Should I improve my soil?
Watering restrictions in Perth have forced us to think about new ways to save water. The use of plants that are more suited to our climate is an important aspect of this so choosing a deep rooting, warm season grass is the best option, however this will not do on it’s own.
Simply adding dynamic lifter to our gutless sandy soils will not support a thriving healthy lawn on two watering days a week.
After much researching, we believe the addition of calcite clays such as Bentonite and organics like humus or compost will greatly improve the soils ability to hold water, resist water repellency, and increase biological activity.
What does this mean for you? Reduced fertiliser use and improved lawn health with the minimal watering allocations.
