Learning how to take care of your lawn? Whether you have recently installed brand new rolls of turf or are just looking to maintain your well-established grass, fertilising is a great way to achieve a sturdy-looking lawn. As Sydney’s leading turf supplier, we know exactly what a good fertilising schedule can do for your turf. If it was a healthy, vigorous good looking lawn you were after, then fertilising is exactly what you need.
When sticking to a frequent schedule, a healthy fertilised lawn remains uniform and maintains its original grass species, being usually weed-free.
The regular growth of a well-fertilised lawn helps decrease the amount of mowing. It is also stronger and less susceptible to diseases, stress and damage.
We recommended waiting at least 5 weeks after installation to fertilise your new lawn. A regular routine of fertilising every 6 – 8 weeks should then be implemented.
You should be fertilising heavily in autumn (March and April), to ensure the lawn stays strong as it goes into winter. Due to winter being a peak stress time, this can help take any stress off your lawn.
By continuing heavy fertilising in early winter, you will keep the lawn as green as it can be for as long as possible.
Lawn fertilisers are very different from standard garden fertilisers. We recommend choosing a lawn fertiliser that has about twice as much nitrogen as potassium, but with only 1-2% phosphorous.
If you were looking for the best possible fertiliser to keep your lawn looking strong and healthy, give us a call so we can recommend the best product for your lawn. This is especially important with soft leaf buffalo grass such as Sir Walter as the best product for these varieties is a slow-release fertiliser such as a Sir Walter fertiliser, which is available for purchase from our farm.
When applying the fertiliser, spread the fertiliser evenly with a gloved hand or with a hand trolley. Water the fertiliser in immediately to prevent it from burning the grass.
You can also use a drop fertiliser trolley to apply fertiliser on larger lawns. Liquid hose-on fertilisers can also make fertilising large areas easier.
