Turfing & Lawn Services In Essex

Turfing and lawns are an important aspect of British culture, with many people preferring to buy or rent their own homes in the countryside. Lawn care is a big job for anyone who has one, but fortunately, there are some ways that you can cut down on your workload without sacrificing quality. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing: what turf is, how to lay turf, tips for choosing appropriate lawn equipment, which types of turfing exist, and when they’re used at home.

Turf layers Essex

Turf layers are the roots of grass that have been grown and harvested to be used for sporting surfaces, such as golf courses. They can also be laid on top of clay or concrete foundations to maintain a natural look without worrying about mowing it all year round. Whilst these types of turfs might not seem like an option if you don’t own your own home with enough space, some people rent out houses where they know there is lawn, so this would make them perfect tenants.

This type of turf installation will require at least two days worth of work from yourself and friends who already have experience laying turf because it’s pretty complicated due to its weight. Especially when compared against other artificial materials such as rubber which has a much lower weight. Obtaining help from professionals might make the load far easier in just about every aspect.

Artificial grass Essex

Artificial grass is a relatively new material specially designed to imitate the natural look of real grass. It can be used both inside and outside, even in areas where it would usually be impossible for lawns to grow because they’re too shady or there are no nearby sources of water available (which means you’ll need your sprinkler system).

Many gardeners will agree the convenience of artificial grass is that this type of lawn needs very little upkeep and doesn’t require any mowing whatsoever. This does free up some time but makes sure that you have enough money set aside to stay looking as good as possible without expensive repairs being required on an annual basis. Whilst these types of turfs might not.

Types of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass can be classified in two ways: either as a short pile or a long pile. Short-pile is the more popular choice because it’s cheaper and easier to maintain, which means your gardening budget won’t have to stretch quite so far. Long-pile artificial grasses are less common, but they’re preferred by those with a high maintenance lifestyle – those who like their lawns looking immaculate for months on end without any wear and tear whatsoever.

Neither of these types would require you to mow them at all, and both could be installed within just one day if there’s enough help available from friends or professionals. Sometimes, homeowners might need an extra hand when handling such heavy items (after all, some pieces of turf can weigh up to 70kg).

The Hidden Benefits of Artificial Grass

We can now begin to appreciate why the popularity of artificial grass has increased in recent times. However, it is just as important to mention a handful of lesser-known benefits to taking into account. Here are some additional features:

  • Thanks to modern technology, the colours of your artificial turf will not fade or become discoloured.
  • This type of material is highly resistant to UV rays.
  • Artificial grass is perfectly suited for areas associated with poor drainage, as it will help to eliminate pooling water during heavy rains.
  • Artificial turf is sometimes preferred by homeowners who have allergies due to its sterile nature.
  • Unlike natural materials, no pesticides or herbicides will need to be applied to artificial grass (an important concern if you happen to have children or pets).
