Turf Suppliers for the Olympics 2012

As London gears up to host the 2012 Olympic Games, athletes from across the world will be busy preparing to display their skills on an international stage. It is not only sports men and women who have the chance to shine at the Olympics, though. London 2012 looks set to be a fantastic showcase for UK industry, particularly when you consider that 98% of the contractors or suppliers involved with the Games are UK-based. The turf used in the main Olympic Park stadium has been supplied by Scunthorpe firm County Turf, and is sure to make a firm foundation for Olympic success. Royce Turf, the professional turf suppliers, are proud to be associated with one of the chosen Olympic contractors.

Here at Royce Turf, twenty two years of experience of providing turf  has helped us to develop a comprehensive service, as well as a great reputation for being one of the leading local distributors of cultivated turf. Working exclusively with County Turf, we are able to provide the highest-quality turf for a range of environments, whether you are a commercial client looking to update your office grounds, or a homeowner completing a garden redesign.

For the Olympic stadium, County Turf have supplied a specialist blend of perennial rye grass, smooth stalk meadow grass and fescue grass seeds which will provide a hard-wearing pitch for a range of Olympic events. It required 360 rolls of this high-quality turf to cover a 9000 square-metre area, and when the last piece of turf was laid in March last year, the impressive effect of a County Turf surface was clear to see.

It is unlikely that your lawn will be the size of a sports stadium, but you will still be looking for the highest-quality turf  to create a durable surface which will require minimal garden maintenance London We receive new deliveries of turf from County Turf every day, and our delivery service can have your turf on site within two to three days of your order. For a winning team of turf suppliers  look no further than Royce Turf.

"Thanks Ben. 
I’m in the Midlands.
Approx width is about 3.5/4ft. I was thinking to dig the stumps out, but there’s about 10 of them. :-("

Ben Carter replied to Daniel Edwards's discussion Getting rid of a Conifer/Hedge
"Depending on the width of the hedge I would over estimate rather than under estimate the amount of waste.  Confiers always seem to bulk up.  Also there will be loads of dead material at the base if the hedge is quite thick.  Are you hiring a stump g…"

john jones replied to Gary RK's discussion Re-edging with wood along a curved gravel path
"The curve and the materials are the least of the worries. The scale is the problem. When the path was originally done the edging was probably installed first and then infilled. Will be difficult to achieve such a tight job again. Easiest way is to g…"

Jim Gibbon replied to Millie Smith's discussion What to do with an oversized Cherry Laurel?
"To maintain the privacy Dan is spot on, clear out around the bottom, expose the trunks, lift the canopy and thin it out. More light will get in which will improve the feel of the area and allow a bigger choice of plants underneath. There will defini…"

Ben Carter replied to Dave F's discussion Good value strimmer
"The only thing with the husky and the echo is that the trigger looks like it could catch on something and snap off.  I notice that the latest stihl long reach hedge cutters have the same sort of arrangment.  It may just be me be pedantic.  "
