My feeling is that the ground was not consolidated enough before turf laying.

Matthew send a letter and email to those who laid the turf.  Still comtinue to ring them.  This will establish thst you were dissatisfied from the start. Get them to come back and assess the situation.

however, walking on newly laid turf is a bad idea.  Dont do that.

A few years back a neighbour.....tenant there...had a  leylandii growing too near my boundary wall.  So one day, armed with a sharp saw, I went over and cut it down.  Prob 9' tall but thin stem. glad I did.  Another, much further away, grew huge and ultimately needed a tree surgeon.  

Not recommended but effective .  Wouldnt you like to be my neighbour?

You dont say which varieties but growing in pots they prob need a topping up of fresh compost.  You prob have the dwarf types that I think often look better without flowers esp if pruned to dome shape.
