Turf and Turfing in Hertfordshire & Essex
Turf can be purchased and laid on a carefully prepared surface to give a rapid finish for a new lawn. Perfect Ground Solutions provide expert advice in site preparation, selecting and sourcing the correct turfing, laying turf to a very high standard and working with garden designers, landscapers and private clients, to create and establish lawns throughout Hertfordshire and Essex, that will establish well and give years of use for your family.
The most important step in turfing is the preparation of the underlying soil to create the best growing conditions for any newly laid turf.
Well consolidated, good quality topsoil is needed for the young roots emerging from the turf to expand and grow. The grass plants are stressed as the turf is harvested and so newly laid turf needs careful nurturing to give the right balance of water and nutrients, to support the grass recovery and establishment at its new site. In some situations, fungicides may also be needed to help the turf resist fungal diseases during early growth. We also look to make sure that the soil microflora is in good health which is a key part of rapid and sustainable development.
Where required, we will look to add additional bio stimulants and in some cases add additional microflora to improve soil health rapidly. We offer tailored aftercare packages for the client to ensure that the newly laid turf establishes well and becomes a long-lasting lawn.
We offer year-round advice and lawn management services, aimed at making sure your turfing and lawn is kept in the best possible health. We assess the health of your soil and, where required, making adjustments to the soil acidity to help improve nutrient uptake and improve the soil microflora.
We also provide a programme for ongoing nutrition which will vary from season to season to take into account the seasonal weather and the lawn response. Different soil types require different nutritional programs and Perfect ground Solutions makes sure that the programme used on your lawn is suitable for your soil type whilst also taking into account the weather at the time. This means that we will change programmes in hot dry spells or in seasons with above average rainfall.
