We want our turf supplies to be as fresh as possible, so all turf is cut to order the day before your scheduled delivery.

When people ask about the quality of our turf we refer them to customers we have supplied for nearly forty years. We have expanded the business based on word-of-mouth recommendations and regular, repeat orders. We think our turf is great. Just ask our customers!

We cut our rolls of turf to make laying lawns easier for you. Each roll will cover 1m² and they are delivered in strips that are approximately 250cm long by 40cm wide.

Small batches of turf can be handballed, but most orders will be delivered on a pallet. The driver will drop the load using a tail lift and pallet truck. Please ensure you have a suitable level surface available ahead of delivery.

Our turf is grown on a heavy loam soil base. This gives the turf a great start and it is a good blend to allow the turf to adapt on different soil surfaces when laid by customers.

We deal in feet and inches or metres and centimetres. The easiest way to work out the area of turf required is to divide the space into shapes – squares, oblongs and triangles. Use basic maths to calculate each section, then add them up to give an overall area in square metres or feet. If in doubt, we can help you to convert the measurements.

Turf can be laid all year round in theory, unless the ground is too hard to cut. During the winter it is also harder to prepare the soil ahead of laying. We recommend any time between early Spring and late Autumn, but be aware that different times of the year will require different levels of watering to establish the turf’s root system.

Your turf will establish itself at different rates across the year. As a rough guide, turf beds in after two to three weeks. Ensure that the turf is regularly watered and is not allowed to dry out.

Turf should be allowed to properly root before its first cut. To check if it’s ready for mowing, lift the corners of a piece of the turf and see how established the roots are. Well rooted turf should be hard to lift.

We are here to help. If you have any queries about turf, soil or machinery, just give us a call. If we can’t answer you immediately, we’ll get the information needed and call you back.
