best garden turf

With so many different types of turf available to buy online, it can be hard to find the best garden turf to buy. In this article, we’re looking at what makes the best turf.

The best turf is hardwearing enough to withstand the rigours of family life and yet healthy, beautiful and easy to care for. When you are researching garden turf, look out for the following features that will set it aside from bowling green turf, stadium turf and other turf for specialist applications.

Tips for finding the best garden turf

Look for purpose-grown cultivated turf and try to find out what grass species are in the seed mix. Ideally, the best garden turf will be a blend of ryegrass, smooth stalked meadow grass and fescue grasses.

“Fine turf” with no ryegrass can be high maintenance. So, unless you are an enthusiastic lawn lover, fine turf is not the best garden turf.

Then, check reviews. How have other people got on with a particular product or supplier? …….And do try to buy direct from the grower – your turf will be fresher.

If you are buying from a retailer – be sure that your turf has been delivered that day. Old turf never makes good garden turf.

Buying the best turf online

So, buying your garden turf online for delivery to your door is hassle-free and simple – provided you order from the right company! Always read the reviews and take a good look around their website. Is there plenty of information about measuring your garden, preparing the soil, laying turf and caring for your new lawn? It’s always good to have a point of reference – especially if you’ve not laid turf before.

Which is the best – choosing the best garden turf

The best one is one that suits your budget, your lawncare skills, the look and feel of your garden AND your lifestyle.

If you are unable to mow twice a week in spring and summer, choose a turf that will be happy with a more casual care regime. But, be aware that lawn care really does have a long-term effect on your lawn’s appearance. If the grass is stressed and loses condition it may take several weeks for it to return to its former glory.

There are three grades of garden turf currently available to order online from Turfonline.

Jubilee Turf

Our most popular garden turf comes highly recommended by garden designers, professional landscapers, and home gardeners.

So, it’s particularly good looking and it’s hardwearing enough to cope with normal everyday use. Its perfect for manicured gardens where the lawn sets off the aesthetic of the whole property.With a sensible lawn care regime, your established Jubilee Turf will look fantastic for many years to come.

Choose Jubilee Turf if you are proud of your garden and want it to look as good as possible, as quickly as possible.

Garden Lawn Turf

Garden Lawn Turf will make a strong, healthy, hardwearing lawn. Once established it’s very easy to look after and will tolerate a fairly relaxed lawn care regime. So, just remember to feed it regularly and never remove more than 1/3 of its length in any one cut. Moreover, the better you are at lawn care, the better this turf will look over time.

This is our lowest price turf but in this case, low price certainly doesn’t mean poor quality.

Garden Lawn turf – uses.

Perfect for tough gardens where having fun is more important than looking immaculate. If you have energetic dogs, sporty kids or just love partying in the garden, Garden Lawn Turf is such good value for money that any signs of wear and tear just won’t matter.

Choose garden lawn turf if you want instant groundcover AND superb value for money.

Species Rich Turf

Species-rich turf is a blend of several low-growing plant species designed for low maintenance and pollinator-friendly gardens. It’s durable enough for kids play and as pretty as a picture.

So, choose species-rich turf if you only want to mow your lawn a couple of times a month and/or you want to do your bit to boost biodiversity.
