    I would go to garden centre and see it first, you dont know what weeds may be in jt.

    Be careful when buying online. You could be buying weed ridden rubbish which you will never kill off no matter what treatment you try. Bad grasses can be Annual Meadow Grass which seeds thick bladed grasses all year round (hence the name), Crouch Grass (weed grass).

    Look for Bent Grass and Fescue Grass with a mixture of other grasses for a quality turf but this is a bit more expensive than the other types. It depends on what quality of lawn you want. Modern Rygrass can also be attractive and hard wearing.

    Look up in your yellow pages for lawn turf growers, go to their nursery and look for whatever quality you want and then buy.
