As Spring arrives many of you, like us, will be thinking about preparing your garden for the summer months. Now is an ideal time to purchase some of our top quality turf to patch or re-lay your lawn or even create a new one!
Our fresh turf will be delivered to your door and we would advise that you lay it as soon as possible, preferably within 24 hours. Please bear this in mind when ordering.
It is imperative that you prepare the ground for the turf to be laid ensuring the ground is clear of anything that might prevent the turf from bedding in properly. The ground should be cleared of all existing plant growth i.e. weeds, any tree stumps or roots, old bushes etc, and also any rubble.Â Any existing lawn that is beyond repair should be removed completely as trying to turf over an existing lawn will only create problems for you.
Similarly it’s crucial to destroy all perennial weeds and ensure the chances of them returning are minimised as much as possible. Following these tips will help protect your turf and allow it to flourish once laid. When laying your turf it is important to use a herringbone pattern ie like brick work.
It goes without saying that newly laid turf requires regular watering (unless it is being laid in very wet conditions) and we recommend at least 5cm growth before you mow for the first time.
Now is also the time to order your composts, top soils, mulches and other gardening products as you prepare your veggie beds, tubs & containers. Why not order composts to improve your existing soil? Choose from our green waste compost, mushroom compost or bark chip mulch.
