Brighten up Your Garden with our High Quality Turf
Replacing tired or weed-ridden grass can make a huge difference to a property and really brighten up the garden. We predominately offer two varieties of turf to our customers though other specialist varieties are available upon request.
The first is the Festival Turf which has an outstanding appearance and a strong green colour as well as being hardwearing, dense and easy to maintain. Due to its fine appearance yet practical nature this is a popular choice with our clients.
The second is a variety called Regency which is grown locally in Gloucestershire made from similar grass strains as the Festival. An excellent choice for the more budget job this too is good looking and hardwearing and is perfect for repairing lawns where it can be blended into any existing lawn successfully.
We give your turf a strong start to life by rotovating the ground if it is heavily compacted, followed by leveling and light compaction to create an even, level surface. We then dress the soil with a specific pre-turfing fertiliser, which ensures strong root growth in the first few months of being laid.
As an alternative to normal grass we also offer a Wildflower Turf which comes in ready to lay rolls and consists of a mixture of wild grasses and flowers which change over the summer months as well as year to year depending on the different nutrients available in the soil. Easy to maintain it only requires one cut a year at the end of the Autumn and will attract bees and wildlife to your garden.
Once the job is complete the care of your lawn will largely be in your hands and we have created some aftercare notes to help get you started.
Turf Aftercare & Information
- It is vital to keep your new turf well watered for at least the first two weeks after it has been laid. This is particularly crucial in the warmer summer months and in periods of no rain. For larger areas a sprinkler system can be used but make sure that all areas are watered equally and if you lift up a small section of turf, that the ground underneath it is wet.
- Avoid walking on the turf for the first two weeks to give it a chance to settle in. Use planks to walk on if you need to cross it but make sure you pick them up again after use.
- Depending on the season, the first cut is usually necessary after about two weeks. For this first cut just do a light trim then lower the cutting height over the next two cuts to reach your normal cutting height.
- We fertilise the ground with a pre-turfing fertiliser before laying your new turf and it is not advisable to fertilise again until another 6 months has passed at which point you can resume your normal feeding program.
- It is common to have mushroom growth appearing on your new lawn but this is nothing to be concerned about and they will disappear again once the lawn has been mown.
- Keeping on top of weed growth as they appear is the best method of maintaining a weed-free lawn. Ensure you remove the root when digging up any weeds.
- We offer a lawn mowing and maintenance service if you need assistance with looking after your new lawn.
