Maintaining your Sir Grange lawn
If you want a high-quality zoysia grass for your lawn or any commercial projects, it’s difficult to go past Sir Grange. Sir Grange is known for being the best-selling breed of zoysia grass in the United States and this brilliant breed of grass is gaining popularity in Australia for being an aesthetically-pleasing grass that comes equipped with many different tolerances. However, despite being an incredibly hardy grass, it still needs some care every now and then in order to keep it at its best.
Watering your lawn
Sir Grange has been bred as a turf variety that’s used for golf courses, meaning that’s it has been bred to be able to withstand long periods of time in the sun without water. This means that Sir Grange needs far less water than other turf varieties. However, as is the case with most other turf varieties, it is best to water your Sir Grange more regularly during the dry and unforgiving Summer months and when the soil has been freshly laid, so that the turf anchors deeper into the soil.
Mowing your lawn
Another amazing quality that Sir Grange carries from being developed as a turf for golf courses is an ability to grow much slower than other turf varieties, which reduces the need for it to be regularly mowed. However, when your turf does need to be mowed, make sure that it’s cut to a short length so as to keep it looking neat and to prevent the overdevelopment of thatch, which can smother the grass beneath it if left to accumulate.
Fertilising your lawn
Sir Grange turf also requires far less fertiliser than other turf varieties, which was another feature that it would need as a high-quality turf variety for golf courses. In order to keep your turf at its best, it should be fertilised with a high-quality fertiliser only once a year in mid to late Autumn. As well as this, if you feel that your turf may need some vitamins or minerals that it can’t obtain in your soil, there are a range of vitamin supplements which can use to nourish your turf. If you’re in need of lawn supplements, there are many nurseries and turf farms who stock them alongside other turf supplies.
As it was initially bred to be used on golf courses, Sir Grange has many tolerances whilst still being an extremely soft and aesthetically-pleasing grass.
