SuDS and Slopes

SuDS and Slopes is a blend of 34 native wildflowers and grasses that enjoy a low maintenance care regime. Strongly rooted grasses aid soil stabilisation whilst flowering plants bring an extra layer of attractiveness.

Ideal for a slopes, banks, damp soils and the margins of ponds, streams or ‘Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems’ (SuDS), SuDS and Slopes offers a real boost to biodiversity. Insects, amphibians, small mammals and birds truly appreciate this wonderful source of food and shelter. And because it needs no chemical treatments, artificial fertilisers or frequent cutting it creates wonderful wildlife habitat.

Key Points

    • Perennial plants – no need to over-seed, repopulate or replant (unless you want to).
    • Very easy to install – the ground stabilising blanket is pre-populated with living plants. Simply unroll, peg down, water and walk away. Keep irrigated until plants are well established.
    • Quick to establish. The combination of our matting system and choice of vigorous rooting plants will immediately start to stabilise soil on banks and slopes.
    • High proportion of flowering plants compared with rush or sedge based stabilisation solutions.
    • Flowering Time: May – July (depending on local weather conditions).

SuDS and Slopes is mown before despatch to minimise damage to plants. It will not be in flower when it is delivered.

  • A standard roll of SuDS and Slopes covers 1 square metre of prepared soil and weights up to 25Kg. So, we recommend having two people to install it. Larger rolls may be provided by special request. Please call us for more information.
  • Your SuDS and Slopes will change appearance from year to year. The species mix is influenced by microclimate, weather conditions and the creatures that visit regularly. It’s a truly biodiverse and adaptable product.

What is SuDS and Slopes?

The Meadowmat® range of products from Turfonline are landscaping materials used to establish dense planting very quickly. Some would describe Meadowmat® as a flower garden on a roll, however we think it’s much more than that. And SuDS and Slopes is a prime example.

SuDS and Slopes combines the needs of engineers with those of ecologists. A layer of biodegradable geotextile (coir based) allows fast “planting” and establishment of a diverse mix of plant species. SuDS and Slopes starts working from the moment it is unrolled and its effects continue to improve. The planted layer immediately reduces any erosion from rainfall and as roots establish and develop the soil is further stabilised. At the same time, the vegetation attracts and supports a wide range of fauna.

The maintenance regime for SuDS and Slopes is uncomplicated and fits easily with Health and Safety practice. Simply mow once a year and remove all of the clippings. All species in SuDS and Slopes are non-toxic. This product lends itself to grazing by sheep, goats, geese or other animals – it’s a wonderful conservation product.

Detailed information on installing and maintaining SuDS and Slopes is available in the knowledgebase section of our website.

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.
Some of our Wildflower products do contain a Biodegradable reinforcement net for stability.
Can you take my pallet away? Unfortunately not - please can you reuse or recycle.
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.
How tall does Meadowmat grow? - This depends on the variety. A flowering height of 30-90cm is common. All of our wildflower products are trimmed prior to despatch to protect the plants from damage in transit. The height at despatch is approximately 10cm. For more information about specific varieties visit the product page on our website.

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.
