Planning a Garden with Turf

Gardening can be very relaxing and is a popular hobby. It’s also an expensive hobby, as some homeowners spend a small fortune each spring buying and planting flowers, herbs, veggies and more. Some people find gardening can be overwhelming because of all of the tending a garden requires. The benefit of having an artificial yard is that there is no time to be spent cutting the grass or weeding, which leaves plenty of time to spend in the garden. With artificial turf you don’t have to give up gardening as a hobby, it simply allows you more time to focus on the needs of your garden.

Kinds of turf

There are many different kinds of turf, and some are better suited for gardening areas. If you plan to use turf in your garden as well. Choose a different style or texture of your fake grass, one that will blend in better with your garden.

Space

When planting a garden there are a couple of things you need to consider. Be sure to pick a spot that’s appropriate for growing flowers, remember they need sunlight and access to water. If you do have an irrigation system, it’s best to put your garden near a line so that it can get ample water. Or you can commit to watering your flowers daily with a hose.

You’ll need to find a sunny spot. Your artificial lawn won’t need sunlight, but your flowers do. Try to find them a place that gets sun, but doesn’t roast. A little afternoon shade is best.

A great way to use artificial lawn in your garden is to use it as walkways or paths through your garden.

Chemical-Free Turf

Finding turf that’s eco-friendly and chemical free is key. You want your turf in your garden to be made with non-toxic materials, as the chemicals can leach into the soil and harm the growing flowers. This is especially important if you’re growing a vegetable garden, and you plan to eat what you grow.

Gardening

Installing turf is a great way to enhance the look of your garden, all while keeping it easy to maintain. With turf you won’t have to focus on taking care of it, so you can spend more time planning a garden and taking care of it.
