How to choose the right kind of natural turf

Now when you think of the world garden, the likelihood is that one of the very first things that come into your head is a sweeping stretch of grass that covers the majority of the open space and provides a pleasant place to walk, sit and play with family and friends. And the majority of people would agree with you that in they would expect to see a vibrant a perky lawn that seems to sweep on further than the physical boundaries of the garden itself when done correctly. So it’s pretty baffling to us that while people consider this a really important part of their garden, but people seem so lax when it comes to maintaining your lawn?

We understand that with the preexisting work and family commitments that take up a considerable amount of your spare time, you don’t exactly want to add monumental heap of mowing and fertilizing work on top of that. So a good alternative if this sounds like you would be to look into having your existing lawn completely replaced with natural turf, which combines the great look and feel of natural grass with the easy management of artificial turf. However, most people are not aware of just how much thought you should ideally be putting into this choice, so we’ve compiled a few tips on how to get the most suitable lawn for your money.

Species

It could be too fast growing for your liking it could be too coarse for your children to play on, so a decent amount of consideration needs to be put into this.

As completely tedious as this sounds, it would be a complete waste of time and money to get an entirely new lawn only to find it grows like wildfire and is too rough for your children to even walk barefoot on. You may then want to consider giving each species that is offered by your supplier a quick search on Google and it will be easy to find plenty of reliable information on what the grass is, where it comes from and how suitable it is for different kinds of lawns. If all else fails then it could be a good idea to talk to your supplier about their recommendations, which brings us to our next point.
