Coastal defences  Like many Australians, you might live on the coastal fringes and thus be in the path of salt spray. Not all grass varieties cope well with this and you’ll need to ensure that you use something like a soft leaf buffalo, such as Sir Walter, if you don’t want to end up with dunes where you once had a lawn.

Water water  For some regions we live in an era of water restrictions and it’s important to understand the effects of those restrictions on any lawn before it’s installed. In terms of water use, couches, most soft leaf buffalos and zoysias are all pretty similiar. Kikuyu requires a bit more water though or it’ll start to turn brown. Obviously your garden soil’s ability to retain water has a bearing on usage too, with coastal sandy areas suffering the most from fast drainage of water.

Where do you live?  The kind of lawn you end up purchasing should be highly dependent on a number of factors. These considerations include, your general geographic location, the aspect of your lawn (is it in shade or sun), your budget, your soil type, the look you’re after and, of course, the uses that your lawn will be put to. If you ignore any of these factors then you could end up with an expensive weed patch instead of a vibrant backlawn.

Everybody uses their back lawn differently. You might enjoy playing backyard cricket with the kids, or have a dog; you might be a garden or lawn enthusiast who enjoys maintaining a perfectly ordered space to compliment the flowers and shrubs. You must plan ahead thought & choose a variety that’s robust enough to cope with an evolving lifestyle. Sure, you might want a fine leaf showcase lawn variety now, but if you have kids later on, the last thing you’ll want to be doing is re turf!

Good foundations  It’s always worth knowing what condition your soil is in before you install a new lawn or replace an existing one. While some grass varieties only thrive in certain types of soil, pre-emptive action to improve your soil will enable you to lay most types of grass without issue.
