3 Questions to Ask a Lawn Delivery Service When You Order Turf

If you've decided to turf a new lawn rather than grow it from seed, then you need to get hold of turf rolls or strips. If you can't pick these up yourself, it's easier to have it delivered.

To make sure that this works well for you, there are some questions you should ask turf suppliers before you put in an order. What do you need to know?

1. Can You Have a Set Delivery Slot?

It's not generally a good idea to leave turf sitting around in your garden after you have a delivery. If you leave turf out for too long before putting it down, then it can dry out, suffer from humidity problems and even start to rot or die off.

Turf strips and rolls bed in better and produce better quality lawn grass if you lay them as soon as you can. If you start putting your turf down as soon as you get it or, at the very least, within a few hours of its delivery, then you stand a better chance of creating a flourishing lawn.

So, it helps to ask your lawn supplier about their delivery times. Can you choose a specific day or even a set time slot? If you can do this, you get fresh turf at a time when you know you are ready to lay it.

2. Where Is the Turf Coming From?

Turf is relatively fragile. In some cases, it can run into problems during the time it is out for delivery. It could get squashed and compressed. Or, it could get too hot, too cold or too wet.

This isn't so much of a problem if your turf comes from a local supplier. However, if you've ordered your lawn supplies online, then your turf may have a longer journey. It might not arrive at your home in the best possible condition.

If you are ordering online or from a non-local source, ask the supplier how they get the turf to you. If it does have a longer journey, they will take measures to keep the grass in good nick while it's on its way.

3. What Should You Do When the Turf Arrives?

In some cases, you can lay turf as soon as it arrives. However, there are times when you need to prepare the turf or give it some time to recover from its journey.

For example, if the turf has got hot in transit, then separating out the strips or rolls and putting them in some shade to cool down helps restore their natural balance. It's worth asking your supplier if there is anything you should do with the turf after it arrives and before you put it down.
