  • 1. Turf Care 101: Things to Remember When Watering and Mowing Your Lawn http://www.aviewturf.com.au/lawn-care/establishing-your-new-lawn/
  • 2. Observing proper turf care is one of the best ways to ensure a healthy and vibrant-looking lawn.
  • 3. No matter how resistant to diseases or tolerant to drought your lawn is, it can still become sick and unhealthy if you fail to look after it for an extended period of time.
  • 4. Watering and mowing are just some of the basic tasks that you need to carry out regularly to keep your lawn in good shape. Here are some practical tips on how you should do them.
  • 5. According to experts, the lawn should be thoroughly soaked with water if it has just been laid out. Then, during the first week, it should be watered daily for about 20 minutes in the evenings.
  • 6. Lawn care experts believe that such a practice will help the lawn turf develop a strong and deep root system, which can help ensure its longevity and durability.
  • 7. During the first year of planting a new lawn, it is advisable that you water your lawn every two to four days, especially if the days are a bit warmer.
  • 8. In the cooler months, on the other hand, turf care experts recommend watering your lawn once every three to five days. Always remember that like all species of plants, your lawn needs water to survive.
  • 9. So even if your chosen type of grass requires less water as compared to other types of lawn, it is still very important that you water it regularly to prevent the grass from drying out.
  • 10. Aside from watering your lawn turf, mowing it is something that you need to do regularly to ensure optimum condition for your lawn as it promotes the growth of new grass.
  • 11. As a rule of thumb, lawns should be trimmed four to six weeks after first laying them out. However, make sure you avoid cutting more than 15 millimetres off the grass.
  • 12. Some people make the mistake of trimming their lawn excessively, thinking that if they do so, they won't have to mow their lawn for a very long time.
  • 13. According to many turf care experts, this is a big no-no. Too much trimming can stress the grass out and cause it to sustain serious damages.
  • 14. When mowing your turf, therefore, be sure to observe the appropriate length of grass to be cut.
  • 15. After mowing the lawn, make sure you remove the trimmed blades of grass. If you leave the clippings as is, they might suffocate and kill the grass.
  • 16. As such, don't forget to carry out this simple turf care procedure to keep your lawn healthy and in great shape.
