What do I do with my old turf?

Getting rid of old turf can be an issue, but there are various options you could try, such as:

Composting – Old turf makes great compost, but be warned, it will take a couple of years to break down. The simplest way to compost old turf is to stack it grass side down in a sunny patch of the garden and try not to let nettles or any other intrusive weeds take root in it.

Garden waste – Another option for getting rid of your old turf is by using your local councils garden waste disposal service. To find out more visit www.gov.uk/garden-waste-disposal

Use a professional – Many reputable, turf laying professionals will dispose of your old turf once they’ve finished laying your new turf. If in doubt make sure to ask prior to booking.
