[Rheinfelden] Garden Question
 
I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but does anyone know a good place to buy turf (preferably in the Rheinfelden area)?

Do you mean turf, as in sod (you know - grass by the meter;) ), or do you mean turf as in Torf as in peat?

If the second, any garden center will have it - comes in big 75 litre bags. If the former, start by asking at a garden center - if they can't help you they will probably direct you to someone who can, like a landscape or Gartenbau firm.

A good place to start looking for garden stuff in your area is:

Put in your canton, town or plz, and the type of firm you are looking for.

I've never seen turf in Switzerland. Even landscape garden firms near to me seem to always sow lawns from seed.

It would probably be a reasonable guess that even if you did find turf in Switzerland then it would be ludicrously expensive.

On a positive note, late August / early September is a good time to sow a lawn from seed!

a gardening firm will do you some rolls of grass; my neighbour <spit> had turf laid in his garden.

My dog has dug some huge holes in our garden that I'm going to have to fix before we leave. I was wondering where I could get some turf to make the necessary repairs.

I've been trying to get turf for a while but it appears to be a yet another closed shop i.e. the only place in Switzerland I could find would only sell to registered gardening firms and they hike the rpice to a silly figure. I did enquire in Germany but crossing the border with turf appears to be a no no.

Anyhoo, now is a very good time to level off the holes and put some new seed down - if you can keep pooch off it over the winter it will fix things by the spring.
