from the picture, this seems to roll to the left. I need to roll to the right hand side, are there any similar offers?

just flip it around ?



Thanks didn't think of that. How long would it take for the grass to grow through so the soil isn't visible after flipping it over?

​Agreed with you about TP pricing especially when they provide a quote its nowhere near trade point, jewsons, wickes. selco or local merchants however they will come down to beat or match others if you ask as i always do and will often chuck free delivery in.

a rep called me once for a survey and when i mentioned the above pricing / haggling he said he had heard that more than a few times so its obviously a tatic they employ

I so need to do a 5 square metre patch in the middle of the garden where the kids trampoline used to be that had killed all the grass, and a old flower bed next to it that needs to be turfed. Putting it off every year as it just seems like too much work. I've put some really strong weed killers on the flower beds but the old flowers and weeds come back after a year. Reluctant to lay turf after ive used industrial strong weed killer as well. Any pointers/tips from the HUKD titchmarsh?

only order for the trade?

I wouldn't mind re doing my front & back but i cba putting the effort in X) 100 rolls for the back & forgot how many for the front.. Any gardners want a job?

Travis perkins, understaffed, overpriced, overworked staff.
Disgraceful service by a bloated top heavy company.
Poor working conditions and disillusionment throughout most branches.

Cold on the deal.
Same price if not cheaper elsewhere.
Price isn't bad but delivery service is abysmal not enough resources to provide an adequate service.
Buy from a dedicated turf supplier where it's cut from the field on a morning and delivered same day.
Travis perkins 3 day turnaround at best.

TP have the mindset of a single premises yard - happy with the few customers they get who they can charge extortionate prices to. Not moved with the times. Can't remember if Wickes bought them or other way around - anyway Wickes miles better.

Crikey just looked re companies - sort of shows that Travis Perkins sites are just a pee take out of purchasers who go there. They own Toolstation (see why in Wickes) which can be very cheap. Infact Toolstation are cheaper than Wickes - You can buy X in Wickes for £5 but in same store you can go to Toolstation and buy same product for £4 - weird business model.

On the website it says, "there is a minimum order of 20 rolls and a maximum order of 200 rolls per single delivery" gutted.

I don't think he meant flip it over but really turn it around 180 degrees, all turf are rolled one way and you unroll it in the desired direction. I recommend watching videos on Youtube on how to lay turf if it is your first time. After the ground has been prepared, it takes about 4-5 hours for a novice to lay 50 rolls of turf with second person assisting.

Although I posted this deal yesterday, I purchased 90 rolls from TP just over a week ago at the same price. The turn around is 3 days from order. It is worth noting the rolls are delivered "fresh" from Rolawn (Yorkshire) in the morning to the local TP branch. After that you are at the mercy of the TP delivery team to get the turf delivered to the door.

Just turn the roll to start at the left or right hand side, it really doesn't matter as the grass should end up growing vertically !!

TBF Toolstation for me is the alternative to B&Q owned Screwfix
Wickes is the alternative to B&Q & Homebase.
Screwfix is usually cheaper than B&Q.

Just had 100sqM - best turf you can get and this price is great. Dont know what other people are looking at elsewhere but this is well know as the best.

If you can find cheaper let us know ASAP - Rolawn medallion is £4 from them direct!

Might be worth removing the Dorothy Perkins tag

The number of posts completely missing arjun's jokes is alarming - thought it was only the americans that didn't get sarcasm X)

do you need to be in the trade to buy from TP?

Tripletrouble

Used to work for them in both hands on labour work and junior management.

Up here in the north Travis seems to particularly suffer, they are massive down south, they cannot compete on price or service against the independent merchants up here in the north.

Chronic staffing levels in branches.
Delivery an absolute joke, you wouldn't think that toolstation, wickes and Keyline are group companies amongst others, they seem to be much better oiled machines than TP.

could not agree more They are way overpriced in almost everything.

I wanted some bags of sand and cement they came back with a ridiculous price and I was able to get it for less in a place around the corner. pays to shop around

I need topsoil to bring up an area of 2mx5m x 15cm deep. Maybe I should grow the grass longer as the online calculators came back as 2+ tonnes of topsoil !

good deal if you have a garden the size of wembley

Does anyone know if I could purchase at this price now and then delay the delivery until I am ready to use the turf? I.e. in a few weeks time?

You'd be looking at 1500 litres (more if you want it a little more compacted of course).
I've actually found Homebase's prices for individual bags of top soil @ £2.86 for 25l to not be too badly priced (and the topsoil is good quality). 1500 / 25 = 60 bags. 60* £2.86 = £171.60 if you did want to raise the levels...
Hope that helps!

It's the wrong time of year to be laying turf.

gone for artificial instead.

does it come with gripers and underlay

Would like to see some artificial turf offer on here too. Quality seems to be getting better so might be the way to go?

Rolawn Medallion is the award winning turf. consider it free at this price. I used Travis Perkins to buy it 3 years ago. Absolutely amazing service. and the Turf quality was awsome.
