A century ago, creating a lawn in the gardens belonged only to a certain group, but today it has become an indispensable part of our gardens. At the beginning of the 1800s, the lawns that adorned only the gardens of the magnificent castles of the English nobility, nobles and bourgeoisie became indispensable for our gardens with the economic rise of the middle class after the 1st and 2nd World Wars following the industrial revolution. Today, having a lawn has become a necessity rather than an indicator of social status. While this has negative aspects for our environment and economy, properly formed grass areas provide a tremendous aesthetic appearance.

I would like to complete this article in three or four parts. In this way, we will have a deep knowledge of the lawn areas, from the maintenance of the lawn to the creation of the lawn area. After a general historical introduction, let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of lawns.

The advantages of creating a grass area;

  1. Definitely grass areas give an aesthetic green texture to the areas where they are applied. There is no alternative to creating this aesthetic green texture with any other material.

  2. Compared to other vegetative cover materials, they are areas that can be stepped on grass areas. This is one of the unique features of lawns. In fact, grass areas are tied to the soil more tightly as they are stepped on, and they take root again in the parts of the broken grass tissues in contact with the soil, with the event we call tillering.

Disadvantages of creating a grass field;

  1. Grass areas are living areas with regular irrigation and their water demands are high. Although it varies according to the climatic characteristics of the region where it is applied, 8-10 liters of water per square meter is needed daily. For example, if you have a garden with 2000 square meters of grass, the daily water requirement of this garden is 2000x10 20,000 liters (ie 20 tons of water).

  2. Grass areas are expensive areas to maintain. The establishment of grass fields is not only possible by planting the seed and fertilizing it. Lawn areas should have an automatic irrigation system. This seriously increases the cost of the lawn area.

  3. Lawn areas are areas that require regular maintenance. Grass areas need to be mowed at regular intervals. Fertilizing in winter is also good. It is also necessary to fight weeds manually or with drugs. It can be seen that grass areas are vegetation that requires constant care.
