Guide on How to Establish Kikuyu Turf in your Perth Lawn
When establishing a new lawn, people often overlook the importance of a good quality soil. The right soil will give your lawn the best possible start and help to prevent nutrient deficiencies and water problems.
Lovegrove Turf strongly advises incorporating Bentonite Clay into sandy Perth soils. Bentonite is a natural clay product with no added chemicals, it provides long term benefits for water and fertiliser efficiency which saves you money and time. To have the best outcome Bentonite needs to be incorporated into your soil with organic matter like Humus.
Kikuyu lawn has a short establishment time. Where other lawns could take up to two years to fully establish, Kikuyu can take only three months. This means that for areas where traffic cannot be avoided you will have a shorter waiting period before being able to use the lawn.
If you are purchasing Kikuyu for a high traffic area it is recommended to reduce the traffic for the first 4 weeks. In the warmer months Kikuyu should establish quickly, however it is still important to monitor wear and tear during this early period.
Lawn should not be mowed until rolls have produced adequate roots. This should happen between 2 and 4 weeks and can be confirmed by checking that the rolls have secured themselves to the soil.
All lawns produce thatch as this is a natural byproduct of healthy growth. Thatch will prevent water and nutrients from getting to the roots where they are needed. This can be removed through verti-mowing and should be done at least once a year.
For establishing or repairing of turf, the application should be 10kg per 50m2 of Eco-Prime NPK Red
For optimum health of your lawn it is recommended to fertilise at a maintenance rate of 10kg per 100m2 every 6-8 weeks for 6 months after installation and every 12 weeks there after.
Remember, always water thoroughly to activate the fertiliser and prevent any possible leaf burn.
