TLDR: need to fill a small space (11m2) in our backyard. If you were buying a unit, would a small patch of grass turn you off based on maintenance required?
We are in the process of renovating our 2Br unit to sell in maybe the next 12m. Only have the backyard to finish and it’s a small space 2.5m deep and maybe 15m long. Next to our deck (which takes up a decent portion of the space) there is a small area (2.5m x 4.5m) and have NFI what to do with it. Currently just clay/dirt
I’m trying to convince my wife turf would be a good idea..I think it looks good and once it’s in you don’t need to do anything else with the space (besides maintain the grass)
She is more keen on either high quality Astro turf or something like pavers with a mossy type plant between the pavers, which I think will be more prep work and more $$ than grass
Knowing it’s not about what we want, as we are going to sell, wondering if the Ozb community would see a small lawn as a turn off?
If anyone has put a small patch of turf in, how satisfying is it and is it taking up much time maintaining it??
