Basically i went to my local b&q to buy some tiles and they reduced their fresh grass strips to £1.00. People literally went crazy over them.

I paid £2 a roll from our local supplier and it was fresh cut that day.

The lady at B&Q said it probably is because its the season where turf is finishing and its getting reduced everywhere.

It's far more likely that they've been sitting in their store for the last week and are far past their best

I highly doubt it's national. It's probably the last of the turf, and well past fresh. They probably have a fresh delivery in tomorrow and need rid of this. I bought turf at £1 a roll from Homebase a couple of months back. it was cheap because it was half dead, and they wanted rid. A lot of watering and a few added grass seeds, has made it look as fresh as the day it was cut.

You'd think a square meter of grass and soil would just collapse as soon as you pick it up off the shelf

Literally?

The dictionary never defined the language anyway. New words are being added to the dictionary BECAUSE of how people use language, not the other way around. I remember my primary school teacher moaning about the use of kids meaning children instead of goats, if she was my teacher now, boy would I have some nice words to say to her.

Always surprises me when I see B&Q selling turf in the middle of summer, when it will need watering several times a day.

The best time to lay turf, or to sow grass seed, is early Spring or late Autumn.

This is not a deal.

You wont find it at your local store.

I have been looking throughout the whole summer, my local had it for 20p, stevenage branch a month later had it for 80p which while i was waiting in the car park the whole crate full sold out within 1 hour.

You simply wont find it for £1.

my dad sells this and cuts it fresh for day of delivery. shops buy it by the pallet load and once it's gone past its best they sell it cheap. similar to flowers in a supermarket

i lay a fair bit of the stuff, an old handsaw works best for me to make cuts and shape it. If its been cut on a warm day it will have a shelf life of 3 days rolled up at the maximum.

Get a spade and drive to your local golf course. Much cheaper.

Best doing it at night though.......

I was looking for turf and that's how I discovered this site a bit less than a year ago

£1.50 at St Helens one !

Great deal, shame I don't need any at the moment.

Some branches were giving away packs of washing powder with every 5 square metres.
Ask for the Surf 'n' Turf deal.

Just in time to die for the winter, nothing like a perennial mud patch to watch during those long nights to cheer you up

Voted cold. I buy turf from a farm that grows it, 80p per roll for the 'meadow grass' which is the rough stuff, or £1 for the cultivated/best all year round, they also supply lots of garden centres around the area that give it a massive mark up, then drop the price back to reality when its dead for bargain hunters that dont know any better.
