Top tips for a luscious lawn
Angie Thomas, October 2015
A lush green lawn really sets off your house and garden, and can keep your home cooler in the hotter months. Here’s how to keep your lawn looking good:
- Use available water wisely, watering deeply but less frequently to encourage grass roots to grow deeper into the soil - making the lawn more drought tolerant.
- Raise the mower blades to a higher setting – this allows the grass to continue to absorb energy from the sun, and the longer grass shades the root zone on hot days.
- Fertilise your lawn with an organic based lawn food such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Concentrated Lawn Food – which combines fast acting nutrients and slow release organics to promote long term soil health.
