Turf laying really is our speciality, and we have a great reputation as a premier turfing company in the Maidstone areas.
We probably lay more turf in the Malling, Maidstone & Medway areas, 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 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.
Using our top grade turf cutter, we can strip your existing turf at various depths from 15-75mm. We can also cut out areas to be used as beds in existing lawns.
Topsoil and soil preparation
We will look at the structure of your existing soil for compaction, drainage issues or poor nutrient value, to see why your original lawn is failing. We can apply different soil improvers, sand and topsoil if needed to address these issues.
We can also import new topsoil to your lawn to change levels.
We are seeing more and more waterlogged lawns in the past few years, partly due to rising water tables, and in urban areas with so much paved area, surface run-off into lawn areas. We have had great success raising the lawn area with separate substrate layers, and in less serious issues mole-ploughing or aerating the lawn and adding sand or grit. If there is a suitable soak-away area available we can run underground land drain pipes topped with gravel, in a permeable membrane to take the water away from the lawn area. We can advise you of suitable options during our initial site visit.
Once any underlying issues have been resolved, the lawn surface prepared and levelled, we will then lay the turf. We only use the finest quality turf, from highly respected producers, so that you can be sure of a beautiful, resilient lawn that you can be proud of.
If you already have the ground prepared, we will be more than happy to supply and lay the turf, giving you the reassurance that your new lawn has been laid by professionals.
We also offer sports ground turfing, including patch repairs, for example worn goalmouths and
high traffic areas.
