Fertilising your Lawn
Regular applications of fertiliser are essential for strong, healthy and deep rooted lawns.
A mixture of organic and artificial fertiliser is recommended to promote steady growth, and the best times to do that are Autumn and Spring.
Depending upon your soil, it may be necessary to fertilise more in the first couple of years until the roots of the turf have fully established.
For an even distribution use a fertiliser spreader. You can purchase a hand held or a push along version from Bunnings.
Treating Lawn Grub and Army Worm
Both lawn grub and army worm are prevalent in South East Qld. They can devastate a lawn within a matter of days. They can also re-infest numerous times during the season.
- Due to the rate at which grubs feed (and destroy your lawn) use a fast acting insecticide such as Lawn Solutions Grub Guard
- If rain coming apply the treatment while the rain is falling.
- If you are treating during a dry spell remember to water the insecticide into the lawn.
- Apply the treatment again in two weeks – eggs can take two to five weeks to hatch.
- Use a preventative treatment of Acelepryn which lasts up to 6 month and is bee friendly
