Paynes’ turf installed at St Paul’s Cathedral

One of London’s most famous and recognisable sights, St Paul’s Cathedral, has had its surrounding gardens returfed with Paynes Turf’s Premium Grade Turf. The internationally renowned Cathedral attracts millions of visitors each year owing to its awe-inspiring architecture and historical significance in British identity, having held services such as the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer, Jubilee celebrations for Queen Victoria, and peace services marking the end of the First and Second World Wars. As a result, the Cathedral’s stunning landscaped areas are exposed to year-round heavy footfall and require occasional renovation – for which Paynes’ exceptionally high quality and durable turf is ideal.

Paynes’ Premium Grade Turf boasts an all year round thick green sward and is renowned amongst landscapers for its ability to retain a fine appearance, even when installed in places that are prone to greater levels of pedestrian traffic. The hardwearing turf is also easy to maintain, which makes it ideal for commercial projects such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, as John Payne, Partner at Paynes Turf explained:

“We use our own seed mixtures to create an outstanding quality turf that’s suitable for a wide range of applications, from national landmarks to gardens and parks. As much of our business relies on recommendations and our reputation, it’s very important that the turf we grow is not only up to the job, but exceeds our customers’ expectations. That’s why our clients like our Premium Grade Turf – its durable, looks great throughout the year, and is easy to maintain.”

To ensure that the turf was as fresh as possible upon installation, harvesting took place the day before delivery and the turf was then transported directly to St Paul’s Cathedral via one of Paynes’ own vehicles. “We’ve always been keen to provide a delivery service that our customers can rely on, which is why we operate our own fleet of vehicles. It allows us to offer a consistently speedy, reliable and personal service, and to deliver as close to the site of installation as humanly possible, saving time and hassle for our customers,” concluded Mr. Payne.
