Not happy to stop there, the innovation continues.

We are building on Turf Tick II but adding integrated telemetry & diagnosis (Turf Tick III)
We have are very happy to highlight our partnership with Dutch equipment manufacturers to innovate in turf harvesting technology.
We have devised an agreed specification for a fully automated self-stacking harvester for 2020 delivery, which we will call... "Turf Tick II"
5 in 1: five stadiums in one season
2015 was a busy season for football renovations, we refreshed 5 premiership pitches in the end of season window.
Just before the last ball is kicked in the season we are mobilising our team and equipment into position to renovate stadium pitches and training grounds in that short window before it all starts again with pre-season.
Having the range of equipment and "strong players coming off the bench" brings value to the clubs.
Hybrid Turf Innovation
As innovators in hybrid surfaces, we developed our turf capabilities with comprehensive trials at our hybrid turf fields to fully understand the latest technology in sports surfaces.
Supply to the Millenium Stadium Cardiff (now Principality Stadium)
We supplied turf from our Milford turf fields for the resurfacing of the national football and rugby ground in Cardiff.
Our team were particularly proud to be covered in the Eddie Stobart video of the occasion.
1 MILLION square metres of turf!
Talbots invested in additional land at Milford bringing their capacity up to 1 million square metres of turf production.
That's enough to renovate 140 football pitches (or 83 times Trafalgar Square, if we get asked to do it again!)
Investment in Turf Production
Talbots invested in further land at their Allestree turf fields, (North of Derby) to increase the turf production capacity of the from their Midlands hub.
New Land for Cultivated Turf
Talbots purchase land north of Derby at Allestree to prepare cultivated turf to the increased demand from the nations landscapers and sports surfaces.
End of an era at the Baseball Ground
We supported Derby County FC to reuse the hallowed turf from the Baseball Ground at the Oakwood Training Facility respectful of the many fans who had spread their ashes on the pitch.
New century, more investment
We purchased more land at Milford (near Derby), growing our capability to service the turf supply market across the UK.
Talbots cultivating turf
The talbots team started growing its own cultivated turf.
Our first lorry
We invested in our first lorry to supply turf to local customers.
We now have a fleet of different lorries to supply short and longer distances and different delivery restrictions.
Our delivery routes have extended to nationwide now.
Talbot Turf was founded
With a heritage in agriculture and horticulturally trained, we saw the opportunity to supply turf in the Derby area and founded Talbot Turf.
