UK Turf Prices Set to Increase

8.16am 22nd August 2011 - Corporate - This story was updated on Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Rolawn, Europe’s largest producer of cultivated turf and also recognised as Britain’s leading supplier of high quality topsoil, say that turf prices in the UK are set to increase later this year.

The reason is the sustained increase in material costs. The rise in fuel is significant as it impacts on not only haulage and distribution operations but also on turf production costs on the farm.

Further significant material costs are seed, fertiliser and pallets, all of which have also increased significantly over the last couple of years.

Paul Dawson, Rolawn’s Managing Director commented: “Rolawn have absorbed many of these rises in cost, however, there are likely to be double digit increases in the price of turf later this year. Turf growers are not immune to the impact of significant sustained increases in the cost of raw materials and producing a uniform quality turf product year round comes at a price.”
