Can you fit your own carpets without experience?

Would you recommend carpet fitting as a diy project? I have never done it before but I thought with lockdown I might have a go. Am I best to wait and get a professional in?

"Ideally wait for a tradesman, carpet needs to be stretched using the correct tools. you dont want to cut it short especially if you dont have a stretcher."
