Lawn Care

Watering Your Lawn

Depending on weather conditions, give your lawn at least 25 mm of water within 30 minutes of installation. Over the next two weeks, keep your turf well hydrated until its roots have been firmly established. Be sure your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry or windy conditions. Check your turf for moisture levels and the establishment of new roots by carefully lifting it in areas. Once your turf cannot be lifted, watering can be spaced to once or twice a week depending on weather conditions. It is best to water your lawn in the morning, and the frequency of watering depends on the season and climate. As a general rule, you should not water every day as this results in a shallow root system. Ideally, a lawn should be watered twice a week in summer and much less often in winter. The team at Greener Lawn can offer you advice on how best to water your lawn.

Mowing & Fertilising

When mowing your lawn for the first time, use a high cutting depth so as not to damage the roll edges. Subsequently, the cutting depth can be lowered. The frequency with which you will need to mow your lawn depends on the variety of turf, the quality of the soil, how often you water and fertilise your lawn, and of course, the season. Keeping a lawn healthy requires fertilization. Fertilise your lawn twice in spring (September & October) and twice in autumn (March & April). Greener Lawn has a great range of fertilisers that you can buy online!

Insect & Weed Protection

Insecticides and herbicides should be used only when the need arises. Greener Lawn has a range of products to keep your lawn free from weeds and lawn-damaging insects. Please see our FAQs on how to treat your lawn for Army grubs.
