There are many health and environmental benefits that grass provides. As compared to bare ground and other artificial types of turf, grass can reduce the surrounding temperatures by 15° C. This temperature reduction can ease heavy electricity bills and increase comfort within your home. Grass also absorbs carbon dioxide and other poisonous gasses and converts them to oxygen. It is also very effective in converting most of pollutants into harmless organic compounds that make the soil more fertile.
If you are planning on making your lawn greener, there are some important things that you need to consider to ensure that you get the best lawn with a good appearance. The following is a simple process that you can use to install turf in your lawn.
Preparation of soil
This is the first thing that you need to do before installing turf. Turf requires a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. You can buy soil pH kits and herbicides in order to prepare the soil.
If the area needs to excavated, it is important to ensure that the area is clean and free from grasses or weeds. You can hire a bobcat if you have a larger area that cannot be excavated by hand.
Top soil addition
You can purchase top soil from landscape supply yards or from your local nursery. Use a rake to spread the top soil over the area on which you will be installing the turf. The depth of the top soil should be between 100- 150mm. It is also important to add some fertiliser if it is not already included in the top soil.
The next thing that you need to do is to hire a cultivator to work on the depth of the ground. Use a rake or a leveling tool to smooth the surface.
As turf is a living plant, it is very important that it is delivered the day you want to lay it down. You should begin watering it after 30 minutes of installation more so during summer seasons. This greatly improves the appearance of your lawn or yard once it has fully grown. Regular maintenance is required to ensure that it remains in good condition.
