Sherborne Turf was established in 1972, and what started as a family business supplying the local area with turf has grown steadily to encompass all aspects of gardening while maintaining its traditional values of quality and service.

Situated in the picturesque village of Trent in Dorset, we have around 150 acres of quality farmland dedicated to the production of our Trent Turf, grown without the help of netting that can pose a trip hazard and be costly to remove. Instead we use a blend of grasses developed over the years that will knit together to form a firm base, and leave our turf in the ground for 18 months before harvesting. It is then cut to order and delivered using our own vehicles. While the trade standard for delivery is ‘kerb-side’, we realise that this is not always practical for our customers, and so our experienced drivers always endeavour to place the items as conveniently as possible for you, a service which is often not provided by other companies.

Although our core business is turf production, we also supply a full range of locally sourced topsoil, compost, bark and mulch. Other essential garden items include fertiliser, irrigation equipment, landscape accessories, and a full range of seed mixes to grow wildflowers and grasses for companion sowing.

As a progressive company, we are aware that businesses need to adapt to accommodate the changing needs of their customers, and we are continually looking at ways to achieve this. To further develop Sherborne Turf, building work is underway on new premises at Queen Thorne Crossroads on the Marston road out of Sherborne. This will give us a wonderful opportunity to fully extend our range of products and services, making us more accessible for our customers.

All of the staff here at Sherborne Turf have experience of the products we sell, and are happy to discuss any aspect of your garden project. Our website contains detailed information, practical advice, and even has an interactive calculator. We are also on Facebook and Twitter, or why not give us a call on 01935 850388.
