 on November 3, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    I liked your video as it confirmed most of my ideas on how I will proceed. One thing I would like to mention is that you did "brick" your sods but you didn’t actually make mention that this is what should be done. By "bricking" I mean overlapping the sods as though you were laying bricks in a wall. Overall well done though….hope my DIY turf project comes out as good as yours πŸ™‚

  27. Mishthy Aggarwal on November 3, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Is it real grass

  28. Lets Play on November 3, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    My backyard is very dusty. Any way I can fix it and grow grass

  29. Jenny*hugelibrarys on November 3, 2020 at 6:25 pm

  30. Ionut Dragomir on November 3, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    2020 in quarantine here in UK …its time to sort out the garden πŸ˜‰

  31. Jack Burton on November 3, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Brilliant and very informative πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

  32. Donny Deer on November 3, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    Good video. If the ends of the rolls of turf are not square, overlap one roll end onto another by about 2 inches. Then cut through both mats of turf with a long knife. Throw away the trimmed ends and you should have two straight edges to join together.
