Supplied for landscaping projects, including the London Olympics 2012
Our wildflower meadow turf has been used extensively throughout the UK on major landscaping projects such as the London Olympics, as well as in many award winning show gardens.
With a good mix of native wildflowers and native grasses, it produces a beautiful natural meadow almost instantly and a habitat for a myriad of butterflies, moths, bees and other beneficial insects.
There's no waiting for months or years as there is when seeding a meadow. Just lay the turf on prepared soil and you'll have a virtually instant wildflower meadow that looks amazing.
Choose from our standard wildflower meadow turf, our shade-tolerant wildflower meadow turf, our enriched wildflower meadow turf or our wildflower meadow roof turf.
Create a low-maintenance wildlife habitat that's great to look at.
There are many advantages to wildflower meadows: they cover the ground in a beautiful mix of wildflowers and grasses; they provide a banquet of nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies, and many other insects; and they just make you feel good while you're looking at them.
Importantly, it's not just flowers for nectar feeders, but also native grasses which are food-plants for some of our moths, which are generally declining, like many of our butterflies and other insects.
There's no easier way to create a wildflower meadow! Once you've prepared the ground you just need to roll out the turf, water it from time to time, then sit back and watch it grow! You can even use it on a green roof for a really dramatic effect.
The native flower seeds mixed into the turf will give you wildflowers from early spring right through to autumn which will provide a fantastic habitat for birds, butterflies and other insects. Whilst you're waiting for your turf to bloom you can easily add a few plug plants to it or even plant bulbs underneath it.
And it doesn't matter how large or small an area you want to convert... our Wildflower Turf is supplied in easy to use rolls, each roll covering approximately 0.64 square metres. The actual roll size is 64cm wide by 1m long. So, you can order just as much as you need, from four rolls to a full pallet of 80 rolls, or even more!
I can promise you this: you won't regret it.
The standard landscaping turf is made up of 34 UK native wildflowers and grasses, minimum 75% wildflowers. All seeds used are, of course, from native stock. The grasses used in the turf form a dense sward which acts as a weed blanket, giving the wildflower plants a head start against outside competition, and have been chosen to complement rather than overwhelm the flowers.
Because our wildflower turf is grown on a plastic base, all the root development is contained within the turf itself, creating a good mat of roots. This gives it great strength which in turn makes it easy to handle and lay. And because it hasn't been cut from topsoil it hasn't lost its roots, so it establishes itself really quickly in your garden (occasionally, our soil-less turf may be unavailable, in which case we will supply an alternative).
Maintenance, apart from watering it during establishment, is minimal... no weeding or fertilising should be necessary, just an annual cutting in autumn.
Wildflower turf can be grown using specific species to suit your requirements, so please contact us with your requirements.
