Our turf is cut from fields in the 'South Hams' between Dartmoor and the Sea in South Devon.
The soil is from old pasture land that has been hundreds of years in the making. Our turf is regularly rolled, mowed, fertilised, weed and moss treated. Seeded turf contains grasses such as Dwarf perennial ryegrass, Fescue's and Bent's and makes more of a luxury grade of lawn than Meadow turf, but requires more maintenance (Advice page).
Modern Dwarf perennial ryegrass is fine bladed, durable, slow growing and hard wearing, it is in most Seeded Turf these days. Fescue grasses are native to Europe, they bind turf together for durability and are drought resistant, and they are a fine leaved small grass.
Bent grasses give turf a nice deep green look, it is shallow rooted with long slender leaves, it handles footwear well and is often used in golf course turf.
Intermediate Turf (hard wearing sport grass)
Intermediate turf is harder wearing than the luxury seeded grass, it contains a seed mix that is typically 50% Dwarf Perennial Rye Grass and 50% Red Creeping Fescue and makes a turf fit for sport usage and durability.
Our Meadow turf is cut from fields where the soil is from old pasture land that has been hundreds of years in the making.
Meadow grass is the most hard wearing of all turf, and will stand neglect better than seeded types. If you are looking for a rustic look or you have children or dog's and you need a lawn that will stand up to a lot of wear or if you are laying on banks or hedges, then meadow turf is the best for the job.
If you are on a budget and you need to keep cost down, then meadow turf is the best for you.
