Best Turf to lay beside your pool

As the warmer weather approaches, many of us are thinking about how to make the most of our outdoor spaces. If you have a pool, you may be wondering what kind of turf to lay beside it. Natural turf is a popular choice for poolside areas. It’s important to choose a variety that is resistant to drought and heat, as well as being able to tolerate a lot of foot traffic.

Poolside turf types

There are many turf types that are salt tolerant, but two of the most common are Tiftuf and Platinum Zoysia. Tiftuf is a common choice for golf courses and other areas that are regularly exposed to salt, as it is highly resistant to salt damage. Platinum Zoysia is another popular salt-tolerant turf, and is often used in coastal areas. Both Tiftuf and Platinum Zoysia are able to withstand high levels of salt without experiencing any damage, making them ideal choices for areas that are exposed to salt water or salt spray.

Platinum Zoysia Turf

Platinum Zoysia is the best lawn for around your pool because it is durable, low-maintenance, and has a beautiful, lush appearance. Platinum Zoysia grass is also tolerant to salt and chlorine, making it the perfect choice for poolside areas.

Tiftuf Turf

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance lawn that can withstand heavy foot traffic and looks great around your pool, Tiftuf is a perfect choice. This tough grass is resistant to heat, drought, and salt, so it will stay green and healthy even in the most challenging conditions. Tiftuf also has a beautiful, fine-textured look that will instantly elevate the aesthetic of your outdoor space.

General Lawn Care Tips Around Pools

The area around your pool is a high-traffic area and the lawn is subject to a lot of wear and tear. Here are some tips on how to take care of the lawn around your pool:

  • Rake up leaves and debris regularly to prevent the lawn from becoming smothered.
  • Mow the lawn regularly to keep the grass short and prevent it from getting too long and tangled.
  • Water the lawn deeply and evenly to keep the grass healthy and prevent it from drying out and dying.
  • Apply a fertilizer specifically designed for pool areas to keep the grass green and healthy.

By following these simple tips, you can keep the lawn around your pool looking great all season long!
