What are people saying about us?
“Excellent service from start to finish. Beautiful rolls of quality turf that were laid really easily…considering this was the first time I’ve laid a lawn with the help of my father. We were most impressed. Definitely recommend. From a gravel pit I now have a beautiful lawn.”

“Excellent all around experience. My job was a relatively small home garden revamp requiring 19 rolls of turf and one cubic metre of topsoil. Ordering by email was easy and response was quick. Good pricing so I didn’t look elsewhere. I also made a late change to the order that was no problem. Delivery on time and efficient. Quality of soil and turf was top notch and easy and robust to lay. Very pleased with the results.”
