Laying Turf Well… Laying Turf Badly…

Yep – you can really stuff it up if you don’t know what you are doing! As with all jobs of this kind preparation is everything – after that its ‘green side up’… or so you’d think… But we have seen jobs where the landscaper obviously under-ordered on turf and just left a 100mm strip down the side of the yard. Or this one where rather than butting the edges up hard he just filled the gaps with soil. ¬† The turf will grow across, but its not what you want to see. A good lawn should be fit for […]

Retic and Turf Installation in Eglinton

So this is where it begins… a blank canvas they call it… I quoted this job today for backyard reticulation, removal of sand and dirt and supply spread of lawn mix, followed by 63m of Sir Walter Buffalo. This yard isn’t in bad shape as the sand isn’t piled too high, but we will still need to remove quite a bit before spreading 40ml of lawn mix. Once I have finished it on Thursday I’ll post some pics of the end result
