Professionally laid turf doesn’t have to cost the earth! and unlike other products in your garden, once correctly laid and maintained its hard wearing properties will leave you with a beautiful looking lawn for many years to come.
The key to beautiful lawns can be achieved by simply following these gold rules.
- First consider the grade of turf that will be suitable for your intended use. If considering an ornamental lawn, it may be wise to reconsider if, you are thinking of starting a family or buying a family pet in the near future. A good all round hard wearing turf may be more suitable. Large overhanging trees, drainage pipes and other structures in the garden should be taken into consideration.
- How much time shall you have available to maintain your lawn. Turf is a group of tiny plants and therefore, the different grades of turf require different maintenance programs. So do not choose a turf that requires a high maintenance program if you have a busy life style, and your spare time is limited.
- Choose a professional to prepare your ground, ensuring all debris is removed, the soil is rotorvated and aerated. Adding quality screened top soil if required and a preturf fertiliser should also be considered. The ground should be raked completly level before working from planks laying the turf in a staggered brick like fashion ensuring the edges of the turf are closely pushed together but not over lapping.
