INSTALLATION AND MAINTAINANCE OF YOUR TURF

Initial Installation

Turf Maintenance Guide

Mowing

  1. Mow every 7-21 days in the hot months and every 3-8 weeks in the cold months.
  2. Mowing height will vary: 2-5cm in sunny/lightly shaded situations, 5-7cm in heavier shaded situations.

Watering

  1. Water thoroughly and regularly after turf has been laid to encourage a deep and vigorous root system (turf will be able to fossick for water and therefore be more able to withstand hot dry conditions).
  2. Once the root system has fully established, water thoroughly only when needed-when a slight wilting is visible, usually once every 7-10 days in summer (on sandy soils more often), with much less or no water in cooler months.
  3. Remember that infrequent, deep watering promotes a healthy lawn.
  4. Over watering encourages excessive growth, disease and root rot.
  5. It is best to water in the early morning; night watering is not recommended.
