Spring is Here! Time to turn our sprinklers back on.
SPRING IS HERE!
This means it’s time to turn our sprinklers back on!
Bore Users: Remember watering days are now twice a week.
WA has had plenty of rain over winter and the ground is currently nice and moist – but it won’t take long for turf to become stressed if left too long without water!
Follow our 3 easy steps to get your lawn ready for spring:
Catch Cups are ideal and available complimentary here at Greenacres Turf Group; however any straight-sided container is suitable (Ice cream containers, coffee cups) marking 10mm up the sides. Start your irrigation system and assess that all the sprinklers are working and there are no obstructions eg. the grass has not grown higher than the sprinklers.
Place the Catch Cups randomly over the lawn, turn your sprinklers on for 10 minutes & then measure the contents to determine that your sprinklers are spraying evenly. Check sprinkler nozzles & filter and flush to remove any debris.
Most of our soils contain high amounts of silica which has very little moisture retention. To help the soil retain moisture we recommend that you apply a Soil Wetter & a Moisture Retainer. Greenacres recommends the Aqua Force be applied first according to the label rate followed by Bi-Agra at the label rate 5 days later & again at 4-6 week intervals during the warmer months.
The ground temperatures are now warming up, and your lawn will be wanting a balanced feed as it comes out of winter dormancy. Apply a well balance slow-release NPK fertiliser to help green your lawn up.
