We probably lay more turf in Maidstone, Hollingbourne, and Harrietsham gardens, and to a better standard, than any other local landscaping company.
If your existing lawn is tired looking, weedy, patchy or uneven, give us a call to see what we can do. Laying a new, level lawn using top quality turf will instantly transform your garden.
We only use the highest quality turf, which when combined with our professional ground preparation and turf laying service, will give you a vibrant, level lawn you can be really proud of.
The most popular turf we supply and lay is Sovereign Regal Turf, this is especially suited to domestic garden lawns. For sports ground applications such as football pitches, we tend to use Sovereign Xeris turf. This is ideal for open aspect ground, and has been developed to have a lower water requirement than most other turf. We can supply and lay any type of suitable turf you request, including turf from Sovereign, Rolawn, Spearhead, Paynes, Grassland turf and Wildflower turf.
Ground preparation is an essential part of turfing, to give your new lawn a great start whilst establishing, and also helping to maintain its long term health and vitality. With this in mind we have invested heavily in some amazing equipment to prepare the perfect laying surface. Our narrow access stone burier machine, for example, is a scaled down version of what commercial turf growers use to prepare the ideal seed bed for growing fine turf. We also have specialist machines for levelling and grading the lawn area, to give truly stunning results when the grass is laid.
We can install drainage systems prior to turfing if your site has issues with surface water. We also have a mole draining machine which can punch narrow drainage channels 75-100mm under your lawn, with the only surface disturbance being a narrow slit.
Our attention to detail in the ground preparation and laying of turf, along with our outstanding commitment to quality has led to us laying turf at many prestigious properties, including the pitch at Millwall FC’s New Den and Westminster School’s Vincent Square sports pitches.
We have built up an extensive working knowledge of turfing over the years, and as a result have become relied upon and trusted to deliver consistent quality and great value to both domestic and commercial clients, often working to tight deadlines and limited budgets.
Turfing in Maidstone, West Malling, Aylesford and Rochester areas:
Our turf laying process:
Every lawn is different, and we will assess the needs of your lawn during our site visit.
Typically, for a lawn not needing any special measures such as drainage, we will employ the following steps:
1) Strip any existing turf from lawn surface
Using our top quality turf cutting machines, we are able to strip the existing turf from your lawn surface. If your lawn is especially weedy we will offer the option of applying a degradable total herbicide a couple of weeks before re-turfing to kill off any vegetation growth. The stripped turf is then loaded into a skip if provided or bagged up and left neatly for disposal.
We can also use our stone-burier to shred and bury turf, stones and vegetation, saving on a large amount of waste disposal.
2) De-compact soil
Using either a rotovator, power box rake, stone-burier or vibrating sub-surface blades, we will break up the surface of the lawn area to improve root-take and drainage. This will also allow air and nutrients to penetrate the soil, improving growth.
3) Grade and firm soil, incorporating topsoil, sand or organic material if specified
This will either be done by hand or with our power box rake. It is important not to over-firm the lawn surface, and never use vibrating plate compactors as this will cause compaction, causing the new lawn to suffer. If large amounts of material are to be added, in cases of really poor existing soil, we will use our rotovator to thoroughly incorporate and dig this in to a depth of up to 200mm.
4) Apply pre-turf fertiliser
This balanced fertiliser is raked into the surface to provide an initial boost of nutrients for the new turf, promoting vigorous root growth.
5) Prepare the surface to a fine tilth
Raking in the fertiliser and loosening the soil surface, this gives a great tilth texture for the roots to grow through, and enables water to penetrate the soil.
6) Lay the turf
Working from large boards to avoid any footprints or compaction, we will lay high quality, cultivated lawn turf over the prepared lawn area, cutting edges and beds.
You will quickly have a stunning new lawn to be proud of, that will be the envy of everyone who sees it!
We will also give you plenty of tips and advice on looking after your new lawn, such as watering, mowing and feeding regimes.
