TURFING & PLANTING
NJ Garden Services carries out a lot of planting and turfing. These jobs can be done almost anytime of the year however there are optimum times to get the best results.
NJ Garden services can supply plants at a much lower cost than garden centres but this service is only really offered for larger orders. We do also have an escort to wholesalers service that involves accompanying you to wholesale nurseries and assisting you in selection, loading and transport of plants at wholesale prices using our vans
Turf can be laid any time except onto frozen ground however turf laid in hot weather is vulnerable to rapid dehydration. The ground is easier to prepare in dry weather so a good time to lay a new lawn in our opinion is autumn time. The ground is still dry from the summer, but it doesn't have to deal with the scorching summer heat and long dry days.
Planting has similar issues but smaller schemes would be easier to water on a hot day. Winter time provides the opportunity to puchase bare root stock that can provide considerable savings on hedging. Plants can be planted during the winter and left to bed in and be ready for a good start in the spring.
