Searching for a lawn that needs a little less mowing?

We hear you – lives get busy and mowing your lawn isn’t always the first thing on your ‘to-do’ list after a long week at work.

So, what things should you look for and what kind of lawn should you choose when you want something a little less mowing-reliant? Take a look below for some tips and tricks and call us on (07) 5448 6398 for any further lawn help you may need.

Low-mow lawns

Turf that requires less mowing generally requires less watering and fertilising as well… so it is a little easier to manage all round. These kinds of grass are great choices for hard-to-reach areas, or locations that are tricky to regularly maintain.

Did you know that some Zoysia grasses can grow at ½ the rate of some couch breeds?

Sir Grange for Slow Growth

Sir Grange grass is one of the best options when it comes to a lawn that requires less mowing. It is a Zoysia matrella variety, that is capable of handling high wear once it is established. The reason behind its decreased need for mowing is it has a slow growth pattern, using around only 20% of the nutrients that other varieties use to keep looking good – it uses most of its energy for its large root system. This means less energy that is needed for leaf growth, which equates to slower growth. Sir Grange is also a great option for difficult locations, due to its low maintenance requirements.

Another benefit to Sir Grange is that once it reaches a height of around 15-20cm, it almost ceases growing. This means you don’t have to mow it at all once it gets to this height and looks great!

Zoysia grasses by nature do not grow very tall, that’s why in tropical climates you often see ornamental zoysia as weed protection in garden beds, or in public spaces that councils wish to mow infrequently.

Laying of low-mow lawn

If you are looking at the ‘perfect’ time to have low-mow lawn laid, the end of winter is prime when it comes to weather. Around 4-6 weeks before spring starts allows the turf to settle prior to spring/summer, however this does not mean you cannot lay Sir Grange or other slow growing turf at other times of year. Have a chat with your local turf professional and they will be able to help further.

Mowing your lawn less often sounds like a great option to a lot of homeowners and we totally agree. That is why we definitely suggest checking out Sir Grange as your next turf option, especially in areas that are tricky to maintain.
