We provide turf to a number of local authorities for a wide range of uses. For example general maintenance at Wardown Park, (Luton), repairing a bowls green in Finedon (Wellingborough), repair work in the walled garden at Luton Hoo.
We provided 2,000 metres squared of turf for a new children’s play research and resource centre within the historic gardens of Shuttleworth. This was a joint venture between the Bedfordshire Playing Fields Association, the Shuttleworth Trust and Mid-Bedfordshire District Council.
Depending on the project you are doing depends on the type of turf you require. It is important that you choose the right turf for your needs. We have given a brief overview of four different types of turf below but if you require a full breakdown of the seed mixes then look on the home page under ‘products’.
Our most popular turf is suitable for general lawn use and amenity landscaping. It has a medium texture and will root quickly once laid. The turf will keep its colour all year round and the inclusion of ryegrass makes it extremely hard wearing, so its perfect for family lawns used by children.
New shade tolerant turf is a high quality turf which is ideal for gardens, recreational areas and shaded landscapes and lawns. It’s a strong, hard wearing, soft textured turf which is grown for 18 months before harvesting. It’s also deep rooting and tolerates shade and wet or dry conditions. This turf has an outstanding visual appearance which retains its vibrancy even in hot conditions when maintained correctly.
This greens turf produced primarily for golf courses, however in some situations this type of turf can be used in ornamental lawns and prestigious landscaping projects. Again it is only suitable for experienced gardeners who are able to give it the specialist attention it needs to thrive.
