How thick is the turf cut?
Turf is made up of three components, soil, thatch and the sward.
- The thatch or the fibrous part is between 5 and 15mm.
- The soil on the back of the turf is between 5 and 15mm.
- The sward or cutting height of the grass is generally no more than 35mm.
When preparing an area for turf to ensure a level run off onto a patio or driveway you should allow for a turf thickness of 12 to 20mm
