Selecting the best turf for your location

Selecting The Right Turf For You

From shade tolerant to wear tolerant and low maintenance, there is no turf that is best for all situations, but Glenview Turf are here to help you choose the right turf.

Choosing Turf

Determining these factors will make the difference between having a successful lawn that you can be proud of, or just a grassed area that you have to mow:

  • Soil type and consistency — If the soil is poor and compacted, no turf will thrive. Do you have adequate soil and are all drainage problems, if any, rectified?
  • Climate — certain grasses can lose their colour in the winter months if exposed to extreme cold temperatures. If appearance is important, choose a hardier turf.
  • Wear and tear — what type and amount of traffic will your lawn see?
  • The amount of sun that your lawn will receive — how much sunlight is available where you wish to lay the turf? This will have a huge bearing on your choice, as some turf varieties need more sunlight than others.

Personal Consultation

For these as well as many other reasons, it is always our first suggestion that we provide obligation free assistance in this process by having one of our Glenview Turf project consultants, with many years of experience in the field, come and visit your property. This will allow you to walk them through what you have in mind for your lawn, so they can provide you with the solution that considers the many variables specific to your location.
