After many projects are completed the final stage is turfing or grass seeding. Turfing creates an instant effect, transforms and brings to life the hard and soft landscaping, creating a lush green back drop.
Grass seeding may be used on larger areas where the budget may not allow for turfing or on areas of less importance or visual impact.
MDB Landscapes include turfing within general landscaping projects as well as providing lawns to a higher specification for clients requiring a higher quality end product. For higher specification lawns using rootzone soil mixes with bent and fescue grasses or normal grade turf we also cover the London area and down to the Hampshire coastal regions.
If you require advice on or maintaining your existing lawn or require a new lawn please contact us for this or any other landscaping enquiry.
