NEW LAWN CARE  

  • For the first four weeks, keep the planted areas well watered, early mornings with a fine sprinkler.          
  • Chemical or organic fertilizer must be added to boost the growth, but care should be taken not to burn the new grass.          
  • Water well before and after application.          
  • Traffic over planted areas should be kept to a minimum during the establishment period (1 month).          
  • Weed the lawn regularly. Avoid using chemical weed killers.          
  • Once the roots have become established, the lawn can be levelled with a light top dressing of soil. (use sand/compost mix for clay soils and light loam compost mix for sandy soils).          
  • Do no smother the lawn with top dressing. Blades of grass should stick out above the lawn dressing after application.          
  • To prevent fungus infection, avoid watering after 2 pm.          
  • Ensure that all the grass cuttings are collected after mowing.          
  • Avoid over compaction and aerate lawn from time to time by spiking same with a garden fork.

AVOID CUTTING GRASS TOO LOW. IF IN SHADE DO NOT CUT THE GRASS AT ALL OR VERY SELDOM.
