You have just laid your fresh new lawn

You have just laid your fresh new lawn, now its time to look after it! The most crucial aspect in the first month is to water your lawn well so it can establish and remain healthy. Depending on the time of year, you should be watering deeply every day for the first 3 weeks in hotter weather. Don’t be alarmed if the corners and edges of the turf pieces begin to yellow slightly, this is pretty common with new lawns.

Try to keep traffic of your new lawn as much as possible until it has rooted in. After about 4 weeks (depending on the time of year) your lawn will be ready for its first mow. Before doing this, ensure you cannot lift any of the slabs up to ensure they have rooted into the soil.

When you are mowing for the first time, mow on a slightly higher setting then normal then slowly bring it down to your preferred height over the next 2 or 3 mows. Continue watering a couple of times per week over this establishment period to ensure the turf doesn’t dry out.

After about 6 weeks your lawn will be due for A fertilise to really finish the establishment period off. This should be done with a good fertiliser and watered in well after application.

Now, its time to get out there and enjoy your lawn! Remember to fertilise every 8-10 weeks and water well.

Mowing your lawn

You have to make sure that you do not mow your lawn too low as this can really damage and put stress on your lawn which leads to the appearance of weeds, which is not a good look. Below are some mowing guidelines you should follow. You should use the higher height in winter and the lower height in summer:

  • All types of Buffalo’s………………………3-5cm
  • All types of couches………………………1.5-3cm
  • Kikuyu………………………………………3-5cm

If you have your lawn at a high height be sure not to go in and mow it on a low setting straight away. You have to get it down to the desired height gradually by lower the blades slowly over a period of time.
