When it comes to choosing turf for your garden, cultivated turf is especially favourable. Why? Because cultivated turf is grown in fields and cared for using specialist equipment. Turf specialists select the best turf seeds and species for their crop so the resulting turf has desirable qualities. The resulting turf can then be harvested for use elsewhere.
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.
What are the benefits of cultivated turf?
- Cultivated turf is less likely to contain weeds
- Cultivated turf can be grown to suit your specifications & needs
- Cultivated turf has been looked after properly & has a higher chance of establishing
Questions to ask yourself before choosing turf:
- Do you have pets or children that will be playing on it?
- What type of lawnmower do you have?
- How much time do you have for maintenance?
- Do you want your lawn to look a certain way?
If you're someone with a lot of time on your hands, you might be able to cope with the demands of a beautiful cultivated lawn. However, if you've got limited time for garden maintenance & you know your lawn will be trampled by pets and children, a cheaper turf variety might be better for you.
Should you choose artificial turf?
When you research different types of lawns, artificial turf is sure to crop up - but is it a good alternative to natural turf? In our opinion, no. It's harder to maintain, requiring regular, professional cleaning to get rid of nasty smells. It's bad for the environment & won't help wildlife in your area thrive, and it's generally more expensive! Real grass provides oxygen for our environment & is an all-around better choice if you want to add a green area to your outdoor space.
