grass dew

Have you ever gone for an early morning stroll when the sun is shining, walked across a lawn, field or patch of turf and realised that the grass is wet?

Well, that's known as 'morning dew' and appears on grass early in the mornings or late at night when the right weather conditions are present.

In this blog, we take a closer look at dew and answer the age-old question 'why is grass wet in the morning'. 

So, without further adew (pun intended), let's get into it...

As the old saying goes, "if you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail" and the same applies to your ground when planning to lay turf or sowing seed!

Ensuring your soil is properly prepared before laying any new turf or sowing seed is absolutely vital to the health and success of your lawn, so to make sure no mistakes are made, Lawn & Weed Expert are here to walk you through the process step-by-step. 

So, what are we waiting for, let's get into how to prepare your ground for seeding or turfing! 


turf vs seed

If you've made the decision to add a new lawn to your garden, first of all, great choice! Lawns are a fantastic addition to any outdoor space, bringing a range of benefits for both you and the surrounding environment. However, now that you've decided on adding a lawn, the next big decision to make is how are you going to lay it?

Do you choose to buy ready-made turf that only requires you to roll it out onto your soil or do you seed sow your lawn from scratch? This can be a pretty tough choice to make with a lot of things to consider. So, to make things a little easier for you, in this blog we dive into both methods of adding a lawn to your garden, looking at the pros and cons of each, helping you to make the best decision for you. 

So, let's dive right into it and take a deeper look at the age-old debate of turf vs seed.


Blades of Grass

If you're a novice when it comes to lawn care - or, more specifically, growing a new lawn from seed - you may find yourself asking the question "how many blades of grass grow one seed?"

This is a far more common question than you may think and one that carries a certain weight of importance when it comes to growing the perfect, lush green lawn.

So, if you're in the process of growing a new lawn or are just curious to know, we take a look at this very question right here in this blog!
