Realisation

1. Enquiries

If you receive a request for a proposal or enquiry for installing Netlon Lawn Turf, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can provide you with a non-binding quotation for supplying the material. To do so, we will need the delivery address, the size of the surface area with the name of the proposed project and the name of the town to map it accurately. There are no fixed prices per square metre, as the price primarily depends on transport costs due the large quantity of material.

2. Ordering

The order for Netlon turf is delivered on at least two separate delivery dates (1st stage: supply of substrate and 2nd stage: delivery of the soil-less turf).

You will first be sent the Netlon mix (once installed, this will form the Netlon turf-bearing layer) and the levelling layer. If the site area is larger, delivery can be spread over several days.

You must ensure that the Netlon mix and the levelling layer have already been installed by the time the turf is delivered.

The soil-less turf is vulnerable to heat and dryness and should therefore be laid immediately after delivery. So you should allow enough time between the deliveries of the substrate and the turf.

You should order the Netlon mix with the levelling layer about 14 days before the desired delivery date. The delivery time for soil-less turf is a minimum of four weekdays.

3. Delivery

The material (Netlon mix and levelling layer) is generally delivered loose. The lorry tips the material out in the intended place. Delivery can also be made using bulk bags if access to the site is difficult or if there is limited storage at the site. Similarly, small residual quantities are also delivered in bulk bags.

4. Site conditions

As soil-less turf is a vulnerable bare-root product, there should be 14 frost-free days after laying. The lawn can start to take root without losing contact with the soil in this way.

Daily workload for installing the Netlon mix: up to 600 square metres per day are possible for extensive fire service access roads You will need a digger with an experienced driver and one further worker.

The levelling layer is easy to grade due to the high sand content.          

Laying soil-less turf is slightly faster than with normal sods.
