Turf £1.00 a piece at B & Q Chester

Found 13th May 2007
Just inside the store at Chester B & Q they had peices of turf for £1.00. Clearance the sign said.

Don't know if this is applicable to every B & Q but, hoipefully will be of some use to someone.

They were going very quickly needless to say!

Same price at B&Q in Sunderland (not the warehouse). Tend to get reduced to a quid to clear ready for the next delivery. Best time to buy is after a wet weekend. On a sunny day they will sell out at the normal price. This is strictly on a store by store basis and is at the General Manager's discretion. So phone before you travel!

Ah... I see that's why because it's a wet weekend! Wondered why only a £1.00! ;-)

Great tip and further information. If I ever need turf I will have to remember, wet weekend = (possibly) cheap B&Q turf.

Turf gets delivered to stores on a Tuesday and a Friday, so best days for chance of cheap turf are Sunday, Monday and Thursday.

Went to our local B&Q (Plymouth) last weekend to get some turf. Large pallet outside with rolls at 50p each to clear. It wasn't the healthiest looking turf, but the saving of £50 for the 25 rolls we needed was just too tempting (over the £2.49 a roll they wanted for the fresher turf elsewhere in the store). Thankfully a week of rain has made our turf look a whole lot better.

Noticed yesterday that they had more pallets on clearance at 50p, and this actually looked quite green and healthy.

I also saw some of this turf in the B&Q Ilford but was not sure about buying it since the lawn has turned yellow - does this get better or would it be a waste of money. Any experienced people to help me out?

Get some grass feed on the lawn and water regular for a couple of weeks and it should come back to life.

Brought some of this last year, at cheap / reduced price on a Monday. It looked pretty bad when purchased but grass is so resiliant and grows so quickly, if watered, then would thoroughly recommend waiting until it is reduced and would certainly never buy at the normal retail price. And it looked great in a 2/3 weeks time. A year later and you would never know the difference.

If Homebase started undercutting on this, would it be turf wars?:-D

Shh! The mods have turfed people out for making bad jokes.
Don't worry, I won't grass on you... :whistling:

Well I think this is turf-ific stuff...





sorry - I'll get my coat.

Yeh! Sod off...

sod's law someone would make a joke here.

Ah! but maybe the grass isn't as good at Homebase, as they say "The grass isn't also better on the other side" or something similar:-D

turf is 20p a roll in Milton Keynes B&Q!

Thanks for this post as I saved £99 in turf by picking up 50 rolls for 50p each from Cambridge store. Grass was almost lifeless when I got it but a few days of watering and it started looking better now except a few patches where there is no sign of grass. Does anyone have any idea how to repair the patches?

Yes, either buy more turf and insert where the 'patch' is, or simply put some grass seed in the bare patches. Might be best to get some more cheap turf, as will match existing turf better.

Thanks
