Though the warm weather in Queensland can mean some lovely summer days, it can also mean something a little pesky for your lawn – summer grass weeds.
If you did a hearty fertilise of your lawn in spring, it is likely due for another application. A majority of the common, slow release fertilisers will provide nutrients for your lawn for up to 12 weeks – this means that if you fertilised in early – mid spring, around this time is a great top-up choice.
If you were in a perfect world, you would have all the time you needed to do almost anything – Christmas shop when you wanted, clean the house before the relatives arrive and tend to your lawn and have it looking its best for when all the festivities begin. But, as we all know, unfortunately there aren’t 27 hours in the day and things aren’t always as organised, nor as planned as we would like. So, what can you do to get your lawn looking great in a hurry?
Although looking after your lawn may have some simple steps, many of us have been guilty from time to time of neglecting or forgetting to care for our turf.
Although it is easy to get a little carried away when it comes to organising a lawn reno – we know! – the best advice we can give you is to not go too early with any vigorous lawn maintenance activities. It is crucial to remember that your lawn needs to be actively growing and performing strongly during the warmer months before undertaking activities like top dressing or dethatching.
Contrary to popular belief, having a great looking lawn does not take a huge amount of time and money. Caring for your turf can actually be simple and easy, if you do the right things. Doing the right things means general lawn care is less time-consuming and you can get back to enjoying your yard!
One of the most frequent mistakes people make around their turf is that Winter is the season in which it can be ignored entirely. Common belief is that lawns die-off or go dormant and can simply be ignored until Spring, when it will bounce back good as new. Keeping your lawn healthy is a year-round process, and with a bit of care and attention your lawn can be the cream of the crop come Spring.
