Shadesman+ Turf

Hardwearing, slow-growing and shade-tolerant, Shadesman+ turf is the ideal groundcover for gardens where trees, fences or buildings cast their shadows for part of the day.

Shadesman+ is the result of decades of careful seed selection and plant breeding. Starting with the wild grasses that spend most of their year under the snow of alpine meadows, Shadesman+ Turf has been refined, improved and domesticated to become a well behaved and beautiful lawn grass. The Turfonline team has further developed it to create an easy to use turf that looks good and thrives in sun or partial shade.

Why choose Shadesman+?

The greatest thing about Shadesman+ turf is that it looks and feels just like a normal lawn but that won’t lose its colour or its vigour in low light conditions. Another of its charms is that it grows relatively slowly. Expect to mow around 50% less frequently than our budget grade turf. High shoot density means that a lawn made with Shadesman+ will be thick, luxurious and very hard-wearing due to the shade tolerant nature of the grass.

Each roll of turf covers 1 square metre of prepared soil. We strongly recommend using a pre-turfing fertiliser with Shadesman+ turf

Please note: Shadesman+ turf will not perform well in the deepest shade. In areas that receive sunlight for less than half the day, you may need to over-seed once a year with our Shadesman+ seed . If you have previously purchased Shadesman Turf prior to 2022 our Shadesman seed would be more suitable.

What’s in Shadesman+ Turf?

  • 50% Poa Supina
  • 50% Poa Pratensis

Coverage

Each roll of Shadesman+ Turf measures 610mm (24″) wide by 1,640mm (64.5″) long and covers 1m².

Our original Shadesman seed contained 100% supernova POA Supina Seeds whereas our new Shadesman plus is a mix of 50% Supernova POA Supina Seed and 50% POA Pratensis seed. By adding an additional species we have improved the drought and shade tolerance, whilst also improving the year-round colour of the previous mix.
Order enough and then some - With the season on the point of kicking off – although there was snow this morning - we have had a spate of enquiries and orders recently for turf and wildflower turf. This is a good thing, but I think I should add in a bit of advice. Firstly, please, please, please measure very carefully. Make sure that you have added in at least 5% extra to cover all the edges and extra bits that you will need. Our website has a turf calculator to help you work out exactly how much you will need. BUT, and it’s a big BUT – please remember that it is always better to have some turf left over rather than having to order more. Our turf is delivered on pallets so having to order extra turf as a new order will mean new harvest, new transport and a new delivery cost. Adding an extra roll of turf to your order to make sure you have enough is always going to be cheaper than having to order more. Adding an extra roll is always going to be more cost-effective. Otherwise, all the usual rules apply – please lay your turf on the day it arrives. If you’re working with wildflower turf, it’s a lot easier with two people and please focus on watering once your turf is down. Wee can help with all of these – there are tools here on the website to help along with advice on looking after your new lawn or Meadowmat wildflower meadow.
All of our lawn turf is grown without the use of plastic reinforcing mesh. Some of our Wildflower and Sedum products contain a reinforcing mesh. This is a technical aspect of the product and aids its long-term stability in certain growing situations. All of the products we grow use sustainable, responsibly sourced materials.
You can walk on the turf once it is rooted well. You can check this by gently lifting the edges.
Can you take my pallet away? Unfortunately not - please can you reuse or recycle.
What size is a roll of turf  - Our Jubilee and Garden Lawn rolls measure 610 mm x 1640 mm, each roll covers 1 square metre of prepared ground. Each roll of Shadesman+ Turf also measures 610mm (24") x 1640mm (64.5") long and covers 1 square metre.
What time will my delivery be made? The anytime service can be delivered between 8am and 8pm. There are a number of upgrade options available at the checkout.
Bulky items like Turf, Topsoil and Wildflower Turf can be delivered Tuesday to Friday. We can also offer deliveries on Saturdays for an additional charge. For orders placed before 10am we can even offer a next day delivery. Please select your preferred delivery date from the available dates during the checkout process. This is dependent on the delivery postcode.
What delivery services do you offer? - Standard all day delivery is included in the price for most areas of the UK. There are surcharges for some areas and options to upgrade to timed services for an additional cost.
We offer kerbside delivery, so pallets are usually left on the road to the front of your property. We can occasionally deliver to your driveway if it is flat, level and a solid surface, and if the kerb is dropped enough for a pallet truck to roll over it whilst fully loaded.

Your Delivery

Turf Online aims to give its customers the best possible experience by delivering the best quality products for sale in the UK. Therefore, all our perishable products are harvested fresh to order the day before delivery, and we even accept orders for next-day delivery!

Delivery charges and services vary by different types of turf and delivery location. Charges are confirmed at checkout before payment. If your order includes grass turf, topsoil, Wildflower Turf or Sedum mats, you can choose your delivery day. You should arrange for live products to be delivered on the day you will lay them. Reducing the amount of time the product is stored means significantly less potential nuisance when it comes to installation; certain issues will not have had a chance to rise. All other products are delivered within 5 working days (or usually sooner!).

How Is Your Product Delivered?

We recommend that you only make arrangements for tradespeople to carry out work on your behalf after your turf or other products have been delivered.

PLEASE NOTE: Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum Mats and bulk Bag products are delivered on a pallet and can only be delivered to the kerbside. 

Most of our products for sale in the UK will be delivered by being transported by a pallet courier that primarily uses 18-tonne rigid trucks that are built for reaching the majority of UK addresses. However, it is possible that your delivery could be made on a larger vehicle. If access or other restrictions prevent vehicles above a certain size reaching your address, or there are other offloading or parking restrictions which could affect the delivery, let us know in the delivery notes section of checkout so that special delivery arrangements can be made. Please make sure you double check the delivery postcode and address carefully as after your order has been shipped, it is likely we will not be able to make any amendments to your order or address.

Delivery is unloaded using a manual pallet trolley which is lowered to the road by the tail lift on the truck. Unfortunately, we do not offer Hiab (truck-mounted crane) deliveries. To offload the pallet, the surface must be flat and level. Since Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum and topsoil can be heavy, and the pallet trolley pulled by the driver has small wheels, pallets cannot be delivered onto soil, grass or gravel – a tarmac or paved surface is required.

Kerbside delivery means that our products for sale in the UK is delivered as close as possible to the delivery address you provide. Our helpful drivers will do their best to place your delivery where you wish, such as a driveway, but this is at their discretion. If your delivery address is hard to find or the property is a new build, consider using what3words to pinpoint your delivery location. More information on what3words can be found in our Help Centre.

For more information on how The Pallet Network delivers our different types of products, please watch this short video.

What Issues Could Arise With Delivery?

If your product delivery cannot be made due to a reason you failed to make us aware of, the full cost of distribution and products will still be charged to you. We are proud that most of our turf deliveries arrive on time. Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control (extreme weather, road accidents, vehicle breakdowns or IT failures) can delay delivery, but we will make every effort to keep you updated in such an event.
