The average sized lawn in Scotland is 60 square metres. But that’s not to say that there are no enormous lawns and no tiny ones. Stewarts Turf manage orders from one or two rolls of turf to four or more lorry loads.
Small turf orders
If you need to order a small amount of turf, Stewarts Turf can help. If the order is below 15 square metres we would ask you to organise collection from our yard in Edinburgh.
Simply call the Stewarts Turf office on 0333 456 0019 or 0131 663 6617.
Let us know how much turf you’d like and when you want it.
Collection will be from our yard

How much turf can I fit into my car?
Turf is heavy and bulky. On average one roll (1 roll = 1 square metre) weighs 16Kg – more if it’s wet. So find out from your car manufacturer how much weight the vehicle can cope with.
Next think about the physical size of the turves. When they are unrolled, each turf measures 610mm wide by 1640 mm long. Rolled up, each roll is 610mm (24 inches) long by about 300mm high (10-12 inches)
Will they fit into the boot of your car?
Remember too that turf is dirty. It will leave a layer of damp soil and grass in your car so please remember to protect the upholstery with a layer of waterproof material.
We don’t mind if you make more than one visit to collect your turf but you might want to think about hiring or borrowing a van or a pick-up truck to make your life easier.
Minimum order size for delivery
If you would like your turf delivered to site, the smallest delivery size we can normally arrange for you is 15 square metres – or 15 rolls. That’s because the haulage costs on small loads are just not cost effective. Not for you and not for us.
You can order delivered turf online from our website. The transaction will be 100% secure and of course it can be done at any time of the day or night. You don’t need to wait for us to be in the office.
If you prefer to order by phone, that’s a great opportunity to ask us any questions about buying or laying your turf. Our phone number is 0333 456 0019 and we’re in the office every weekday between 7am and 4pm
