How should a lawn be cared for?
It is important to water the fresh laid lawn every day for the first 6 days, and then every second or third day. The lawn must absorb 2 cm of water (on each watering). Also, don’t cut the grass shorter than 5.5 cm. Mowing should take place once a week. Fertilizing is also very important, and its frequency depends on the kind of fertilizer and the time of year.
At what time of the day should grass be watered?
The best time is early morning.
Is it not better to cut the grass very short and wait for it to grow back?
Grass which has been cut too short dries out quickly and is less resistant to weeds. The best length is 5.5cm.
My grass does not have a uniform green colour, what is the cause?
A non-uniform colour may be due to various kinds of grass or unevenly spread fertilizer or insufficient amount of fertilizer.
Can one leave clippings on the lawn?
Too many grass clippings prevent oxygen from reaching the roots and cause compaction.
What fertilizers feed the grass best? When should one fertilise?
The best are slow-release mineral fertilizers from reputable companies like Schultz or Scott. DO NOT apply fertilizers to wet grass or on sunny days. It is recommended to water the grass after fertilizing. The best time to spread fertilizer is in the spring, summer and in the fall. Each season requires a different kind of fertilizer.
