For new gardens or lawns with an underlying problem, Lawnserve provides a complete lawn preparation and laying service. We are also frequently asked to turf over borders or unused areas to make larger play areas for active children.

Full preparation is carried out, including the clearance of plants, roots and detrimental debris, such as bricks and builders’ rubble. If the soil is poor we can also add fertiliser or organic matter to improve it.  Old soil can be taken away or new soil added, to achieve the desired level for the new lawn.

Tilehurst - Case Study

The long back garden of a Victorian house, which was purchased by a young family needing a "playground" for the children and an area for adult relaxation. Our brief was to clear the whole garden, leaving a special 100 year old apple tree and prepare the area for turfing. The job required the application of 20 tonnes of new topsoil to get the site suitably level.

1. Before – neglected garden.

2. Laying the turf.

3. After a few days.

4. After a month and the lawn is even greener, following rooting of the turf.

Burghfield Common- Case Study

Consultation/Garden Design

This garden had been lovingly landscaped by the previous owner but the lack of a lawn was proving frustrating for this young family, with two boisterous boys. The decision was made to create a lawn across half of the garden.

Site Preparation

The first step was to remove plants (many of which were relocated), weeds and a rather well constructed path !


Next, the whole area was rotovated and a quality, weed-free loam was added to the height required and raked until it was level.


Once the area had been suitably prepared we laid quality turf which was delivered fresh to site. We can supply a range of different turf types depending on the use. In this instance, we used Arena turf which, as the name implies, is ideal for heavily used grass areas.
