Lawn Care for Beginners: Things to Remember When Fertilising Your Lawn

  1. 1. Lawn Care for Beginners: Things to Remember When Fertilising Your Lawn www.aviewturf.com.au
  2. 2. Fertilising your turf is an essential aspect of proper lawn care. Feeding your lawn with fertiliser is one of the most effective ways to ensure that the grass will remain uniform and maintain its original texture.
  3. 3. It also prevents the growth of weeds and improves your turf's durability, allowing it to recover faster from wear and tear. And more importantly, fertilising your lawn helps protect the grass from diseases.
  4. 4. If you have just planted your lawn, you might be wondering when is the best time to start fertilising it. According to lawn turf suppliers, you should wait at least five to six weeks after installation to fertilise the grass.
  5. 5. Then, you should regularly fertilise your lawn at least twice a year after that to make sure that the grass will remain healthy and will maintain its vibrant green colour all throughout the year.
  6. 6. It is also best to prepare your lawn for winter since the grass is more susceptible to damage during this time of the year. Many lawn care experts recommend fertilising your turf at the end of autumn.
  7. 7. This will make the grass stronger and more resistant to damage. It will also help ensure that your lawn will be able to endure low temperatures and stay green for as long as possible.
  8. 8. When purchasing fertiliser, keep in mind that the one used for your lawn is quite different from those used for your garden. Most bags of fertiliser have numbers on their label.
  9. 9. These numbers show the percentage of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium in them. Make sure you determine which type of fertiliser is ideal for your lawn to ensure best results.
  10. 10. But if you don't know which type you should get for your turf, it's best to consult lawn turf suppliers.
  11. 11. Meanwhile, when applying fertiliser, make sure you take all precautionary measures to prevent accidents or any unfortunate situation. According to lawn care experts, you shouldn't forget to use gloves or a hand trolley when spreading fertiliser.
  12. 12. Always remember that fertiliser contains chemicals that can be poisonous when ingested. As such, it's always best to be extra careful.
  13. 13. In case you don't know how much fertiliser you should feed your lawn, lawn care experts recommend leaving a small portion of the lawn out.
  14. 14. Then, apply the amount of fertiliser you feel is suitable for your lawn to the rest of your yard. Within two weeks, you should be able to see how much the grass has grown since you've spread the fertiliser.
  15. 15. This will let you gauge the amount of fertiliser you should use the next time you feed your lawn. After fertilising the turf, immediately water your lawn for 20 to 30 minutes to prevent the fertiliser from burning the grass.
