Turf Preparation and Laying

There are three main stages for the process. The first stage is clearing the area for the turf including any weeds, existing grass and debris. The second stage is adding top soil to the area and raking this to create an even level. The final stage is either selecting to lay grass seed or instant turf. We work with a range of different grass types and will be happy to work with your needs and budget. After the lawn has been laid, we will discuss with you the upkeep required.
