FAQs

Is your turf gown on plastic netting?

All of our turf is grown from seed and slowly and harvested by us here at Sherborne Turf, without the use of netting to hold the root structure together.

Does your turf contain Rye Grass?

Yes our turf contains modern dwarf perennial rye grass, this seed variety is also used by the Lawn Tennis Association at Wimbledon  

Why do you sell square yards and not meters?

As we don't believe in the use of plastic netting and allow our turf to grow longer to establish strong root growth. We use an American Turf Harvesting machine. We also find that the turf rolls are much easier to handle than square meters.  

Are your bulk bags 1 tonne or 1 cubic meter?

Our chipped barks and composts are sold by volume as the products have a low density. Therefore a bag is 0.7 of a cubic meter. However the bags of aggregates and soils are the same volume but weigh approximately 1 tonne.

Will my mower be delivered assembled? 

No. Unless collected locally all garden machinery will require some assembly and will require additional fluids to be added to the engine such as the correct oil as recommended by the engine manufacture. failure to correctly assemble the machine will lead to a void of warranty  

Do you have physical showroom?  

Yes. Sherborne Turf have a show room and even a large demonstration garden where you can see a Robot mower working, and even take some of our garden machines for a test in the garden. We can be found at the Lawn & Landscape Centre, Marston Road, Sherborne, Dorset. DT9 4SX
