Back to life party

Bringing your backyard back to life

Many of us have held barbecues, a get-together or backyard sports events. These activities usually leave our lawns in desperate need of TLC.

Backyard party

The simplest way to nurture your lawn back to full health is to give it time to recover. Like you, your lawn needs to be left alone to rest after a big event. Keep the kids and pets away so your lawn (and you) can relax and focus on rejuvenation.

Recovery

If the event was a particularly big one, you may need to do more than just give it a rest. If the lawn is flattened from excessive traffic, try raking the grass lightly to encourage the blades to stand up again.

Aerating, fertilising and resuming your normal watering routine, will also encourage growth and help the nutrients penetrate to the roots of the grass. Within a few days your lawn should be looking much healthier.

Preparation

Like any great event, the best way to ensure your lawn is durable enough to recover from these events happens during preparation.

Take some simple steps in preparation to have your lawn in the best condition possible. This assists it it to make a speedy recovery.

  • Mow your lawn a little higher just before the event. This will leave your lawn nice and soft and also help to limit some of the compaction of the soil underneath.
  • If your lawn is already looking a little worse for wear and you need to get it looking great in a short amount of time, we recommend a liquid fertiliser. Liquid fertilisers stimulate, support, and protect new root growth in turf and are the perfect solution for tired, slow growing lawns. Liquid fertilisers are also great to use after an event in aiding the recovery process.
  • If your lawn isn’t looking as green as you would like, and there simply isn’t enough time to get the green up you are looking for, ColourGuard is the solution. ColourGuard is a natural turf colourant sprayed onto your lawn that is absorbed by the leaf to give you a natural improvement in colour instantly.

ColourGuard is available through our Lawn Store.

Following these steps, you will have your lawn fit and ready for the next big event! If not, give us a call to help you determine your next steps.

  • Just a quick message to say a big thank you to the driver who delivered the Turf on Saturday. He placed the turf in positions that made it easier for our guys to lay the turf. Thanks again.

  • Thank you Marcus & Joe for such excellent customer service. Marcus gave us good advice on what turf to use and had no problems coming to offer his advice a second time to help us keep to our budget. Joe and his team were polite, friendly and efficient and did a terrific job on our very large backyard. It looks amazing. We've mowed it twice now and it looks like it has been there forever.
