Maintaining the quality of your lawn turf, or in fact any aspect of the garden, like most other things in life, requires a degree of tender loving care and a great deal of attention. To keep its fresh and luscious green appearance there are rituals that must be faithfully adhered to.
In your garden, appearance is everything but simply watching and waiting for the turf or the grass to deliver the goods simply won’t work. Season by season, you, the garden’s caretaker, with a little help perhaps from your local turf suppliers must keep careful watch and coax the best from the seeds and plants that you have planted.
Maybe, this year, you are planning a complete overhaul of your garden areas. If so, each stage will need to be carefully thought through and this is the time to consult your local garden centre, or if you are intending to lay new turf, it is perhaps crucial that you liaise and work closely with a quality lawn turf supplier.
There is much to learn and be aware of in order for your gardening project to be a complete success and even when all your preparations have been meticulous, there are other factors beyond your control that may often conspire against you. The weather! You need to be well equipped for every circumstance and every weather condition and certainly need a backup plan when the rain simply refuses to fall at the right time.
So, if it is a re-turf that you are planning, when should you consider getting the job done? Well, weather conditions are everything, as it is with gardening in general. We would suggest that in an ideal world, you should be thinking about laying your new lawn turf in either the spring months or the autumn months, when there is (hopefully) plenty of moisture about and the temperatures are not too extreme.
In some climates, of course, it is possible to lay turf at almost any time of the year, but you always run the risk of things being too dry in the summer and too cold in the winter, where, either way, the soil simply won’t be in the required condition for your turf to successfully establish, leaving you with wasted turf, wasted money and the job still to do when the weather is a bit kinder.
Before all of that, there is the small matter of ensuring you choose the right turf for your requirements. You might be looking for a new surface for your sports field or you may be seeking to freshen up the garden. However, even in the garden, it is imperative that you know what you will be using the garden for. Will it just be a display lawn, intended for decoration, or will it be a lawn that will see lots of activity from an army of kids playing on the top of it.
We, at turf supplies direct, are able to guide you professionally towards the right sort of turf for your garden and we are happy to work closely with you so that you can be confident that the right decision has been made.
So, for example, if you are looking for a turf that will be suitable for the back garden, a place where the kids will play, where you might host a barbeque or two, then we would point you in the direction of our family lawn turf. It’s perfectly suited for high usage, meaning that if taken care of properly, it can easily withstand all the of the wear and tear you might associate with kids running around the garden playing ball games or the many feet present at a barbeque. This is an extremely popular turf, for obvious reasons, so we ensure that we have plenty in stock at all times.
Alternatively, you may be working on a tight budget, as many of us are, and need pretty decent quality turf without paying too much for it. Our value turf is always popular for these very reasons and is very versatile and could suitably be used for a domestic garden, which may or may not be used frequently or even for commercial landscaping areas. Not only is this particular lawn turf friendly on the wallet, it’s also quick to establish and very low maintenance.
Of course, if you are really not sure what kind of turf will suit your requirements best, members of our friendly team will always glad to speak to you and work out what you will need, how much you will need and when you will need it. We really believe that the best results come from a great working relationship between customers and turf suppliers.
Once you have finally got to the stage where your new turf has been laid, this is when all sorts of other considerations need to come into effect. Watering and feeding and general overall maintenance to ensure that your new lawn is successfully established will keep you busy over the following days, weeks and months.
Perhaps watering will be the most crucial of these tasks and it’s probably fair to say that your turf will indeed need plenty of manual watering (unless the heavens open for days on end) until establishment is complete. Ensuring that enough moisture gets through is vital for a healthy lawn.
Fertilising or feeding the lawn is another important aspect and you should probably consider doing this twice a year, with spring and autumn once again being the best seasons to complete this task. As always, members of our team will be on hand to discuss which fertilisers you should be using and the best times to use them. There are a range of suitable fertilisers that can be purchased directly through the turf supplies direct website.
Although there are lots of decisions to be made, regarding products and timings, watching your garden transform into exactly what you had planned for it, is both fun and extremely rewarding and if you need support from your turf suppliers, you know where we are.
