Turf buying guide
It's important to choose the right turf for your garden or project when you decide to buy turf. There are different grades of turf, some of which are specialist and others are suited to a variety of applications. In choosing a turf you should consider what it is to be used for, ie how much foot traffic it will receive, and the growing conditions, such as the aspect of the garden and the soil type.
Rolawn offers two types of lawn turf; Medallion® and Minster Pro®.
Medallion is a multi-purpose, high quality turf with excellent visual appearance. Its specially selected cultivar mix produces a turf that provides the most suitable performance for the diverse UK climate and offer enhanced performance in all quality landscaping situations. It is highly adaptable to variations in rainfall, sunlight, soil type, pH levels and nutrients. Ryegrass is included for wear and disease resistance, making it suitable for a more hard wearing, family lawn. Selected cultivars are Rhizomatous and deep rooting, vital for producing a turf that provides a high level of drought tolerance.
Medallion turf can be used for lawns where a quality appearance, strength and low maintenance are important, such as family lawns which are subject to more wear and tear from children playing and pets. It is also used for sports pitches, public open spaces and golf courses.
Minster Pro turf is the ultimate fine bladed fescue turf and utilises the most technically advanced cultivars to produce a deep rooting turf of outstanding appearance, that meets the demands of today's golf and bowling green. The characteristics of Minster Pro turf also make it ideal for a variety of landscape applications, including ornamental domestic lawns not subject to excessive traffic. Its deep rooting characteristics give it improved tolerance to drought and shade. Minster Pro turf prefers a free draining, sandy soil.
As well as being used for golf greens, Minster Pro turf can be used for bunker surrounds and tees and aprons. The fescue seed mix is also salt tolerant, making it the ideal choice in coastal regions.
Both types of Rolawn turf are available in standard 1m2 rolls and, for larger projects such as sports pitches and public open spaces, we also supply both in a large Turfmaster® 13m2 roll format.
