The enveloping charm
of natural grass


In Mallorca, where the sun and Mediterranean climate bathe our landscapes, natural grass becomes an oasis of greenery that brings life and joy to any corner. At Alcolea Gardens, we specialize in enhancing the beauty of these spaces with our expert services in natural grass planting and maintenance.

Characterized by its intense green color and soft texture, natural grass is not only visually appealing but also has significant environmental benefits. It acts as a natural thermal insulator, keeping cool during the warm summer months, and contributes to the regulation of the surrounding temperature. Additionally, natural grass absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, thus improving the air quality we breathe.

Regarding soil health, the root structure of natural grass promotes water and nutrient retention, helping to prevent erosion and improving soil quality. In turn, well-maintained grass can host a variety of small insects and other organisms, contributing to the biodiversity of the ecosystem.

Furthermore, natural grass offers a functional and comfortable space for outdoor recreational and sports activities. There is nothing quite like the feeling of walking barefoot on well-cared-for natural grass, an experience that invites relaxation and enjoyment of nature.

For all these reasons, natural grass stands as an unparalleled choice for those who wish to enjoy a green, vibrant, and ecologically beneficial garden. Whether you are considering planting grass from scratch or sowing grass in an existing garden, our team of experts is ready to assist you in transforming your outdoor space into a green and natural haven.

Our natural grass planting and maintenance services in Mallorca

Natural Grass Planting and Seeding Services

Planting and seeding natural grass are two of the most sought-after services in our company. We specialize in understanding and applying the specific requirements of each type of grass and the climate and soil conditions of Mallorca. Whether you desire low-maintenance grass or one that is highly resistant to foot traffic, we have the perfect solution for you.

The process of planting natural grass begins with site preparation, which involves removing weeds and leveling the soil. We then proceed to seed the grass, ensuring that the seeds are evenly distributed. After seeding, we provide careful monitoring and an appropriate irrigation program to ensure the healthy growth of your grass.

The best time to plant or seed natural grass depends on several factors, such as the type of grass being planted and the local climate conditions. However, generally, spring and fall are the optimal seasons for grass seeding due to milder temperatures and regular rainfall. In Mallorca, where the climate is generally mild, we can plant grass throughout much of the year. It is always advisable to seek the advice of experienced professionals like Alcolea Gardens to determine the best time to plant your grass.

At Alcolea Gardens, we meticulously prepare the soil to ensure optimal grass growth. The process begins by removing any debris from the area and then leveling and smoothing the ground. Next, we improve the soil quality by adding amendments if necessary, such as compost or sand, to enhance soil structure and drainage. Finally, we sow the grass seeds evenly and at the correct depth to ensure successful germination.

Natural Grass Sod Installation Services

Our natural grass sod installation service offers a quick and efficient solution for those who desire a green lawn in no time.

Sod is pre-grown rolls of natural grass that are directly placed onto the prepared ground, providing an almost instantly mature and healthy lawn.

We offer different types of high-quality sod, each carefully selected to ensure its durability and adaptability to the climate and soil of Mallorca. Additionally, our experts handle the installation, ensuring that each sod is correctly and efficiently laid down.

Sod rolls, also known as turf rolls, are pre-grown natural grass delivered in rolls or sheets, ready to be installed in your garden. They offer several advantages over seeding grass from scratch. Sod provides instant, dense, and healthy grass, reducing the waiting time for the lawn to establish. Additionally, sod is less susceptible to issues such as soil erosion and weed growth. At Alcolea Gardens, we install high-quality natural grass sod rolls that will immediately transform your outdoor space.

The installation of natural grass sod rolls is a process that requires precision and experience. At Alcolea Gardens, we begin by preparing the soil, removing any debris and ensuring a level ground. Then, we lay the sod rolls onto the prepared soil, tightly fitting them together to avoid gaps. After installation, the sod rolls need to be thoroughly watered to establish proper root growth.

Natural Grass Maintenance and Care

Once natural grass is planted or installed, it is important to follow a regular maintenance program to keep it green and healthy. We offer a wide range of natural grass maintenance services, from regular watering to fertilization, as well as lawn aeration and scarification, which are essential for maintaining optimal conditions.

The exact timing for lawn scarification or grass seeding depends on various factors, including the type of grass and weather conditions. Our gardening experts have the experience and knowledge to make the right decisions for your lawn, ensuring its long-term health and beauty.

In summary, whether you need grass planting, natural grass sod installation, or maintenance services to keep your lawn in excellent condition, we are your comprehensive solution for all your natural grass needs in Mallorca.

Keeping your natural grass healthy requires a combination of proper watering, regular fertilization, mowing at the correct height, and pest and disease control. Watering should be sufficient to penetrate the grass roots but without causing waterlogging, as excess water can lead to disease. Regular fertilization provides your grass with the essential nutrients it needs to grow lush and green. At Alcoleas Gardens, we offer a comprehensive lawn maintenance service that takes care of all these tasks for you.

Scarification is a process that removes excess moss and the layer of thatch (accumulated dead grass and roots) from your lawn, allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the grass roots. Generally, it is recommended to scarify the lawn at least once a year, preferably during spring or fall when weather conditions are milder. At Alcoleas Gardens, we have the tools and expertise to carry out effective lawn scarification, ensuring its long-term health and beauty.

Natural grass can be affected during periods of intense heat and drought, and maintaining it green and healthy can be a challenge. However, with proper watering, fertilization, and regular maintenance, it is possible to keep your lawn in good condition even in the most challenging conditions. At Alcolea Gardens, we offer a natural grass maintenance program that includes efficient watering, regular fertilization, proper mowing, and disease and pest control, ensuring that your lawn stays green and vibrant throughout the year.
