Fresh, real grass makes for a superb place for kids and adults to play, run, and roam free. Plus, real turf is a top choice as a surface for cricket, Australian Rules Football, rugby and soccer therefore you want a breed of grass that is hardy and can withstand a lot of wear and tear when it comes to a lot of pedestrian use.
So, what type of turf should be top of your list? Let’s take a look!
Factors to consider when investing in oval turf
You want a turf for schools and ovals that can function well in all kinds of weather, look great, and last a long time. When selecting a turf you also want to consider:
- How much shade the area gets
- The local climate
- The water supply
- Your budget
- The amount of traffic
Most ovals will be getting a lot of sun as they provide a wide open field of play, but if yours gets considerable shade, this is something to think about when it comes to choosing your turf. Do you get rain all year long or are you in an arid region? Is it easy or difficult to water the oval? Finally, how much money is in your budget and how much traffic do you expect the area to experience?
These factors should all be at the forefront of your decision-making process. Since most ovals will get a lot of sun and wear and tear, having a hearty grass is important. And so is their watering requirements.
