Many of us dream of having a home with a garden that has lush green lawns and border hedge plants with beautiful foliage and flowers. Imagine matching blue and white hydrangeas and David Austen climbing roses with rolling fields – it would be a picturesque moment. Spending an evening with our dog and grandchildren in these spaces is what perfect retirements are made of. However, the reality is far from this beautiful and light mood. As per the adage – “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”. But it need not be if you follow Jebsen & Jessen Technology – Turf & Irrigation for the right advice on maintaining the perfect and well-manicured lawns that complement your home and office gardens.

Even-looking grass, like any other plant, needs the right substrate to grow well. It cannot grow properly in clay soils with pH levels that don’t suit plant conditions. The right substrate is a mixture of garden soil, peat moss, and sand that has to be spread across the bed, ideally two inches above the ground for best results. However, let’s face it: not everyone has the time to manage the turf, especially in the initial days when the seeds are yet to sprout and increase their root growth. This is where hiring the experts in turf grass management comes in handy, and it’s far less expensive than buying a dozen pieces of equipment that will go into your garage after the upstart enthusiasm to grow your turf fizzles out.Image1

If you are looking to change the landscape and make your garden an attractive spot in the neighborhood, then check out these new trends that are setting their ground in the turf space:

1. Turf to Conserve Water

It is possible to conserve rainwater through harvesting methods, and grasses play a pivotal role in this process. Grass contributes to transpiration phenomena that help maintain the moisture levels of the atmosphere. As water is precious, turf managers are looking at optimal utilization of precious resources through alternative methods that need less water and using drips and sprinklers. Native grasses require far less water than other variants.

2. Eco-Friendly Practices

Grasses are stressed with recurrent diseases. Integrated pest management solutions with bio-pest solutions, such as good crawlies like ladybugs, help in preventing aphids and spider mites. Mycorrhiza utilization during seedling stages helps grasses absorb more nutrients from the soil substrate.

The grass grown through sustainable practices tends to be healthier, and the atmosphere around is free from overuse of hazardous pesticides.

3. Soil Management

Understanding and respecting the soil requirements of different plants is helping growers handle the most delicate plants and help raise them in controlled conditions, far from their native habitats like rainforests and grasslands spread across the planet. Composting our kitchen waste results in large tracts of soilless medium that are nutrient-dense and a great substitute as a growing substrate.

Conclusion:

A small office with a patch of front yard with lush green grass hedged with border plants in vibrant colors is the perfect pitch to impress your clients. They will be impressed with the lengths that you can go to take care of the workplace where your team toils for most of the day. So next time you want to turf, look up for a service provider who will understand your vision.
