Hope this deal can be of use to people........

Went into local B and Q today at Barnsley and they have reduced the turf they sell.

Was previously £3.48 for 1 yard of turf - now is just £0.50p - the turf was still good condition not dead or anything like that !!!

I have added a photo to the thumbnail as evidence but for some reason it has not come up ???......

store specific deal only, having worked for b&q, they only put them up for sale if they've got too much stock or its fairly old. even so, its a bargain

Come on B&Q we have been metric since 1973. Surely should be 1 sq metre.

A 'yard'? What's one of those? If it's not too big, I'll bring it home using my new invention: the wheel.

We have partly adopted the Metric system, you mean. We've never properly embraced it (along with the States, and one or two other countries you've never heard of). The rest of the world has since moved on to the SI too, so take solace in the fact that we're only a generation and a half behind. Go, UK!(_;)

Oh sod it

This'll save me carpeting the hallway. Cheers OP.

The 50p turf at my local is all the dead stuff.

X) Derby by any chance?

Even if it looks pretty rough. once down and a good watering it just boosts to life.

I did my whole lawn the other week on a similer deal from the B&Q in bury(was a quid a roll)

theres a couple of questionably patches but id say about 90% of it has come up fantastic

With hosepipe bans in large parts of the country they'll be giving this away in a few weeks.

I am guessing the new turf comes in on a Friday ready for the weekend (when they sell most). Therefore old stock is sold off cheap on a Thursday..

Good luck keeping this alive long enough for it to root in the hosepipe ban zone. I cannot legally use a hosepipe to wash my car and yet yesterday my neighbours landrover was washed away from his farm by rain water. God bless Victorian plumbing and Thames waster. Great price though heat

@ Smashed; Your right, the new delivery does come in on a Friday, and a Tuesday also, The turf holds a 'shelf' life of around 3 days, it is a fast selling product for B&Q during the summer months, but is occasionally sold off when its gets a little dried out, the price is store specific as the till price will be £3.48, so expect to see this offer with a few different price tags as the price is down to the managers discretion.

Have you not looked outside any time in the last week? With the prospect of flash floods, rivers bursting and heavy rainfall expected to last well into May, the last thing on God's Earth you need to worry about is your garden going un-watered.

Banned

Did my lawn with the 50p turf, I too thought I was getting a bargain £30 for my whole lawn. Watered it twice daily for two weeks.

It all died.

Imma go in B & Q wearin' my gang colours and start a turf war.

meh got 20m sq of Rolawn delivered yesterday for £3 a sq Meter

What you all moaning about having to water it, if its 50p, well I live in the green green grass of home, and it has been rainng non stop for last 3 days, get a life, and buy a bargain.

I work for b&q depends on store stock this.is not a national markdown but it seems.some seasonal managers ordered too much turf and its cheaper to sell it for 50p than throw it ,it has a on shelf life of 3 to 4 day then its gotta be sold cheap or Qlawns take it back at a charge

I bought about 140 of these reduced rolls about 8 or 9 years ago to do my back garden in my last house & I know that it is still looking fine as of now! They used to reduce it on the same day every week when the stock had been in for 5 days I think. It was a little of the dry side, but I wouldn't worry to much about that at the moment!! With plenty of water for around a month it will look great!!! I couldn't get all of the rolls at the same time, but kept going back for a few weeks on the morning of the day they were reduced to buy up their stock.

Loads of free turf down at my local cricket ground, The leave it connected to the ground for quality reasons, best time to collect is after dark. Take a spade! :~)

Give it a month or two, and you'll be able to buy yards of turf from Rangers stadium for much less

Cheap

I bought this turf when it was 50p did my entire garden with it. After about a month only half of it had grown. Went back in with photos and they replaced te lot with a load of fresh stuff.

May work out good value and may take and look great. However professionally turf growers throw away turf that has been cut for more than 24 hours.

Technically they shouldn't sell turf past a couple of days old.

Turf on the roll is generally watered 'on the roll' in these large chains. It should be rolled out and watered and thrown away if not sold after 48 hrs or as it's simply no good after this point.

Cold from me.

Got some from B&Q Colchester - Looks okay.

Difference with us and countries like the US is they have fully NOT embraced it, we can't seem to make our minds up and it's just confusing.

as per 1st comment - i bought ten rolls and was pretty disappointed when unrolled as it was patchy and pretty shabby, but after 3 days of being unrolled and resting on myexisting grass, its all lush n green ready to lay...i should probably have just laid it. Going back for more tomorrow - excellent buy!!
