The Best Time to Fertilise Your Lawn

You will need to regularly fertilise your Sir Walter lawn in order to keep it in the best condition possible.  Lawns that have deep, healthier roots can deal with stress much better. They can also keep their winter colour better and weeds are less apt to grow.

Sir Launcher is an excellent fertiliser to use when you first lay your turf. Sir Walter Premium Lawn Food is an excellent product to use, and can be applied at half strength when installing a new lawn, and then about 6 – 8 weeks later, apply at full rate.  It’s going to take about 25 gms per square metre to get a good coverage.  Once you have your lawn established, then you want to fertilise about every 8 weeks.

The best time to fertilise is right before it is going to rain, or as it is raining. This means you don’t have to use your water to get the fertiliser into the ground.  You can spread your fertiliser either with a fertiliser spreader or by hand.  However, if it doesn’t rain, you will need to go out and water the fertiliser in.

Regular fertilising will keep your Sir Walter lawn looking healthy, lush and green all year round.
