If you are one of the lucky ones in Queensland, you’ll have a pool on your property to ensure you can cool off during those hot summer months.
And, it is becoming more and more common for turf lovers to install grass closer and closer to the edge of their pool – but will the pool water kill your lawn? We answer this question, and a few more, below!
There are two big reasons (and many smaller ones) to have turf laid near your pool:
In most situations, pool water will not kill your turf, no matter what turf variety you have in your yard. Wet feet and the odd splash should not cause many hassles to your grass, as the levels of chlorine and pool chemicals should never be in high enough concentrations that they burn or cause pH problems for your lawn.
Additionally, turf is really good at figuring out the nutrients it needs and avoiding the ones that it doesn’t require. In saying this, don’t go and pour a huge amount of pool water onto your grass, as it certainly won’t like that!
Tip: Make sure you are cleaning your pool and testing your pool water on a regular basis to ensure it is within the optimal range.
With these simple things in mind, there really isn’t too much else to worry about, your pool and grass can exist side by side and you can enjoy the benefits!
