We are turf growers too!
Whilst loading a customer’s car with some of our turf this morning we felt compelled to give an up-to-date picture of just how good it is looking at the moment!
It is probably a mixture of wet and warm weather, which combined with our timely regular mowing and feeding has resulted in the grass becoming as lush and green as ever. We grow lawn turf on our own fields here at Lymefield farm in Broadbottom. As well as being blessed with excellent soil, we also put a lot of nutrients back into the ground during preparation.
Every roll is harvested and then stacked by our own hands, so we are extremely strict on quality. The turf is sold in the garden centre which means that you can order as much or as little turf as you like. If you are a landscaper requiring hundreds of yards of turf each week, we can happily meet this demand. Equally, if you only need 1 roll for some patching that is fine too! Alongside the turf, we also sell topsoil by the tonne, or in small bags. We like to think that we have learned a thing or two about growing turf by now! So if we can offer any advice, whether you are laying a completely new lawn or just looking to improve an existing one, please feel free to give us a call. Here is a guide to laying turf which may answer any questions you have before needing to get in touch.
Delivery throughout Manchester, Cheshire, and Derbyshire
We lift all of our turf to order so that it is as fresh as possible. Simply drop by the shop or give us a call on 01457 764686 to order. If it is a small amount, you can collect this yourself, or if delivery is required we can also arrange that for you. We deliver 6 days a week Monday to Saturday but please get in touch to find out about times and deliveries to specific areas.
In our opinion there can be few better times to lay turf than right now, in early September. The two biggest enemies of new turf are frozen winter conditions which make the ground solid, or scorching summer sun which will dry the turf out too quickly. Both are also horrible to have to work in. At this time of year, we have neither of these factors. The weather has cooled and there is enough rain to aid you with keeping the turf watered for the first couple of weeks after it has been laid. Equally, there is enough time for the lawn to establish its roots firmly before winter takes hold.
