They say the grass is always greener on the other side and in some cases this may be true as there are many different types of tur quality you can choose from as well as the soil quality under the turn itself and the quality of workmanship in the installation.
Timing is also an important consideration. You don’t want to be surfing on hot sunny days if you can avoid it. The hotter the weather the more watering and care you will have to take for at least 2 weeks after installation to prevent cracks and the soil drying out between joins.

The four most popular grasses in the UK
Ryegrass is the most common cheapest grass in the UK. It’s fast-growing, highly resistant and recovers well.
It will require lots of fertilising year round and up-to two cuts per week during peak periods.
Considered a hybrid weed grass with an ability to grow anywhere with shallow dense roots. It is high maintenance and very weak in winter and can die completely. It’s preferred in golf courses and bowling greens.
Slender Creeping Red Fescue
This is another favoured choice amongst groundskeepers of the bowling green/golf course. It’s very durable grass that takes hold quickly and looks great. It’s one of the best grasses for shady areas and requires less maintenance than other grasses.
Common Brown-Top Bent
This is another common choice for groundskeepers that does best on soils with poor acidity, requiring relatively low-maintenance. It does well being close mowing.
