Turfing and Planting London

A well maintained lawn can be the center piece of any garden.  Lawns can have multiple uses, as space for children to play in, alfresco dining and relaxing.  All too often lawns are neglected but with just a little attention your lawn can be as beautiful as the day it was first laid.  It should be remembered that a lawn is constantly in a state of change, responding to many external influences, such as; the weather, soil conditions, watering, mowing, feeding and other environmental factors.

We offer a turfing service where we can lay a new lawn for you.  This can also include border planting and general garden planting.  Alternatively, we can maintain your existing lawn with our  lawn care service, which includes moss removal, aeration, scarifying and re-seeding where required.

Turfing services in London

Before we start turfing a lawn we need to prepare the ground which includes removing weeds, levelling and adding top soil.  We use an economic top soil conforms to British Standards BS 3882:2007.  We select the best turf to suit your soil, desired finish and your budget.  Our expert turf layers ensure they acheive the best results with tried and tested techniques.  Newly laid turf must be watered within ½ an hour of installation which we will do for you.

It’s important that new turf has a really good soaking to penetrate the turf and seep into the soil below.  We’ll give you clear instructions on further watering if you wish to continue to do this for yourself.  If you are a business or have a large area which has been turfed, you may require us to do this on your behalf.  Turf takes areound 4 weeks to become established so needs careful attention until that time.

Once your lawn is established it may require further care which we can provide;

  • Feeding, weed and moss killing fertiliser
  • Seeding and other lawn repairs and replacement
  • Scarifying (Thatch removal), aeration and top dressing

Lawns will often have borders which require plants to beautify the borders. We can provide you with planting designs and a planting service, which takes into account your budget, planting colour preferences, light and shade and the overall effect you are looking for. If necessary we will fertilise and improve the soil in your flower beds to ensure, that new plants will grow to be healthy and flower as they should.
