Instant Lawn

Revitalise Your Garden With Instant Lawn

As summer approaches many home owners are looking forward to that first day of bright sunshine at the pool and the company of friends and family. In order to enjoy that day it’s essential that the garden look its best. Unfortunately the long winter may have damaged the lawn, leading to unsightly brown patches and even areas that are completely missing grass cover. The solution is instant lawn.

Instant lawn is a cost-effective and quick solution to unsightly lawn areas. It can be laid in only a matter of hours and a wide variety of different types of lawn can be purchased, each with unique characteristics that will ensure that a lawn solution is available for use in all areas of the garden.

Although instant lawn is available from many garden shops and centres or even on the side of many roads in South Africa it is recommended that those wishing to ensure an even, high quality lawn covering consult with experts in the field (excuse the pun). Purchasing lawn from the roadside is more dangerous than it sounds. The lawns being sold in this unregulated manner often contain parasites, diseases and insects that can damage not only the lawn purchased, but also other plants in the garden. Often these lawns are seeded from varieties that are not suitable for use in South African climates. Bu consulting experts in the field of lawn maintenance and care the home owner will ensure that the lawn that they purchase is suited to the soil type and unique conditions found in their area of South Africa.

When laying instant lawn the homeowner is required to exercise care that the lawn will flourish. This involves the use of the correct fertilisers and ensuring that the lawn is adequately watered during the bedding down process. Experts will often advise home owners that the installation of an irrigation system is the best way to ensure ongoing lawn health. Most gardeners realise that the garden is an intricate ecosystem that demands balance in order to appear healthy. The same applies to lawns. Instant lawn also requires specialised chemicals and fertilisers to ensure good health.

The fertilisers and other chemicals required for a healthy lawn can be purchased from your local garden store and nursery; some of the larger supermarkets also have extensive inventories of various lawn treatments to help a homeowner get the best out of their lawns.

For the best advice on how to ensure that instant lawn remains an attractive permanent feature of your garden consult with experts who will be bale to supply you with the correct information that you will require to treat the lawn irrespective of its type, the soil conditions or the time of year. Professionals at organisations like LawnSafe have many years of experience when it comes to the unique challenges posed by both gardening and lawn maintenance in south Africa and they can offer you valuable tips and hints to help you prepare for the summer outdoor season.
