We grow, supply and deliver turf to the trade and retailers throughout Sunderland (SR postcodes) five days a week and 12 months of the year, weather permitting.
Our deliveries are made using a Moffatt wagon that has a detachable forklift which means that we can access difficult areas and often can place the turf directly where the customer requires it putting. Any order needs to be placed before 3.00pm the day before delivery is required and contact will be made with you that evening with an approximately delivery time.
Your turf will be delivered on a pallet - a full pallet of which holds 68sqm turf (68 rolls) and weighs approximately 1.2 tonnes. Each square metre roll measures 40cm x 250cm.
We harvest the turf the day before delivery in order that you receive our turf in the best condition possible. During extremely hot weather we may harvest your turf the morning of delivery. We ask you, where possible, to lay the turf as soon as you can after delivery. In Autumn/Winter the rolls can be left rolled up for up to two days as long as you ensure that you keep the rolls moist.
Our turf is made up of a mixture of a fine fescue grass and rye grass which aids the production of a hard-wearing domestic garden turf. This mix suits both the domestic and professional gardener and enhances recovery after wear and tear of the lawn.
You may place orders directly online through our website or, alternatively, you could ring our helpful staff in the office who will be delighted to take your order and payment via your card. We are also happy to accept cash on delivery, however, the turf cannot be left until payment has been made.
For any queries, orders and payments please contact 01325 339259.
The topsoil we supply is a screened dry topsoil suitable for turfing and planting. We deliver it in 1 tonne bulk bags on our wagons which have a detachable forklift. Should you require larger amounts we can offer delivery of bulk loads up to 20 tonnes. Our wagon forklift allows us to gain access to areas where otherwise it could be impossible to reach. For tight access, if you can drive a car through the access then we can get our forklift through.
Our topsoil is a screened virgin topsoil which has been extracted from a site which was once a field and produces a much better quality topsoil when compared to a recycled topsoil. We would advise you that if you are purchasing recycled topsoil from other sources, you may discover that it contains a lot of stones and various debris - be aware.
We store our soil under cover and it is screened immediately prior to it being delivered to you. This gives it a better texture, particularly if it is being put beneath turf as the soil needs to be raked thinly in order for it to produce a better surface.
The bags we use are 0.7 cubic meters and weigh a metric tonne. Take into consideration if you are buying from other companies they may use bags which contain only 800kg. Our bags will provide coverage of approximately 30sqm to 1 tonne of topsoil with a depth of 1 inch. Should you be concerned about how much topsoil you will need please do not hesitate to call us on 01325 339259 for advice.
We send samples of our soil away for analysis regularly in order that it meets with British Standard 3882.
We also supply a soil conditioner which we would advise that, if you have an existing soil which requires improvement, digging some of our conditioner into it would improve its’ fertility and consistency. Please refer to our page on soil conditioner.
