When it comes to the outside of your home I would recommend that you put up a lawn rather than cement or tile the place. Whilst it does require care and maintenance but the having a natural environment around your home is good for you and your family.
When it comes to planting your own lawn you probably know that there are different kinds of lawn and the one that you choose is determined by a number of things. You need to look at the type of soil that you intend to plant your lawn in, the climatic conditions of where you are staying and of course your own personal preference or taste. The thing is that different kinds of lawn will respond differently to the different environments.
Some lawns are suitable for growing where there is plenty of sun and light; whilst you will have one requires relatively large amounts of shade. If you want to spend little effort in the care and grooming of your lawn then you better choose the one that grows best in the climate that you are staying in. You should be able to regulate the amount of water and sun that the lawn is exposed to.
The sun should be enough for it to grow and be kept warm and the shade should be enough to keep it from drying. Before planting your lawn you need to make sure the ground is cleared of weeds and thick bladed grass and any other thing that might be growing on it. Try and make sure everything is removed right up to the root. Leaving bits of root in the ground will result in whatever it is you left growing and giving you problems in looking after your lawn.
You should be able to get the right grass seeds at a suitable nursery or general dealer within your area. Once the grass has fully developed it’s just a matter of putting the lawn mower to it after that, nothing strenuous.
