Aqualawn System

Relax – An AquaLawn leaves nothing to chance!

The idea of perfect lawn is not a new concept – but our process and our people are different.

It’s your AquaLawn, so we start by coming to see you! This is your chance to be demanding, tell us what you want – is your AquaLawn somewhere to play, a hideaway to unwind in, or your place to entertain – we want to know!  

Now the science starts. We combine your brief with a full garden assessment and soil analysis to formulate the perfect seed selection. This tailored system is unique to AquaLawn.

Our experienced teams expect perfection. AquaLawn installers are specially selected for their experience and knowledge.

All installers are accredited through the AquaLawn training and assessment programme – making AquaLawn people the most highly trained in the industry.

Bespoke Seed Selection

A turf lawn limits your options. A turf grower will mass produce a limited range of cultivated species. These species are chosen for their speed of growth but are often not suitable for all garden areas, soils types or locations – there are no guarantees of a healthy lawn.

Unlike using turf, the AquaLawn process allows you to select the perfect seed for your lawn. AquaLawn knows that certain seed species struggle to grow in certain soil types or conditions, and we go to great lengths to ensure the seed we select matches your soil perfectly.

Our analysis and assessment tells us about:

  • Soil Type  
  • pH
  • Nutrient Level and Availability
  • Trace Element Data
  • Compaction Level
  • Drainage
  • Shading

AquaLawn goes even further, and is able to tailor your seed to match you – hardy species for pets or play, fine lawn species for a manicured finish, or species rich mixtures for natural gardens – the list goes on.

AquaLawn leaves nothing to chance.

Grown In-Situ

Turf is traditionally cultivated, cut and transported in rolls. Once rolled the turf begins to heat-up which can lead to yellow, black or oily turf, with a rotting smell. Turf that is left rolled up for too long often dies in patches due to the heat stress.

Turf can heat up within 24 hours of harvesting meaning the window for installation is very short. Only a very small percentage of all turf cut in the UK is actually laid within 24 hours, and most turf is laid more than 48 hours after cutting. This said, most turf is laid in a suboptimal condition.

Turf is cut in optimal condition, laid in suboptimal condition and suffers the shock of being laid in a different soil type from the one in which it was grown.

In contrast, AquaLawn takes high quality soil-matched seed and places it in ideal growing conditions for optimal healthy development.

Lawn care specialists agree that there is no substitute for AquaLawn grown in situ.

Seamless Coverage – No Gaps or Lines

Everyone can tell a newly turfed lawn and can see the joints. It can take many weeks or months to grow these lines out, and quite often additional top dressing and joint brushing is required to reduce the gaps.

These gaps are exacerbated by poor installation. When turf has been laid incorrectly it becomes dehydrated and this effects the microbial environment and increases die back; resulting in curled up edges, larger gaps and a poor quality lawn.

Unlike turf, AquaLawn is applied as a seemless blanket, with no gaps or lines, giving a perfect even coverage.

Irrigation

More turf lawns fail due to poor irrigation than for any other reason.

The frequency of watering turf is a surprise to most people. Some turf suppliers recommend that newly laid turf requires watering twice a day for the first week, then two to three times a week for the next six weeks, then once a week until it is fully established – that is a lot of watering.

With turf, the volume of water required is also surprising. It is not simply a case of wetting the grass because turf can only absorb water through it roots. In order to be effective watering is required to the full depth of the turf as a minimum and this only increases with time.

The volume of water required to irrigate an AquaLawn is far less than a turf lawn. The AquaLawn mulch enables quick rehydration and slows dehydration, as a result the seed is sustained with water at its most critical time. For example in the first week, watering is only required once per day, that’s half the requirement of turf.  Sometimes very little or no irrigation is required depending on climatic factors.

Aqualawn is the environmental choice.

Slopes, Banks and Uneven Lawns

Laying turf on banks and sloped areas can be a laborious and expensive process. Not only is this very costly, but there are significant challenges to keeping the turf fixed in position; pinning is often required making future maintenance more difficult.

Irrigating turf on slopes and banks can be very problematic. As mentioned watering is critical to turf establishment but slopes render normal watering systems ineffective making loses more likely.

AquaLawn’s unique binding agents secure the seed and growing medium directly to the soil particles. Our ability to fix seed in to position ensures optimal establishment. AquaLawn applications can be tailored to be effective on any slope or gradient.

Grass establishment is achieved without secondary pins or fixings and the area can be irrigated like any other AquaLawn installation.

AquaLawn is the only choice for slopes, banks and gardens on a gradient.
