Your Environment

 

There are many things to consider before getting your new turf.

 

We grow our turf in the best possible Environment and give our turf the best possible Maintenance to ensure a quality product.

 

Your environment can be completely different so please inspect your intended site for any issues that may arise.  Please be aware of your surrounds and feel free to ask for advice on any factors before purchasing your lawn.

 

Areas that may not sustain lawn are:

  • Heavily shaded areas - Please consider other options if there is more than 70% shade.

  • Acidic soil - If there are trees dropping toxic leaves or there could be other contributing factors.  Acidic soil rejects the roots from penetrating your soil.

  • Too damp - If there is inadequate drainage your lawn will drown.

  • Too steep - The rolls may be washed away or the soil may wash away from underneath. You may need to pin your turf down until it has taken root.

  • Roots - Your turf may be competing with roots (water and area) from a neighbouring tree or plant.

 

 

 

 

Watering

 

Week 1 – Water your lawn 3-4 times, mainly during the heat of the day e.g 8am – 12pm – 3pm

Week 2 – Water 2-3 times a day for longer periods

Week 3 – Water once a day

Week 4 – Water twice a week

 

 

 

Mowing

 

  • To avoid scalping, the grass should not be allowed to grow too long before mowing!!!!!

  • Lawn may be mowed once the roots have taken hold. Check by trying to lift the rolls and ensure your turf has a tight bind to the soil. (If the rolls have not even slightly taken root within 2 weeks then something may be wrong with the soil)

  • Keep your lawn below 1 inch - never remove more than one third of the leaf.

  • For best results keep mower blades sharp.

  • Mow your lawn weekly for ease of maintenance.

 

 

 

Pests

 

Please use a preventative!

 

Apply the preventative asap. (Prevention is much better than trying to treat a damaged lawn)

See our Lawn Care section for information on how to Prevent, Detect, Treat and Repair your lawn from grubs.

We recommend using products containing Bifenthrin.

 

 

 

Fertilising (NOT for Zoysia Matrella)

 

  • Apply a Turf Starter just before laying so it is under your turf

  • After two weeks apply a fertiliser (we recommend using the Scotts lawn supplies from Bunnings, preferably one with grub control)
