A good lawn fertiliser is an essential part of lawn care. It's simple to apply, inexpensive and helps you create a great looking lawn.
HOW TO FERTILISE
Measure your lawn (length x width). This is the area. You need 3kgs of fertiliser for 100sqm. Measure the correct amount of fertiliser and apply to a dry lawn evenly. Using Earthway fertiliser spreader is the best method. See our range of Earthway Spreaders here.
Fertiliser needs to be watered in soon after application. Use around 4mm of water or enough to irrigate the fertiliser prill into the thatch and off the leaf.
Be careful to sweep off all hard surfaces before irrigating as products can stain.
Fertilise a minimum of four times a year.
WHICH FERTILISER TO USE
Use our Landscape Range All Season Reno Fertiliser (N:P:K 22:5:7) for all established lawns. An application will last around 4-6 weeks.
A regular program of fertilising at least four times a year will ensure your lawn remains healthy. Fertilising at the correct rate will ensure the right amount of nutrition is applied.
Our Landscape Range Gold Pro Fertiliser (N:P:K 22:3:4) is for use when frequent rain or watering strips nutrients through the soil. It will provide a steady release of nitrogen over an extended period.
For added iron look to our Professional Grade Best Nitrex Fertiliser (N:P:K:I 20:0.85:2:5)
A Starter Fertiliser is essential when establishing a new lawn from seed, oversowing your existing lawn or getting your instant turf off to a good start. With a new lawn, apply a Starter Fertiliser at establishment then fertilise again approximately 4- 6 weeks after sowing.
View our Landscape Range KickStart Fertiliser (N:P:K 5:6:6) here. Apply it at a rate of 3kg of fertiliser per 100m2.
Some final tips for fertilising:
- Where possible apply your Fertiliser in two directions, dividing your fertiliser to ensure even coverage.
- It’s always best to apply to a dry area then water in well once you have completed the job.
