    Turf Laying & Shaping

    While laying out the turf may be one of the easier parts of establishing your new lawn it takes care and experience to ensure the turf establishes well and looks neat and tidy. Every garden is different, the same is true of your lawn and this is where shaping comes in. Turf rolls and slabs are cut with straight edges and sharp corners which aren’t always going to fit into your space.

    Whether your lawn needs to be cut around trees and garden beds or you’re creating a visually interesting space your turf pieces will need to be cut to fit perfectly. As part of our service, we also include top dressing to ensure your new lawn will be level, fresh and green ready for you to enjoy in no time.
