Re-Turfing Service


A waterlogged garden can be very bad for your lawn and plants, this is due to the fact that the water fills all the air spaces between the soil particles preventing oxygen from reaching their roots.
Plants may look like they need water due to this lack of oxygen, their leaves can turn yellow and they can start to wilt. Plant growth can be stunted, or plants can fail to sprout and shoots die back.

Waterlogging also encourages algae, moss, lichens and liverworts, which flourish in badly-drained or ‘soggy’ lawns.

This is why we also offer a re-turfing service which can be in combination with or separate from our garden drainage service.
