Installing Ready Lawn

1. CLEAR THE SITE: It is important that the area on which you intend to lay your lawn is cleared of stones, sticks and other debris. An unobstructed surface is essential if the final product is to look it’s best.
2. SPRAYING: Prior to laying Readylawn, any existing lawn or regrowth should be chemically killed and removed. Apply herbicide such as RoundUp to the existing lawn. Read and follow label instructions. A second application two weeks later will control any areas missed and generally ensure a more complete kill of grass and weeds.
3. CULTIVATION: You will need to cultivate the ground on which it will be layed to a depth of 100mm (4 inches). This can best be done with a rotary hoe. If necessary, extra soil should be added to fill any depressions.
4. LEVEL AND CONSOLIDATION: The surface should be raked and then trodden down by foot - or a light garden roller. Once you have a firm surface, Turfgrass Specialist’s Starter Fertiliser should be spread at the rate of 50g per square metre (approx 1 handful) and then raked lightly to incorporate the fertiliser.
5. LAYING: Install your Readylawn immediately upon delivery. In hot weather, protect unlaid Readylawn by placing rolls in a shaded area, covering with moist sacking and/or sprinkling with water. Begin installing Readylawn along the longest straight line, such as a driveway or path. Butt and push edges and ends against each other tightly. Avoid gaps or overlaps. Stagger the joints in each row in a brick-like fashion, using a sharp knife to trim corners. Avoid leaving small strips at outer edges as they will not retain moisture. By laying a board on the laid turf, you can walk and kneel on the area without leaving unwanted footprints and other indentations. On slopes, place the Readylawn across the slope and lay from the bottom up.
6. TAMPING: Once you have finished laying your lawn, take care to tamp the seams and joins and ensure firm contact is made between the new turf and the soil.
7. TRIMMING: Unwanted ends can be removed by trimming with a sharp knife.
8. ROLLING: After installing your Readylawn, roll the entire area to improve turf/soil contact and remove air pockets.
9. WATERING: Give your new lawn at least 20-30mm (1 inch) of water within half an hour of installation. Water daily or more often, keeping Readylawn moist until it is firmly rooted (about 2 weeks). Then less frequent and deeper watering should begin. Be certain that your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry or windy periods. Water areas near buildings more often where reflected heat dries the Readylawn.

Aftercare Maintenance Tips

If you have recently laid turf, then it will need to be kept moist. Turf lawns require 20-30 minutes of water over the entire lawn morning and evening until firmly rooted. Generally for lawns, this initial watering schedule should be carried out for the first 2 or 3 weeks.

It is important to note that increased watering may be required near buildings and walls where reflected heat can dry the grass. During this initial period, the lawn will be very soft and it is recommended to stay off as much as possible.

Following the initial 2-3 week period, it is time to start regular maintenance watering. A regular schedule of deep morning waterings of around 20-30 minutes is recommended. During warm summer months, 2 to 3 waterings per week may be necessary whereas one good watering per week will generally be sufficient in moderate weather. Remember, soil types, weather, rainfall and the quality of lawn desired should all be considered when determining needs.

Turf should be mown no more than 2 weeks after installation. It is important not to let lawns grow too long as this can cause extensive damage. Timing of each mowing should be based not on the calendar, but on the rate at which the grass grows, as different areas and times of the year can demonstrate quite different rates of growth.

Ideally your lawn should be mowed at 20mm. However, this can vary depending on the time of year - you may like to raise your mower 2-3mm during the summer months.

It is a good idea to mow your lawn in different directions each mowing as this will assist the blades in maintaining an erect habit. Maintaining a sharp blade is necessary as a dull blade will shred the grass. Your mower blade should be sharpened at least once a month to maintain a clean cut for optimum growing results.

Fertilising is important to keep your lawn healthy. So a light application of Turfgrass Specialists Warm-Season fertiliser should be applied after 4-6 weeks. This will help to further the lawns development. Once a lawn is established, 8-10 week applications of fertiliser between spring and autumn, and Turfgrass Specialists Cool-Season fertiliser during the cooler months will assist in maintaining a healthy, green lawn.

Depleting fertiliser levels will leave the lawn looking faded or yellowish in colour - this is a good sign that it might be lacking fertiliser. When applying fertiliser, ensure it is well watered in, ideally apply during a period of rain. Be sure to read the fertiliser label prior to application and follow all recommendations. Failure to do so may result in burning or other detrimental effects.

When applying fertiliser, try to use either a hand or wheeled spinner as this weill give a more even distribution, minimising the risk of striping on the lawn caused by missed areas. If you are unable to obtain a spinner, then pour fertiliser into a bucket and distribute by hand, using an upward motion when throwing to maintain a more even distribution

Weeds will appear in your lawn - they derive from seeds which have lain dormant in the ground or which have been carried in by wind, birds or in contaminated lawnmowers.

For turf lawns, weeds will germinate over a longer period of time than seeded lawns due to the fact that the plant is already established. Regular applications of Banvine to establish lawns twice yearly during spring and autumn will control most flat leaf weeds. However, for more invasive types of plants such as Kikuya and Paspalum, it is recommended that you spot spray using Round-Up or remove by using a small knife and cutting around the root. Removing any weeds will leave bare areas which need patching. This can be done by applying lawn mix soil to the affected area and reseeding, ensuring seed is well covered. It is important when using any chemicals, that you follow all label instructions.

When applying chemicals to lawns, you need to use a garden knapsack with a fan nozzle. It is important when spraying, to walk over the lawn at a steady pace, watching the edge of the fan, ensuring a 30% overlap. This is done to obtain a full, even coverage.
