Prepare your garden for the summer: natural or artificial lawn?

Do you want to have a garden ready for summer? The lawn is probably the key. However, the choice between natural or artificial turf can be complicated. Here are some ideas and information to help you see more clearly and find out what kind of lawn to install.

 

The traditional beauty of natural grass
Certainly the most traditional choice. However, it is also the most expensive because this type of turf requires a lot of maintenance. You can request a quote from a landscape architect, which will save you time and some headaches! Keep a number of things in mind when maintaining natural lawns, such as: fertilizing the soil, killing weeds, removing pests, setting automatic watering, or doing so frequently. Anyway, the beauty of the natural lawn is indisputable.

Natural Lawn

 Natural grass is really interesting to combine with other materials such as stones. You can, for example, create paths in your garden, in which the stone is the protagonist and where the turf is naturally placed between its assemblies. In this case, the best option is the natural lawn, since we must not forget that the artificial is sold by rolls, which will be more difficult to adapt to small or even tiny spaces.

Aesthetics can also be a problem to consider when choosing an artificial turf.
