TURF MAINTENANCE - LAWN CARE

The basics of lawn care maintenance can be easily broken down in to eight main aspects:

  • Mowing
  • Pest Control
  • Watering
  • Disease Control
  • Fertilising
  • Lawn Weeds
  • Dethatching
  • Aerating 

Mowing

Mowing regularly will encourage growth of the lawn plants and over time lead to a thicker lawn, which is more resistant to weeds and pest infestation. During winter you can mow less frequently. During summer leaving the grass a little longer will provide additional protection against water evaporation and limit sun exposure to the soil. Always use a mower that has sharpened blades to avoid damaging the plants and never remove more than one third of the plant. For more information on Mowing click here.

Pest Control

Pests, such as lawn grubs, should be treated as soon as they are identified to limit the size of the infestation and the amount of damage that they cause to the lawn. Pesticides and insecticides are available to treat specific pests and are suitable to different varieties of lawn – make sure you get the product that is right for the lawn type you have.

Watering

Longer and less frequent watering is recommended over shorter and more frequent watering to ensure that your lawn establishes a strong, deep and healthy root system. Ensure that the entire lawn receives adequate water – usually 2.5cms at one time. For more information on Watering click here.

Disease Control

If fungal disease does take hold a fungicide treatment may be required as part of your lawn maintenance programme. For more information on Disease Control click here.

Fertilising

Once or twice a year you should apply a slow-acting granular fertiliser that will release nutrients gradually over a period of several months and will strengthen the lawn’s root system. For more information on Fertilising click here.

Lawn Weeds

All lawns will suffer from lawns from time to time. For a few weeds, simply pulling them out should solve the problem, however for a large amount of weeds or a large area of lawn then an herbicide application may be warranted. Always use a product specific for the variety of lawn you have to avoid damaging the lawn further and be on your way to a weed free lawn. For more information on Weed Control click here.

Dethatching:

A large or heavy part of thatch (parts of the lawn plants that have died naturally and collects around the base of the lawn plants) will keep air and water from reaching the soil below. Thatch denser than 6mms should be removed through a brisk raking or a power de-thatcher. For more information on Dethatching click here.

Aerating

Aerating is used to open up soil which has been compacted from a high amount of traffic. Either use manual or powered methods to aerate the soil – both use the same concept of removing narrow sections of the soil to form shallow holes allowing water and nutrients to reach the root system.

Client Feedback

Our excellent experience with Daleys Turf started when Harley Schenk arrived at our home to assess our requirements for a new front lawn. His expertise coupled with his friendly manner and detailed explanation created an immediate confidence that assurred us we had chosen the best company for our needs. Harley arrived on schedule, was well presented and wasted no time in preparing the quote. On the day of installation again he arrived on time with his colleague Patrick and together they carried out the task. They were painstaking in their efforts in preparing the site and laying the new turf. I have witnessed many lawns being laid in our suburb and I can honestly state that my lawn stands out from the rest, due to the quality of the product and the meticulous standard of Harley's workmanship. If you think your lawn is in need of replacement do not hesitate to engage Harley at Daleys Turf, you will not be disappointed.

We have no hesitation in recommending Daley's Turf to you. They have delivered a first rate product in a professional manner. There was great communication with the company. The turf was ordered, an onsite inspection and discussion of alternatives and in no time we have a beautiful lawn. Special thanks to Harley for making it happen.

Terry and Harley worked absolute wonders! So happy with our new lawn... from start to finish they were really easy to deal with and offered great advice! As soon as it was laid it looked like it had been there forever and it took to the soil beautifully! Terry was kind enough to give me his sprinkler and tap timer when he noticed ours had been broken - above and beyond! Pictures just under 4 weeks after installation - front before mow, inside fence after it's first mow! These are unedited... it's so green!! Thank you Daleys Turf!
