12 May Choosing the Best Instant Turf
Installing instant turf improves the aesthetic value of your property and allows you to enjoy the outdoor areas comfortably. Choosing the right turf doesn’t have to be an ordeal. We guarantee that if you keep these tips in mind you will be able to choose the instant turf that best aligns with your preferences and environment.
Be aware of the climate in your area
Lawn grass thrives when planted in its correct climate. Some varieties grow better in cooler climates while others like warmer conditions. When choosing the grass for your lawn, it’s important to check whether it will survive under the climate conditions in your area. This also ensures that you won’t have to worry about additional maintenance issues further down the track.
Decide on the purpose of your lawn
Lawns enhance the appearance of your home, but also serve other purposes too. Some lawn varieties are suitable for gardening purposes and others will serve you well as entertaining areas for BBQs and gatherings. If you have children or pets and want them to have a great time outdoors, we suggest choosing a lawn turf variety that can withstand wear and tear and can remain in great condition even under heavy foot traffic. For instance, the Kikuyu Kenda variety is incredibly wear-resistant, making it perfect for school fields.
Check the maintenance requirements
Taking care of a lawn requires time and effort. That’s why you have to be sure that you can meet its maintenance requirements before deciding on which instant turf you’re getting. Depending on the growth rate of the grass, mowing time will vary. Grass also requires adequate irrigation, so you need to ensure there is sufficient water availability in your area to help your lawn maintain its fresh green look. If you’re living in a drought-prone area, it’s smart to choose a drought-resistant instant lawn.
