Lawn care

A standard plan of action will be:

• Check your lawn for thatch. This is an accumulated layer of dead material which prevents water and fertilisers from penetrating the soil. If you have a Kikuyu lawn, a short, close mow is what you are looking for, so set your lawnmower quite low. Other lawn varieties do not require low cuttings. Thatch can be removed by using a good strong, metal rake. This makes good compost!
• Aerate the lawn by pushing a garden fork into the soil (preferably when wet) at a spacing of 100 mm and a depth of 150 mm. Alternatively, you can hire a lawn spike aerator.
• If you had to remove thatch, fertilise the lawn with superphosphate or 2:3:2 at 60g/m². If no thatch had to be removed, fertilise the lawn with 3:2:1 (28) SR at 45g/m². Water well after fertilising.
• Level out any depressions in the lawn by filling it in with a good quality, weed-free lawn dressing, but do not cover the lawn with more than 3 cm of lawn dressing at a time. This will improve the soil structure and will add essential organic matter. Water well, and keep upper soil layer moist until new growth shows.

If your lawn shows signs of distress caused by disease or insects, it is best to call in professional help to identify and solve the specific problem.

A consistent lawn care program - regular mowing, watering and fertilising - ensures that the lawn stays healthy and attractive – the perfect backdrop for a cool summer garden.
