Grass Perth – How often should you water your grass in Perth
Once your grass has been established and your watering restrictions come back into play.It is recommended by turf growers to water on your designated watering days but water well.
Everyone’s water pressure is a little different so do a simple test with catch cups to see how
Many mls can be applied in 2 minutes. Grass can only absorb 10mls of water per watering session.
Calculate how many minutes to apply 10mls and set reticulation.
Tip: if you only are allowed to water on 2 days of the week, water morning and night on those days
In January, February and December to be able to apply the required amount.
EXAMPLE: Weekly requirements if no rain for Village Green Premium Kikuyu
January February 40mm
June July not required

Laying Your New Grass
OK – you have prepared your site, fertilised it and given it a good watering. Now it’s time to roll out the carpet.
Carry the turf required for the back lawns around to the back. Use planks for wheelbarrows, and smooth out wheel ruts and foot prints.
Lay the rolls out around proposed garden beds and along edges of paths and driveways first. The turf can be ‘sprung’ into the curved shapes often required of garden beds. For the benefit of appearance, you shouldn’t make sharp curves for garden edges, and at this stage, you should have the complete perimeter of your lawn shaped out.
Lay turf rolls parallel with the longest straight runs, making sure that the rolls are firmly butted up against each other so that there are no gaps. Fill in gaps by cutting rolls with a bread or steak knife. Don’t cut very small pieces, as these will dry out and die.
Immediately after planting, tamp the rolls down to form a smooth surface with a plate compactor. You can hire one from your local hire place. For larger areas, you will need to water your lawn as you lay it out to prevent it from drying out.
Care After Grass Installation
Keep the grass damp for several weeks following installation, but be careful not to over-water the area. Once the grass sods have become stabilized by developing a root system so that they cannot be lifted, they can be mowed. This can be done with either a rotary mower, or with a reel mower.
Mowing will usually be necessary about 2-3 weeks after planting in summer, and longer in winter.
Apply another application of Lawn Starter fertiliser about 1 month after installation to ensure healthy and even growth.
