Both household gardens and businesses requiring lawns can select from a huge range of lawn seed developed by the those that supply it. Growing a lawn from lawn seed can hold several advantages instead of using turf and will be part of any choice made.
Lawn seed is less expensive than turf and this is an important fact to remember when growing a lawn over a large area.
Depending on what the requirements are for the lawn, the lawn seed chosen will need to be up to the job. Lawns are used for many reasons, including a wide range of ‘grass sports’ such as tennis and cricket. Whilst it’s unlikely that in a domestic situation someone is going to want a full-size lawn tennis court in their back garden, it does help to consider if the lawn seed will be used heavily.
There are essentially two broad types of lawn seed. Changes in weather and roughly treated grass is coped with adequately by one group of lawn seed which is a hardy and tough kind. The second group of lawn seed is not so hardy, but will deliver a beautiful grass designed for show gardens and people wanting to overlook a sea of green. Without doubt, the most common sort of lawn seed chosen by families will be a variety from the first group.
Professional gardeners may want to create a stunning lawn that companies can use to encourage more customers, so they would choose from the ornamental types of lawn seed.
It’s also realistic to come across lawn seed that can be used for more shady or wetter conditions than the normal.
It is obvious then that lawn seed provides an excellent level of variety and choice as well as being cheaper than turf. The next thing to do once the relevant lawn seed has been purchased is to prepare the ground, make sure the topsoil is in good condition and then sow.
Before the lawn grows, a small amount of patience is required before it can be fully enjoyed.
