Laying lawn turf

Firstly I must say that I am no gardener, hence wanting to turf the borders at the front of the house. I know you gardeners will be cringing.

They are 2 6ft by 2ft sections.

I have bought some lovely pottery pots to house my flowers once I work out what to put in them:rotfl: and then I will place them randomly.

The soil is very heavy clay.

Can someone give me step by step instructions on how to prepare, lay and treat the turf if you have time.

I will be most grateful:beer:
