Turf - Newcastle
We supply turf to Newcastle all year around and delivery to most NE postcodes 5 days a week. All of our deliveries are carried out using wagons with detachable forklifts which mean we can drop turf directly onto drives where possible. The advantage of a detachable forklift is we can carry out deliveries where access with a large wagon can be an issue. We accept orders for next day delivery up to 3.00pm and you will be given a time slot the evening before delivery.
The turf we supply is 40cm wide by 250cm long and each roll is 1 square meter. We tend to cut our turf about 15mm deep which is worth bearing in mind when preparing an area you want to have a flush finish with. There is 68 square meters on a full pallet which will weigh in the region of 1.2 tonnes.
All our turf is harvested to order the day before delivery which means it arrives with the customer in great condition and leaves you with time to lay it before it starts to deteriorate. In hot weather we even delay our harvesting to the morning of delivery to ensure you are getting a product to be proud of. In the summer months we recommend laying the turf the same day as delivery but in Autumn/Winter this can be extended to the day after delivery. You can place an order directly through the website or if you prefer please call us and we will take the order over the phone. If you would prefer not to use a card as payment method we are happy to take cash on delivery.
The seed mix we use is a mixture of fine fescue grasses and more hardwearing rye grasses. This gives you the advantage of having a fine looking lawn that will also be tolerant to wear and tear and will recover well under stress. The seed mix we use suits most applications for the domestic or professional gardener such as lawns, verges of amenity areas.
We also supply topsoil to all Newcastle areas either in bags or bulk loads. If you order turf and topsoil you only pay one delivery charge so it is well worth while ordering them together. Please see our topsoil page for more info.
We use a variety of fertilisers to grow a turf that is green and lush and encourage our customers to fertilise their new lawn when laid to ensure it looks that way in the future. Please see our fertiliser page for more info.
If you have any queries regarding our turf of how the delivery will be carried out please feel free to call us on 01325 339259.
Topsoil - Newcastle
We supply screened dry topsoil all year round to the Newcastle area. Topsoil is supplied in 1 tonne bulk bags or for customers who require larger amounts we can supply in bulk loads up to 20 tonnes. Bulk bags are delivered by our own wagons that have detachable forklifts. Using these forklifts we can drop bags exactly where the customer wishes as long as access if possible. If you have a property where access might be an issue the detachable forklifts are ideal as we can park the wagon nearby and then carry the turf using the forklift which is much smaller. As a rule of thumb if you can get a car through a narrow opening you can get one of our forklifts through.
The soil we supply is screened virgin topsoil. This means the soil has come directly from a field or site that was once a field and therefore a much superior product to recycled soil which some companies sell. We commonly hear stories from customers who have ordered cheap soil from skip and haulage companies and when it is delivered is full stones and other debris. If you are ordering soil from a skip or recycling company be very weary of where it has come from.
We store all our soil inside and then freshly screen it before delivery. This means you get a product which is dry and good to work with. This is especially important if you are using it for turfing and need to rake it out thin to get a nice level finish.
The soil we sell comes in a bag that is 0.7 cubic meters and weighs a metric tonne. Many companies (especially builders merchants) sell bags of soil that are only approximately 800kg in weight. If you are trying to work out how much soil you need a bag contains 0.7 cubic meters. As a rough guide one bag will cover 30 square meters with 1 inch of soil. Please feel free to call us on 01325 339259 and we can advise you on how much soil you require.
Our soil meets the British Standard 3882 which means we send samples away to be analysed to confirm if has nothing to worry about in and that it can be used in a variety of applications like turfing and planting.
The soil we sell if suitable for turfing work but is also good enough quality to use for planting as well. We sell lots of soil to customers who are creating raised flower beds.
If you have existing soil which you are trying to improve in terms of fertility and consistency please see our page on soil conditioner which can be dug into existing soil to improve it.
