Laying turf is the best way to obtain instant lawn in your garden or outdoor space. Our landscapers use only topquality turf that has been selected and grown with care. We can supply various grades and types of turf and we will lay the one that is most suited to your specific environment.
The first step in the process is preparation of the ground. Our landscape gardeners know that the soil must be prepared correctly or even the hardiest, healthiest lawn will not grow. The first step is to remove all weeds in the area.
The soil is dug to a depth of 8 to 10 inches. Once the soil is dug over and loosened, our landscapers dig well-rotted organic matter as this helps to hold the moisture in the soil. The freshly turned and composted soil is then preferably left for several days or even a couple of weeks if time and circumstances allow.
Finally, if weeds have popped up again, they are removed. Fertiliser is spread across the prepared soil and raked in.
Laying the turf
Our skilled and highly experienced landscapers know exactly how to lay turf. This means that the area to be grassed won’t be left with bald patches, indentations where is has been walked on or gaps. It will, though, be level and well tamped down.
Our turf laying team will apply top dressing (a mixture of compost and sand or soil). This is worked carefully into the joins and spread using a rake. This not only creates a seamless lawn but it boosts growth. You will also receive invaluable advice on how to care for your new lawn.
