The satisfaction with installation of new turf on your garden or elsewhere depends both on the quality of the product itself and on the expertise of those who are doing the installation. Installers must have the knowledge and experience to ensure that the customer is satisfied with the results of the installation. The expectation is that the turf will last two decades or more and will still look great at the end of its lifetime. This means no wear, curling or fading of the ‘grass’.
The difficulty with natural turf is that it tends to grow unevenly, there may even be bare patches where animals dug holes or buried bones. Urine and feces can also be strong enough to leave yellow or brown patches where the turf has been killed. No matter how meticulously you attend to mowing and trimming, grass grows and can look unkempt. Runners will extend into flower beds and other plantings, so the edges look uneven or ragged. Grass can take over sidewalks and pathways. This adds to the unsightly appearance of your entire property.
The care of a natural lawn can be expensive. Not only do you have the cost of preparing the area where the seed will be sown, but care must be taken to avoid stressing the young plants until they are well started. Regular watering and fertilization is essential. Unless you want animal runs and people walkways to pack down areas of the grass and kill it off, you may have to install fencing.
Once the grass is well-established, it can be negatively affected by shady areas, improper drainage patterns and introduction of unwanted weeds or other varieties of grass. Unless you particularly like dandelions, they are likely to become a nuisance when they are blooming as well as when they go to seed. Of course, ensuring that the grass doesn’t grow shaggy is another problem. No one wants to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon mowing. Then there are annual chores such as mulching, raking leaves and fertilizing. Unless you live in a rainy area, it is likely that you will need to spend money ensuring that your garden gets enough water in the right spots.
