Traditional

Traditional is a blend of 31 native wildflowers and 3 grasses typically found in an old fashioned hay meadow.

Ideal for a sunny spot where low maintenance and lots of biodiversity combine to create a relaxed feel. Prefer a more manicured look? Then, keep the edges trimmed and mow paths through your Traditional Meadowmat® to give a more formal appearance.

Key Points

  • The majority of plant species in Traditional are perennial. That means that if they are happy in your garden they will grow back year after year.
  • Flowering Time: May – July (depending on local weather conditions).
  • Meadowmat® is mown before despatch to minimise damage to plants. It will not be in flower when it is delivered.
  • For flowers in its first season, install Traditional Meadowmat® before the end of March to allow plants to establish.
  • A standard roll of Traditional covers 1 square metre of prepared soil and weights up to 25Kg. We recommend having two people to install it.
  • The balance of plant species is affected by soil type, management, pollinator populations and local climatic conditions. Your Traditional Meadowmat® will change appearance from year to year, which is one of the reasons we love it so much.

What is Meadowmat®?

If you’re not familiar with Meadowmat®, it’s an innovative landscaping material that allows you to establish dense planting very quickly. More reliable than seeding and less time consuming than plug-planting, Meadowmat® can only be described as a flower garden on a roll. It’s installed and established just like grass turf but needs less ongoing maintenance than a lawn.

Maintaining Traditional Meadowmat® requires a different approach to any other type of gardening. Fertilisers and pesticides can stay in the shed – you won’t be needing those. Neither will you need your lawn mower. Meadowmat® can be left to grow unchecked between March and August. At the end of summer it is cut back to a height of 10 – 15 cm and all vegetation is removed. Mow once or twice in Autumn to remove excess growth and leave over winter and your Traditional Meadowmat® will naturally start growing when the soils warm up in spring.

For more detailed information on installing and maintaining Traditional Meadowmat please visit our Help Centre on our website.

Growing Traditional Meadowmat® – Soil and Aspect

Traditional Meadowmat® prefers to grow in full sun and moist, but well drained low fertility soil. So, it is happy on level surfaces or slopes. Happiest in a fairly neutral pH but will tolerate all but the most acidic or alkaline soils.

We strongly recommend installing Meadowmat® onto our Low Fertility Soil as the high nutrient content of “normal” garden soil tends to skew the balance of grasses to flowering plants in Traditional Meadowmat® and you may find that the resulting display is less colourful.

What’s In Traditional Meadowmat®?

Please note, percentages refer to the weight of the seed in the growing mix and do not necessarily reflect the proportions of mature plants.

20% native grasses

To help prevent soil drying out, provide shelter for insects, food for birds and perches for butterflies:

Perishable living products should be installed on the day of delivery. In the unlikely event that your product does not arrive in good condition please get in touch immediately with photos showing the issue.

The actual percentage of each species contained may vary due to environmental factors. Turfonline makes every effort to ensure wildflower products are free from weeds and pests, however due to the natural way in which these products are grown we cannot guarantee they are 100% pest  free on delivery. It is unlikely that you will see every species that is listed. The variation of species present has been developed to suit a wide variety of soils and environmental conditions. This will result in a product that will adapt to individual settings which may mean some species are more successful than others. Contains annual and perennial species.  If installed after March many species may not flower during the first year.

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.
