Reducing erosion with lawn grass

23 Dec is last orders to get grass at your place in 2014!

Grass reduces soil erosion caused by water and wind.

Grass develops a thick root and shoot system forming a wall that prevents soil erosion. For example with new home construction, sod is laid next to the curb to prevent soil erosion and act as a buffer strip. The strip filters runoff water before it enters the street and storm water drains, which lead to nearby streams and surface waters.

Regular mowing increases shoot density and root mass, improves soil stability, and prevents
water and wind erosion by holding water in place and slowing down the flow. Research
shows that sediment loss from grass is negligible under normal rainfall conditions.

Knowing that established lawns can increase a home’s value by as much as 15 per cent, do you need to get good grass into your garden before the year is out?

Make the most of Spring to establish your new lawn

Did you know that an average-sized block with town water can still install turf lawn when the weather is dry?

How so?

They key is to staging your new lawn’s installation, one area or segment at a time, to give it the best chance of flourishing.

Once a new lawn has been laid, it typically takes a month of watering morning and afternoon to establish properly.

Spring is the perfect time of year to do that before our gardens are subjected to the full summer weather of January and December.

And, if you lay your lawn now, you still have a month to get it established before the Christmas school holidays.

Adding value to your build or landscaping project

As a builder or landscaper, each project you undertake creates value for your client, would you agree?

And creating a thing of value, it should present in the best possible condition.

Imagine handing over your completed project that not only reflects your talent and expertise, but is a pleasure to look at. The easiest way to give any build the x-factor is to include a quality finish that creates a great first impression.

Laying down a beautiful lawn can provide that final touch.
