A dense Bent/Fescue sward with very high purity and low thatch content.
Features: Mowing height at harvest 6-8mm. The final composition is usually 60-70% Bent and 30-40% Fescue. Accurate botanical composition carried out by an independent RIPTA agronomist available. Grown to order on USGA specification rootzone.
Uses: Golf greens.
Sown Mixture: 30% bent, 30% slender creeping red fescue and 40% chewings.
Low Maintenance – LT2
An environmentally sustainable mixture suitable for intensive (greens) or extensive use (fairways and semi-rough).
Features: Fine appearance, reduced irrigation, fertiliser and fungicide inputs, salt tolerant, will tolerate sand splash, will mow down to 5mm or can be left to grow to natural height of 200mm.
Uses: Greens and greens surrounds as a fescue green replacement, exposed drought drone areas and for difficult banks where mowing is a problem.
Sown Mixture: 25% crested hairgrass, 20% hard fescue, 35% slender creeping red fescue, 20% chewings fescue.
New creeping rye turf is extremely hard wearing. The creeping rye aspect of this turf grow and repairs rapidly making it ideal for heavy traffic areas such as tees and pathways.
Features: Able to auto-repair quickly via reproductive tillers, has exceptional wear tolerance, flexibility in mowing height and reduced mowing compared to traditional rye grass.
LT6 is a turf with rye grass as the main constituent, yet with a strong presence of smooth stalked meadow grass, valuable for wear and recovery in a difficult winter. Once in play, the fescue element will reduce allowing the smooth stalked meadow grass to increase to a level dictated by the management regime. USE WITH CAVIAR FERTILISER.
Features: Hard wearing, quick recovery, disease resistant.
Uses: Sports pitches, high wear landscaping & shade.
Sown Mixture: 60% hard wearing dwarf perennial rye grass, 25% smooth stalked meadow grass, 15% slender creeping red fescue.
Festival – LT7
Festival LT7 grade lawn turf is renowned for its outstanding appearance and strong green colour. The turf also benefits from being easy to maintain with a dense and hardwearing structure.
Features: Outstanding appearance and strong green colour, hardwearing and dense, easy to maintain.
Uses: Lawns and general landscaping. Turf for contractors and specifiers.
Grassfelt, is a mature soil-less grass growing in felt especially designed to retain moisture and give great strength and flexibility.
Features: Extremely pliable, creating a ‘living carpet’ ideal for covering mounds, steep slopes and embankments and to create unusual grass features. The biodegradable felt medium, made from recycled British textiles, acts as a weed barrier and retains moisture to aid establishment although it will still need watering daily until established. Rooting from the growing turf is rapid – useful for areas prone to soil erosion.
Uses: Slopes, shapes and erosion control – unusual landscape architecture, living grass sculptures and design features, erosion control, steep embankments and green roofs.
Sown mixture: Can be grown in a number of mixtures.
Lokturf is designed specifically for high performance, high impact situations, such as sports pitches, car parks and visitor attractions.
Lokturf is a mature turf for instant use, 40mm thick, grown by seeding hard-wearing cultivars of perennial ryegrass and smooth stalked meadow grass into Loksand, and polypropylene fibre reinforced rootzone.
Features: Immediate use, surfaces that stay firm and level for longer, greater resistance to wear and tear, rapid drainage by reducing rootzone compaction, less devoting and more active grass recovery, durable load bearing surface
Uses: Sports pitches – replacement of worn areas. Equestrian. High wear situations – such as grass car parks, walkways and fire access roads. High traffic areas around golf courses.

All grades can be supplied as a mature turf washed using highly specialised machinery to remove all soil particles prior to laying on a free draining sand rootzone.
• Avoids contamination of high specification
rootzones with fine turfsoil particles
• Avoids creation of a layer which impedes
root development and water percolation
• Roots faster as it seeks water and nutrients
• Produces a greater biomass of roots
• Faster establishment time
Big rolls are available 0.75 or 1.05m width x up to 28m length, final thickness 15 -20mm
Tractor mounted laying frames or hand held Laying Trolleys are available for hire when ordering big rolls.
