If a vibrant green lawn is something you feel your garden is lacking, why not start the year with a bang and place your order of fresh turf as soon as possible? You can then begin to focus on your many other New Year’s resolutions and finally make the most of your home, inside and out.
Contrary to popular belief, it can actually be very beneficial to invest in a new lawn during cold months like January and February. Firstly, it means a huge reduction in maintenance. For example, there is no need to water the lawn as the British weather will take care of this for you, whilst you can also avoid mowing the lawn during this time too, especially when it has rained heavily. It’s often a case of letting nature “run its course”. So if you lay your new lawn in January, it’s completely hassle-free and means you can enjoy the lawn when you spend more time outdoors, such as May, June, July and August.
There are just a few considerations to keep in mind if you do decide to opt for a new lawn early next year, such as:
