How to lay the perfect lawn, by Suffolk Garden Works

Ever wondered how to re turf your lawn? Here's how Suffolk Garden Works do it!

1. Initial meeting

We would advise you as to whether re turfing the lawn is necessary, or if the existing lawn could be saved.

The existing turf level will be discussed i.e. is it possible to reduce or eliminate the slope in the garden if there is one?

We will measure up so that we can provide you with your...

2. Free quotation

You will be sent a detailed quote about the work required for turf laying by Suffolk Garden Works

Lawns can be laid all year round, so should you decide that Suffolk Garden Works will be your chosen turf layers, your new lawn will not be far away!

Why not get in touch regarding a quote? They are free and no hassle so you can start planning your garden projects right away.

3. Our process

We are very conscious of not making a mess of your garden whilst completing a re turfing job. We use 6x4 boards to work from ensuring minimal mess and disruption to your garden and paths.

So to start Suffolk Garden Works will lift and dispose of your existing lawn. The turf thatch will be lifted by a digger or a self propelled turf cutter and put into a skip.

The soil will be re levelled. This may involve rotovating, to produce a fine tilth to work with. Any soil level changes that were discussed will now be dealt with - re distributing the existing soil, bringing in soil or even taking it out.

We are now ready to start turf laying. Suffolk Garden Works uses quality turf that is supplied by Toleshunt Turf Farms - unless otherwise specified.

This process will leave you with a stunning new lawn.

Nearly there!

Suffolk Garden works laid a new lawn in Cambridge as part of a larger landscaping project -

I had my garden made over by Tom in February 2018. A friend recommended Tom and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Tom took into account all that we discussed and completed the design as I expected. Tom’s price was competitive and came in on budget. The result is perfect for me, he is a great guy and I cannot recommend him enough. Sarah Hayes - Cambridgeshire
