  • Lawns help us to relax, are aesthetically pleasing and reduce glare and traffic noise. Lawns help beautify the landscape and provide a sense of community pride.

  • Oversowing will rejuvenate the lawn and improve it’s appearance. It should be done in Spring or early Autumn when temperatures are suitable.

  • Firstly you must prepare the ground to a depth of 10cm remove stones and debris to make a suitable seedbed. Roll or rake the surface until a firm surface is achieved. A Starter Fertiliser can be raked into the surface before seeding.

  • If the weather is warm and windy it may be necessary to water the seedbed 3 to 4 times a day to prevent drying

  • Lawns provide a relatively safe area for children to play and are a low cost ‘injury prevention’ surface for games and sports. They allow rainfall to replenish groundwater for trees and shrubs. They are effective in soil erosion control.

  • For cool season grasses temperatures need to between 16 deg.C and 24 deg.C. (Southern States) For warm season grasses temperatures should be between 27 deg.C and 30 deg.C (Northern States)

  • Let the grass grow to a height of 5 to 6cm before the first cut and then only reduce the height by a third.
