Sowing a new lawn and growing it from scratch can sometimes be the best option for a bigger garden. However achieving the perfect lawn can take some time, so we've created some simple steps that'll help you choose the right grass seed, prepare the ground and show you how to sow and care for your lawn.
If you fancy a new lawn without wanting to wait for one to grow, a new turf lawn is the easiest answer. It might take a little effort to prepare the ground and remove the turf, but once the new turf is in you only have to water it. Just follow our guide to learn how to lay new lawn turf and you could be sitting outdoors, enjoying your garden, even sooner than you think.
For those who want a beautiful garden without the maintenance that comes with it, artificial grass is the perfect option. With a real-grass look but with greater wear and weather resistance, it's an excellent grass alternative for a low maintenance gardener. There's no need to water it in dry weather and the grass is porous so won't have puddles in the rain: it's ideal for urban and small gardens.
