Turf is a great way to create an “instant” lawn. However, like many jobs, it is the preparation that is key to making sure that your new lawn is sustainable. It is easy to forget that turf is simply a roll of very young, small and delicate grass plants that have had their roots cut off, been transported (often) a long way in a hot lorry and are about to be put on top of a soil that is probably very different to what it is used too!
Often after hard landscaping activities have been carried out, builders have a habit of leaving the levels on lawns different to those of the completed feature.
Not only is this not very aesthetic but it makes lawn maintenance operations such a mowing much more difficult.
It’s a simple operation carried out by Perfect Ground Solutions to repair the lawn levels and make sure the the garden becomes much more pleasing to the eye and easier to manage.
In this case, we have simply brought in a few tonnes of Grade 1 Topsoil and re-leveled the lawn to match the hard landscaping.
We have over-seeded the new soil with the right choice of grass varieties to make sure that in a very short time, the edges of the newer area will blend with the existing lawn.
A new lawn has been installed adjacent to a new-build property in North Hertfordshire.
Perfect Ground Solutions needed to move quickly to make sure we were able to take advantage of the forecast rain the following week. This was not an irrigated lawn, so we run the risk of poor germination and plant death if the surface dried out in the warmer days of May.
This project involved the levelling of the existing area, importing a few lorry loads of grade one top soil from British Sugar – in my opinion one of the best and most consistent top soils available.
Perfect Ground Solutions constructs all types and sizes of lawns to create the perfect outdoor space for your home, often working alongside landscapers or garden designers.
We renovate existing lawns wherever we can, but sometimes lawns move locations or a new lawn is required, therefore we are able to provide advice on all aspects of lawn construction and renovation.
