As a landscaper, there are significant benefits to sourcing turf locally.  In case you need convincing of them, here are our top six advantages to sourcing your turf locally.

  1. Fresher and healthier turf

Local sourcing means that the turf will be freshly harvested. This can result in a healthier and more vibrant product because it hasn’t spent extended periods in transit or storage. Fresh turf is more likely to establish quickly and thrive once laid, contributing to a successful landscaping project.

  1. Adaptability to local climate

Turf that is grown locally is typically better adapted to the specific climate and soil conditions of the region. This adaptability can enhance the chances of successful establishment and long-term health of the turf, as it is inherently suited to the local environment.

  1. Reduced environmental impact

Local sourcing often involves shorter transportation distances, reducing the environmental impact associated with the delivery of turf. This can result in lower carbon emissions, decreased fuel consumption, and a smaller overall ecological footprint aligning with sustainable landscaping practices.

  1. Support for local economy

Choosing locally sourced turf supports local businesses and the regional economy. It helps maintain jobs within the community and fosters a sense of collaboration and mutual support among local businesses. This can be especially important for small businesses and contributes to the overall economic well-being of the area.

  1. Quicker turnaround and flexible ordering

Local turf suppliers can offer quicker turnaround times for orders, as they are closer to the project site. This can be crucial for landscapers who may need to adjust their schedules or respond to unforeseen changes in project timelines or weather conditions.

Additionally, local suppliers may be more flexible with order sizes, allowing landscapers to acquire the specific amount of turf needed for their projects without excess waste.

  1. Delivery or collection – you decide!

Your freshly harvested turf can be ready for collection with only 24 hours’ notice should delivery be required with us. This can be achieved for you on the day of your choice. Sometimes even the next working day.

To conclude

Sourcing turf locally provides many advantages such as freshness, adaptability, reduced environmental impact, support for the local economy and logistical benefits as well as having an advantage over your competitors.
