This one’s really important!
Turf is delivered using a Manual Pallet Truck and a Tail Lift, not a Hi-Ab, or a Crane.
What does this mean to you?
This means that your delivery access needs to be completely flat and hardstanding. We cannot deliver onto any hills, slopes, gravel or stones.
As we deliver onto the kerbside the majority of the time, you will need a flush, flat kerbside, so our pallet trucks can get onto the kerb to complete your delivery of turf.
If this doesn’t work for you, but you would still like delivery of turf, simply call our Customer Service Team and a member of staff will do their best to find a way to get your turf delivered.
Why can’t we deliver onto hills, or slopes? It’s a fantastic question that we get asked all the time. The delivery networks that span the country, including the depots in Liverpool, use Manual Pallet trucks that don’t have any brakes on. With the weight of the goods, the driver can struggle to gain enough momentum to push the product up a slope, or hill.
Why can’t we deliver onto gravel, or stones? Another good question! The pallet trucks wheels will not work on Grass, Gravel or Stones, because the surface is not hard (and or) smooth enough for the vehicle to get enough traction on, and therefore either jam or get stuck.
Need to find out how many m2 of turf you need? It’s one of the first challenges most of our customers face.
It’s actually really simple - but, where do you even start?
Simply measure (in meters) the length and width of your lawn and multiply them together. That’s how much you need.
Here’s an example: 4 meters * 3 meters = 12m2.
However, if you prefer to use a tool that does it for you, then jump on our Turf Calculator . Alternatively, give us a call on 01785 850 653, and our Customer Service Team will help you work out your required total.
Looking to get Turf, but unsure on how to lay it? We hear this a lot, as more and more people want to re-invent their gardens.
The task of laying turf sounds complicated and expensive, but it really isn’t! We have created a beginner focused Turf laying guide.
You’ll be surprised when you see how short it is.
