Your questions answered by the turf experts
What size are the rolls of turf?
All our rolls are 1.8m long by 0.585m wide. 1 roll = 1 square metre.
How/when should I fertilise my lawn?
We recommend fertilising your lawn 3 times a year with Lawn Solutions Fertiliser. Check out our seasonal lawn care calendar for the best time of year to do so.
How long until I mow my new lawn for the first time?
Mowing a new lawn should be undertaken when no new slabs of turf can be picked up, when every slab has established into the turf underlay. Mow at the highest setting for the first couple of mows.
What can I do about urine burns on the grass from my dog?
This can be easily solved by adding dog rocks to your dog’s water bowl and the burn patches should stop. These are available for purchase from the Lawn Store.
I have purple coloured seed heads on my Sir Walter? How do I get rid of them?
When Sir Walter is hungry or in distress it will shoot out seed heads. This is Sir Walter’s way of going into survival mode and lets you know that it requires a feed with Lawn Solutions Fertiliser and a good watering.
Should I fertilise before I spray for weeds?
It can be done before or after fertilising. Using a weed control product will get rid of the weeds, following up with fertiliser will strengthen the grass to help choke out future weeds and kill them at a faster rate. By fertilising first you are also feeding the weeds, but it doesn’t really matter provided the weeds are treated with a weed control product shortly after.
How does Grub Guard work?
Simply use pre-mixed Grub Guard and spray the affected and surrounding areas. Grub Guard is not hazardous and therefore no gloves are needed, it is worth noting that some grubs may take up to 2 applications.
When should I use Lawn Rescue?
Lawn Rescue can be used as soon as the turf is laid as a starter fertiliser if Sir Launcher was not applied underneath. This can also be used as a lawn multivitamin or a ‘quick fix’ to pretty up the lawn rapidly, keeping in mind that Lawn Rescue is only a tissue fertiliser fertilising only the leaf.
Do I need to top dress my lawn?
Topdressing is only recommended for fixing any uneven levels in your lawn that may have appeared over time. Other than this, top dressing is not really required. Read this article on Top Dressing your lawn.
