Can I walk on my newly-laid grass turf?

Gazon

Yes, but it’s not recommended that you do so. Once the sod has been laid down, you need to copiously water the grass, which means the ground will be very wet.

Given the large amount of water in the soil, walking on the grass may cause it to become uneven.

You can walk on the grass if you have to, but it is advisable to wait a week before doing so to give the earth time to become compacted.
