Summertime in Australia can be extremely hot and dry, and this can cause all sorts of problems when it comes to your garden. Many people simply let their lawn die off during the summer, thinking that it is too much work to keep it healthy. However, it isn’t! As long as you use decent turf when you lay your lawn, you shouldn’t have any problems keeping it green and lush throughout the year.
Some of the most important things to do when it comes to keeping your lawn looking good over summer include:
- Give it plenty of fertiliser:
Plenty of fertiliser is important for your lawn throughout the year, but it is super important during summer. Many people think that because it is hot and dry, they don’t need to fertilise their lawn regularly. However, the truth is just the opposite. Since it is hot and dry during summer, fertiliser is consumed extremely quickly by both plants and microbes. It is important to put more on every six to eight weeks to make sure that your grass has enough food to grow.
