Turf: In a nutshell, turf is the most expensive option because you are essentially paying someone else for the time and materials to cultivate the lawn. And it's much more expensive than seeds. If money isn't an issue, turf may be the winning option for the reasons you'll see below. Turf is a thick layer of grass that grows on a 1- to 2-inch thick layer of soil that has been cut from the ground.
Lawn can guarantee a lush lawn, but if some pieces die, you'll need to reorder the lawn and install it again. Another benefit of turf is that it is usually locally sourced, which not only helps support local lawn farmers, but also prevents transplant shock and other problems that can occur from plants not acclimated to their specific climate. There is a significant increase in price when you choose to place grass instead of planting because someone else has already taken the time to grow the lawn for you. Turf does not have an extended lifespan and there are several steps you need to take before your lawn is ready for lawn installation.
It may take all season or even several seasons to get a thick, lush lawn from grass seed, but the lawn takes root in just a couple of weeks. Shelley's point of view
) While I'm not opposed to putting grass per se, I think it's more worthwhile to sow seeds when laying new grass. One of the main reasons turf is better than grass seed is because it provides us with instant turf and instant gratification. When buying grass from a supplier, remember to ask how many square feet of grass come with your pallets.
Unroll the first roll of grass along this line and smooth as you go hitting the grass so there are no air pockets left. Installing grass is also something like putting together a puzzle: you'll position and trim the lawn as you go, making sure the pieces fit well and align with the edges and contours of your yard.
