    Quality Where Quality Matters

    Our Fine Turf is designed for fast and accurate playing surfaces.

Turfgrass Specification

Turfgrass delivers predictable and pleasing landscape results. It's easy to specify and easy for contractors to work with.

It's good for the environment and good for people. The three main grades of turf are described below.

Fine Turf

Providing the basis for very accurate and fast playing surfaces like bowling greens and golf greens and super smooth lawns.

Fine Turf Mixture

Brown Top Bent
Tolerates very close mowing and has good winter colour, but has a low resistance to disease and is not very hard wearing.

Chewing's Fescue
A more tufted grass, which starts growth early in the spring and falls off in the late summer, compared to…

Slender Creeping Red Fescue
Not tufted, but has a rhizomatous habit of growth, which starts later in the spring and continues in to autumn, complimenting a mix containing the two varieties. It has excellent salt tolerance too.

Strong Creeping Red Fescue
Quite a vigorous grass that does not withstand close mowing, has a lower shoot density than the other two fescues, but does recover well.


Medium Fine Turf

For areas which take a harder pounding such as domestic lawns, city squares, football pitches.

Medium Fine Turf Mixture

Dwarf Perennial Ryegrass
Superior wear tolerance, fast establishment from seed, great all year round colour and has a high resistance to many diseases. Can be mown quite close, especially the more modern super fine dwarf perennial varieties.

Smooth Stalked Meadow Grass
Good colour, especially in the summer months, durable and has vegetative propagation qualities, quite hardy.

Slender Creeping Red Fescue

Strong Creeping Red Fescue

Chewing's Fescue


Heavy Duty Turf

Really tough turf that can withstand heavy wear and tear, but also the extremes of our changing climatic conditions.

Heavy Duty Turf Mixture

Rhizomatous Tall Fescue
This is a hard wearing self renewing turfgrass variety. Because it produces deep rhizomes it is extremely drought tolerant, copes well under water and is also tolerant of shade. Fantastically durable, saline tolerant and has a high tensile strength.

Dwarf Perennial Ryegrass
With 3 or 4 different cultivars making 100% of the mixture.

Smooth Stalked Meadow Grass

Crested Hair Grass
Superb drought tolerance, good shoot density and has an extremely low nutrient requirement once established. This grass could be used in low maintenance lawns and landscapes, which can reduce labour and consumable inputs or difficult to access areas such as roundabouts, embankments and roof gardens.

“Bad putting is due more to the effect the green has upon the player than it has upon the action of the ball”

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.
