Need Some Great Turf Laid in Essex?


Here at Hot Trowels as an extension to landscaping expertise we are proud to offer our clients fantastic professional lawn and turfing services in Essex. Having new luscious turf laid professionally can be an amazing short cut that can transform the outside of your property. We can help recommend the best turf to suit the purpose of your new lawn, also taking into account the amount of care and maintenance you are able to provide it. Some of our clients have pets and children, so require something durable, low maintenance and hard wearing. Others use lawn to compliment an existing landscaping project, so chose a soft and delicate turfing, which can require extra attention in the way of managed watering and feeding. We can also give you advice on the best grass types that will suit the drainage and soil types associated with your Essex property.Knowledge of our craft and dedication to service ensures that all preparation of the soil of your new lawn area is completed to an extremely high standard. This will give your new lawn the best chance of establishing and flourishing for years to come. As outlined below we have our own mini diggers, so we are able to quickly prepare more difficult environments. Years of experience has taught us only work with trusted Essex suppliers as local to your property as possible. This will ensure that the turf is as fresh as possible when delivered. We will never order your turf until we are completely satisfied that the preparations of your job are completely ready; ensuring that no time is wasted between your lawn is delivery and being laid.

After work is complete we give you all the tips and advice you need for after-care of your new lawn. This will require daily care from you during its establishment period, an important time frame of intensive care for your new turf, and can take up to two weeks. This does however vary by the weather conditions and the temperatures your new lawn will experience at different times of the year. Not only is it vital that the whole lawn is kept moist during this time, but we can also help you identify the warning signs of under and over watering to ensure that you know when to take action. Too many of our Essex competitors will tell you to run a hose over it daily. Unfortunately such simple advice increases the risk of damage and ultimately reseeding, which defeats the object of having turf laid.
