2. Give your lawn a daily water

Water daily, depending on weather conditions, until it is firmly rooted. Check the rooting by carefully lifting a corner of the turf after 10 – 14 days.

3. Mow once established

3. Mow once established

Your new lawn should be mowed within 10 to 14 days, depending on the season. The first mow should be a light trim, making sure not to scalp your new lawn.

4. Maintain a mowing height

Once your lawn is firmly established, you should mow it to a desirable height and maintain it at this level as much as possible.

5. Mow to the season

Lawns require more mowing in the summer months and less as the temperature drops. It will need little to no mowing at all during the winter.

6. Water to the weather

Your lawn, like all garden plants, needs a healthy watering and the amount of water it needs will depend on the weather conditions.

7. Fertilise through the year

Fertilising will help build your lawns health. We recommend you fertilise your lawn 6 times a year with a good lawn food. It is always good practice to use a fertiliser that is made for your specific variety.

You must always water your lawn immediately after fertilising. This way you can reduce the chance of your grass burning and can allow the fertiliser to activate.
