So you’re looking for a new lawn? You’re about to embark on what is an exciting but often confusing adventure.
Turf is available for purchase from a number of sources and with variations in grass type, price and size. The main sources from which to get your new lawn turf and their different benefits are:
Local turf growers
- Turf is grown under local conditions and is suitable to the local climate
- The turf can be cut and delivered as required reducing the time in which the root system can dry out
- Competitive pricing with turf supplier by the producer
- Turf supplied with expert advice and support
Local turf supplier or resellers
- Turf is available locally
- Comes with advice and support
Multinational hardware chains
- Available locally
The downside of buying a new lawn through a multinational hardware chain is that the turf is often cut and delivered to the store in advance. This process runs the risk that the root system has time to dry out prior to installation and will then struggle to establish and thrive. Buying your new lawn through this option always drastically reduces the amount of expert advice and support you will receive. Often you will deal only with a hardware store-person. When purchasing the turf for your new lawn through a local turf grower or turf supplier you will be able to gain expert advice on issues such as lawn variety selection, soil preparation, lawn installation or how we install a new lawn as well as establishment tips and maintenance advice.
