how did lawns become a status symbol

It's hard to believe that once upon a time, only the rich and famous could afford to have a lawn. Nowadays, most family homes have a garden, and if they don't, there's usually a communal park or green area only a short walk away.

Hundreds of years ago, having a lawn at the front of your property was a status symbol (much like having the latest iPhone is today) but not many people know why lawns were so symbolic of status.

For example, if you want a hardy turf that can be used on sporting grounds, a cultivated turf that's made of hard-wearing grass species is the way to go. Lawn specialists will select the right species and care for them until they're mature and well-established, this improves the chances of the turf surviving once it's been laid.
