1. Laying turf: Turf can be laid during winter, but avoid doing this in periods of extreme cold and frost; it may become impossible to prepare the underlying soil properly.

2. Picking up leaves: In mild conditions any remaining fallen leaves should be removed because they block out the light, killing the lawn. Leaves can be sucked up with a mower or raked up and added to the compost heap.

3. Start digging: During mild spells in winter, dig up areas that are going to become lawn in preparation for laying the turf in spring.
