I can install your new turf or maintain existing lawns.
Here is a selection of new lawns I have created. Click images to enlarge them.
A new lawn is laid out after the soil is carefully prepared and levelled.
The ground is dug over and stones removed prior to levelling. Once I’m happy with
the preparations, laying the turf is straight forward.
Circular lawn with mowing strip
A circular lawn was created as part of the overall design. The new lawn is bordered
with block paving stones to act as a mowing strip.
Meadow Mat (Speciality turf)
In this garden we were asked to create a Meadow! My first thought was to grow a meadow
from seed. After researching garden meadows I discovered a product called Meadow
Meadow Mat is a specially grown turf. It contains around 35 verities of wild grasses
Artificial Grass (Astro Turf)
In this garden we were asked to lay artificial turf. The mats were purchased in advance
by our customer. We were asked to prepare the area and lay the mats. First we applied
weed killer to control some deep rooted weeds such as Dock and Dandelion.
Then the hard-core was compacted and the retaining edges were installed. Next sharp
sand was spread out level with a length of strong timber, before being compacted
and levelled again.
The mats are then carried into position and glued together with a special tape and
adhesive. Once all the mats are down and trimmed the outer edges are pinned and weighted
down with kiln dry sand.
