A neat and tidy lawn can significantly improve the appearance of your garden. However, it’s not always easy to achieve a level ground with a luscious bed of grass. Thankfully, it’s incredibly easy to lay down turf. There are many benefits to choosing specially grown grass over cultivating your own lawn, let’s discover more.
Maintaining A Healthy Lawn Is Hard
Grass is relatively easy to grow, but keeping it neat and tidy is actually rather difficult. Natural lawns need to be weeded regularly, treated for pests and diseases and yet still won’t always look perfect. There can be significant variation in the available number of nutrients throughout a standard lawn, therefore there can be brown or dead areas in between healthy growth.
Because turf is specially grown on nutrient-rich soil, it appears far more even and has a better distribution of nutrients.
The Different Grades Of Turf
Every garden is unique. Therefore, you’ll need to decide which type of turf your garden needs. First, consider how you will use your garden. If you have pets or children who will be playing outside, you’ll want to choose a harder-wearing turf. Gardens with harsher conditions will need to choose something with good resilience. This includes gardens with too little or too much light or water. Finally, if you have neither of these concerns and just want a good-looking garden, you can opt for a premium ornamental turf.
Real Turf Vs. Artificial
You can buy turf in both organic and artificial form. If you want something that’s almost completely maintenance-free, artificial might be the best option for you. However, it will look artificial and doesn’t have the same feeling as real grass. Real turf offers all the benefits of a natural lawn, with the added bonus of having evenly distributed nutrients and an even appearance.
