Autumn is Approaching

While it doesn’t really feel like we’ve had a super hot summer, the weather the last few weeks of February have been fantastic. With Autumn approaching there are a few things you can be doing now to make sure that your lawn is in great condition leading into the cooler months.

A deep, thorough watering is more beneficial than frequent, shallow sprinkling. Aim to water your lawn in the early morning hours, when the cooler temperatures reduce water loss through evaporation. Giving your lawn a good drenching 2-3 times a week encourages deeper root growth, resulting in a lawn that’s more drought-resistant and less prone to disease and weeds. This method not only conserves water but also fosters a stronger, more resilient turf.

Standing water is a telltale sign of compacted soil. Compacted soil hinders water penetration and root expansion. Aerating your soil is a simple solution. Use a pitchfork or an aerating tool to perforate the ground, which improves water and nutrient absorption. For those with larger lawns, our team offers efficient aerating services with professional equipment. Additionally, consider applying a lawn wetting agent to further enhance water absorption and distribution.

Regular mowing in summer is crucial, but it’s the technique that counts. Adjust your mower to a higher setting to ensure you’re not removing more than a third of the grass blade length. While mowing more often might seem like a chore, it’s vital to avoid putting extra stress on your lawn during the scorching summer months. A sharp mower blade is equally important to prevent damage to the grass. Follow the ‘one-third’ rule and you’ll find there’s no need to remove the clippings – they’ll decompose rapidly, returning valuable nutrients to the soil.

Our turf is resilient, but it thrives with consistent care. As part of our commitment to your lawn’s health, Instant Lawn Adelaide is here to assist with fresh installations, regular upkeep, or specialised services tailored to your needs. Reach out to our team for expert advice and support to keep your lawn in peak condition throughout summer and beyond.

Whether you’re facing the unique challenges of the South Australian summer or simply striving for that perfect patch of green, a strategic approach to lawn maintenance is key. By focusing on efficient watering, combating soil compaction, and adopting smart mowing practices, you can ensure your lawn remains a vibrant oasis despite the heat. And remember, we’re just a call away to help you achieve the lush lawn of your dreams.
