Finding the Right Lawn For Your Home
Which lawn turf will best suit you, your family and your home? Deciding is easy when you shop with the experts at Hi Quality Turf. Here are a few important things you will need to keep in mind when considering the types of grass for your home:
- How much SHADE does the area receive?
Your options may be limited by the amount of shade your area receives. If your garden is exposed to extended periods of shade then buffalo grass is a great variety for you. However if shade is not a difficulty there are a number of other turf variety solutions. Please note; all varieties will grow in full sun including those varieties that are shade tolerant.
- How much WEAR and USAGE will your lawn endure?
If you have a highly used area that will endure continuous ware, you’re best to choose a turf grass or buffalo grass. These durable varieties are designed to tolerate this type of situation. There are many lawn varieties that boast durability.
- Consider your PETS and CHILDREN’S treatment and use of the area
You don’t want your pets or children leaving a lasting impression on your new lawn. Blemishes like bike tracks and holes are bad looks. When you’re making a decision about your lawn, remember to consider hard-wearing varieties. Buffalo grass may be the answer or you might need a turf grass that will recover quickly from damage. Another factor you may need to take into account is allergies or any sensitivity your family may have.
- How much TIME (if any) you would like to spend MAINTAINING your lawn?
If envious neighbours are your objective, then you may be meticulous when it comes to the maintenance and upkeep of your lawn. On the other hand you may be the brown thumb type and lawn maintenance is not your thing. Choosing the right turf grass means you will get the most out of your lawn.
- What is your BUDGET?
Your budget is another important factor when choosing a turf grass variety. Consider things like maintenance, costs, and water usage. Choose your lawn wisely and think about all the contributing factors, as it may end up costing you more in the long run if poor decisions are made.
