Does your lawn receive enough sun and shade throughout the day? Is the soil of your landscape filled with nutrients? There are some grasses that discourage away weeds and pests but may need plenty of sunshine! Though the benefits are visible, the money might also be a little off-putting. Are you going to spend a lot of money on your lawn for quality results? You may want to analyse what you will prefer.

For some gardeners, it can be a little hard to mow in certain areas. This is where groundcovers which don’t require any mowing and trimming could help you out with less maintenance. Groundcovers such as English Ivy and Liriope can make a good landscape for hard mowing areas.
Sunshine or shade
Most grasses tend to grow much better in areas that receive more than six hours a day of sunshine. You need to explore the different grasses so you know what will work for your lawn. If however, your lawn receives less than six hours a day of sunshine, any grasses you choose which need that important sunshine will do very poor. So you should try the variety of grasses that can tolerate sufficient hours of shade.
This factor goes to the purpose of your lawn. If it is to be used as a play area, then you need to select a variety that has a good wearing tolerance or else your lawn is going to wear away quite quickly.
Some grasses can tolerate very dry conditions with very little water. Most grasses need at least 2cm of water each week. If your location is of a very hot climate with little rain, your choice should be one of these varieties.
What type of grass can I choose?
Sowing your lawn with seeds is an option you could take if you want to save money. On the other hand, Turf is another good option but is not widely available for a gardener. If you want something less cheap than Turf, you can try Runners which results in a faster lawn than seeds. The only downturn for this is that they are not always available.
