  • 4 Autumn Leaf Clearing Hacks

    Autumn may well be one of the most picturesque seasons, however as the leaves turn from green into vibrant orange and yellow, you can be sure that within a matter of days your garden and lawn will turn into a blanket of leaves. In this article we’ve outlined a few tried and tested methods in clearing leaves.

    Use a jumbo bag of tarpaulin to move large piles of leaves

    As it's easy to see whenever looking out the window on a windy day, leaves are incredibly light, therefore as long as you have the means to hold a large quantity, they can be moved with fairly minimal effort. Piling leaves up into a jumbo bag or tarpaulin will save you bags of time. At London Lawn Turf we even sell jumbo bags that you can collect from any one of our 5 depots. 

    A mulching mower

    Some lawn mowers will have a setting to mulch. The idea behind this is the lawn mower works in a similar way to a blender, the leaves get sucked in and are obliterated into tiny pieces, then when left on the lawn, these will mulch down and biodegrade into a great fertiliser. 

    A standard petrol lawn mower

    If you don’t have a mulching mower a normal mower can be used. The leaves will be sucked into the bag, which can then be taken to your compost heap. It’s important to remember to keep the blade height on your mower at its highest setting, also bear in mind that areas of dense leaves may have you emptying your bag every few metres! 

    A leaf blower

    By far the easiest and quickest way of moving leaves is with a leaf blower, for larger areas invest in a backpack leaf blower to make the task less strenuous. Blowing the leaves into piles around trees in your garden will help protect the roots against cold winder and lock in important moisture.

  • 2019 The year of a Million Rolawn Turf

    As summer drawers to a close and we look ahead to the long winter months there’s still plenty to shout about for us at The London Lawn Turf Company. For we have just surpassed a milestone that we’re incredibly proud of. On the 26th of September 2019 we sold this year’s Millionth Roll of Rolawn Turf

    We’d like to extend a massive thank you to all our loyal customers who have helped us achieve this great feat.

    To celebrate our record-breaking year, we’ve taken a closer look at this astronomical figure and have uncovered some truly staggering stats.

    One million square metres of turf would cover more than 140 football pitches, The Natural History Museum 10 Times, London’s St James’ Park 5 times and nearly half of the 2012 Olympic Village.

    When rolled out each roll is 1.6 metres in length, with 1 million rolls we could create a lush green carpet that would reach all the way to Berlin, or if we’re feeling more adventurous halfway to the moon!

    This isn’t the only way London Lawn Turf is making the world a greener place, it is thought that 225m2 of Turf will provide enough oxygen to meet the daily needs of a family of four, therefore over 1,000,000m2 is enough to provide oxygen for nearly 4500 families!

    We’ve been premier stockists of Rolawn products for the past 15 years and are advocates for the use of premium quality and long-lasting landscaping materials. We have 5 depots operating throughout London that offer same day collections and next day deliveries on our entire product range.

    Alongside our efficient supply network, we have 5 highly skilled installation teams. To find out more about what we can do for you call us now on 01959 897 603.

    Here’s to the next million!
