Summer is finally on its way, which means it’s time to start prepping your lawn for the hot Summer months. Whether you are installing a new lawn, or already have an established area, there’s few simple things that you can do to help your lawn cope with our hot summer days.
Make sure you check your reticulation, so that your sprinklers are free from any grit or sand that can block your nozzles. Also make sure you have uniform coverage over your whole area. Most importantly, check that you are applying the right amount of water over your area. Grab some catch cups, and place over your area. Run your stations, and check that you are applying 10mls of water during your station run time. Adjust your timing accordingly.
It is crucial to apply a quality Wetting Agent like Aqua Force to your area. Perth has very sandy, non-wetting soils, that are hard to get “wet” without the help of such products. Combined with a Water Retainer, BI-AGRA, and applied correctly, your lawn will have no problems surviving the summer months. Grab a “Combo Pack” today and save.
Warm season varieties, like Sir Walter, Wintergreen and Kikuyu, are all growing at their peak during the warmer months of the year. Our Premium Slow Release Fertiliser, will give your lawn a controlled slow release of nutrient, allowing for easy mowing maintenance, and helps in keeping your lawn, healthy and green all year round.
Regular mowing through the summer months, will also keep your lawn in the best shape. Weekly mowing of warm season varieties is recommended, never taking more than a ⅓ of the leaf off at a time. This will ensure good, strong growth, without stressing the plant. Keeping you mower blades sharp, will also ensure that your lawn is given a nice clean cut, without damaging the leaf.
