SuDS Turf

This Wildflower Turf solution has been designed by our research and development department, using our experience with the installation of Wildflower Turf in Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems within the UK and liaising with Landscape and Ecology professionals.

The species selected, have been chosen to assist in the breakup of pan or soil compaction for maximum water dispersal, whilst remaining established in times of drought or periodic flooding. This solution remains aesthetically and environmentally pleasing, introducing improved biodiversity with very low maintenance required.

This turf has been developed by the company using its unique ‘soil-less’ system that is more drought tolerant than other more conventional methods.

The turf is made up of 37 different species of wildflowers and grasses, subject to seed availability, with a minimum of 50% wildflowers.

To produce this environmentally beneficial product, every effort is made to source sustainable ingredients, for example composted green waste and organic nutrients, as well as carefully monitoring all inputs such as electricity and water. The turf naturally produces a bio-diverse habitat supporting birds, mammals, bees, butterflies and other invertebrate species.

As we begin to write our November blog during Lockdown 2.0, our thoughts stray to the need for a holiday and a change of scene! And what better place to staycation than the glorious Peak District?

Having previously worked with luxury lodge specialists, Darwin Escapes to enhance their Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat site in Cumbria as well as several others, we have recently helped to create a stunning wildflower haven at their newly opened Rivendale Lodge Retreat.
