How to make your turf look it's best
All year round it’s important to make sure you manage weeds.
To ensure a good lawn all year round we recommend a visual check regularly for weeds, the sooner you spot them the easier to exterminate them. If there is a small amount of weeds pull them out by hand, however a special weed spray may need to be applied (contact us for details about broad leaf weed control spray)
Water Water Water
All living things need water, and Instant Lawn is no different. However, avoid watering in the middle of the day as this can cause sunburn on the turf through magnification. We recommend watering morning and evening, especially in Summer and Spring. Contact Us about an irrigation system if you don't have one already.
