How to determine the right lawn for your garden

Spring is here, meaning now is one of the best times to get your new lawn. But wait, have you found the right variety for your new lawn?

With plenty of varieties on offer, choosing the right turf for your property might seem confusing. But don’t worry! Our team at Sydney Lawn and Turf can make selecting the ultimate turf more straightforward. To see how you can determine the right turf for you, keep reading below.

First set a budget for the overall price of your new lawn

The first thing you need to do when determining the right lawn for your garden is to set a budget. How much are you able to spend on your new lawn? Our goal is to provide our customers with the best turf prices possible. Genuinely affordable grass makes finding the right variety within your budget easy.

In doing this, you should consider how much land you are covering when setting a budget. If you have a large block of land, you might want to go for one of our lower-cost varieties.

Do you have a smaller backyard? Covering smaller areas is an excellent opportunity to splurge on more expensive grass such as Sir Grange turf.

Setting the overall budget and knowing how many turf rolls you need can have a heavy impact on the variety you choose in the end.

Consider what you want from your future grass

The great thing about grass is that not all turf varieties are the same. With differing qualities and features, each turf can perform and look different.

What is most important to you? Do you want a gorgeous colour, or would you prefer durable qualities? Is this grass more for show or will it need to go up against heavy foot traffic from your family and pets?

Whatever you need your grass to do, you must note down what you want out of it.

Other factors you should consider includes:

  • What grass texture do you prefer? Thin or wide blade?
  • Does it need to survive frost or snow?
  • How much shade will the variety get?
  • The level of sun exposure it will need to withstand.
  • If the grass needs to be low allergenic.
  • How much maintenance can you provide?

In Australia, we are fortunate to have many options in the turf industry. And for a turf variety that reacts well to the unpredictable weather, we recommend Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo grass. This good-looking grass is incredibly tough and has other great characteristics, making it an excellent candidate for turf varieties with a reasonable price.
