INTURF Lay 'n' Play Sports Pitches
For instant repairs at sports sites, or for the more specialised turfing projects where instant turf stability is required, Thick Cut Big Roll or Lay ‘n’ Play Fibre Turf are available.
Inturf have installed Lay 'n' Play Fibre Turf and Thick Cut Big Roll at horse racing courses, football pitches and rugby pitches, most recently at Hurlingham Park in London.
Currently used for football and rugby, Hurlingham Park has invested in bringing the grassed areas up to a standard for polo, and is now hosting polo matches for the first time in 70 years.

“I always thought a yard was three feet, then I started mowing the lawn.”
A hot weather warning
We put so much effort into growing excellent turf, and our customers put so much into laying it, that the last thing we want is for people to lay turf that is doomed to fail.
So, if the daytime temperature is consistently over 20◦ and the humidity is high, the thousands of little grass plants in the turf roll (there could be up to 850 plants per square foot) will struggle to establish and flourish. It will be best to wait until things change to lay the turf, for example a fall in temperature is predicted or rain is promised. (Of course, established turf will bounce back from even prolonged periods of heat and drought and look as lovely as ever.)
Follow our advice and your new turf should do well and add real value to your garden or landscape. Ignore it and all your hard work could be for nothing.
