If you are seeking a company to perform turf installation for you, do shop around to get the very best of landscaping companies. Installing turf is not just a matter of throwing it onto the ground, it is actually an art.
It is an art because your desire for turf is guided by your desire for a particular color of green, a turf that is soft to the touch, has a proven track record, and of course it must be disease resistant with a modicum of maintenance as well as being drought resistant in these days of water conservation.
Their landscape artists… err …that is landscape designers, know all about turf that is rated highly to perform in your weather zone, as well as turf that will actually thrive in the variable soil available in Vermont and the changing climatic conditions that we experience. This is where art comes into being a requisite. Turf installation means that you will be spared the terrible hassles of seeding, waiting for the turf to grow, reseeding areas where it did not grow, and by the time you have good looking turf, it’s fall and the turf will die soon due to inclement cold weather. Turf installation utilizes turf grass sod, thus you will have “instant” cultivated turf without having to patiently await maturity.
Those workers who install turf for Open Earth Landscaping have been specifically trained to do it right the first time. This is an important part of Open Earth Landscaping’s effort to remain on the forefront of all landscaping practices that are completely and fully environmentally friendly.
Part of their training involves knowing what is needed for optimum growth of grass in Vermont. They are taught that grass needs nutrients, water, air and of course sunlight, however they also understand that if one were to reduce one of these needs, or even make available too much of any one of them, then turf will lose its inherent beauty and perhaps may even die. Thus they fully understand that each must be supplied in the correct proportions so that your turf will flourish and provide you with landscaping beauty a well as giving children a completely safe place for their play. In addition, they know that good turf is a fantastic benefit for our environment.
With dedication, they consider the above training, and thus know that turf obtains those factors of nutrients, water and air from the soil and thus prior to installation they will of course test your soil. In Vermont, at times there may be too much clay in the soil, or it is tremendously compacted. Those who install roads love this fact, but turf abhors it since water and air cannot reach its roots to enable it to grow properly.
This may help you understand the supreme importance of proper site preparation, as well as any soil improvement that may be undertaken. This is what enables turf roots to penetrate evenly as well as deeply. Now you understand why turf installation is an art, so do contact the artists at Open Earth Landscaping to beautify your canvas!
