Aspects to consider when choosing one of our roll-on lawn types

What to consider when looking at different turf/grass types
- Position: Will your lawn be shaded or receive direct sunlight? Consider the sun positioning in both the summer and winter months.
- Purpose: Lawns can be decorative, or be a cooling space for the kids to play. Think about whether your grass will receive high foot traffic.
- Maintenance: How much time can you dedicate to watering and mowing? Even low-maintenance lawns require some care to keep them looking their best.
- Water: With Perth water restrictions, you may want to choose a more water-wise lawn if you are covering large areas.
