Think Wintergreen Couch is right for you?
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.
A great soil additive product we recommend using is Bentonite Clay. 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.
This lawn will not take long to establish if you follow Lovegrove Turf’s watering and fertilising schedule. It is important to limit and monitor any heavy traffic areas when your lawn is relatively new.
Once Wintergreen Couch lawn has established it can cope quite well with moderate to high traffic. This should not take long with this quick growing grass.
Once your lawn has produced adequate roots you are ready for the first mow. This should take between two and four weeks depending on the season and position of your lawn.
A reel mower is preferable to keep Wintergreen Couch lawn looking at it’s best, as the scissor action is perfect for the fine blade of the grass.
Cut at regular intervals (weekly is best in the warmer months) so it doesn’t get too long and this will avoid scalping which can place the turf under stress. Never remove
more than one third of the leaf per mowing session. Edging regularly is a must to avoid this grass from invading garden beds.
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.
