Mow every 5-10 days in the hot months; mow every 3-6 weeks in the cold months.
Use a slow release fertiliser one month after laying (applying fertiliser before this time has shown not to make a difference to lawn establishment). Use a complete fertiliser in early April and early September.
At other times of the year use a slow release fertiliser. If you need a quick green up, use a fertiliser high in nitrogen to promote a lush green lawn- e.g. Supergreen or organic based slow release fertilisers. In heat of summer avoid over fertilising or using manure based products.
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.
Infrequent, deep watering promotes a healthy lawn.
Over watering encourages excessive growth, disease and root rot.
It is best to water in the early morning; night watering is not recommended
