Keeping Your Lawn Healthy in July

Well, Winter has certainly arrived and with we have finally had some rain! In most places we have had enough soaking rain to actual make a good impact on our lawns and gardens. Winter can be a quiet time for lawn care, but there’s still plenty to keep an eye on to ensure your lawn stays healthy and ready for spring.

Here are some tips to help you manage your lawn in Adelaide this July, including why winter is a great time to lay new turf.

First, let’s talk about fertilising. If you missed the chance to fertilise in autumn, it’s best to hold off until your lawn is more active. During the colder months, your lawn enters a hibernation mode. This means it’s not actively growing and can’t fully utilise the nutrients from fertiliser. Instead of wasting your resources, consider using a product like Colourguard Plus. This handy tool can give your lawn a lush green tint and protect it from frosty conditions, making it look vibrant even in winter.

Mowing is another task that changes during winter. If your lawn still needs a trim, remember to raise the blades on your mower. Cutting the grass too short can expose it to the cold and make it more susceptible to diseases. Since you’ll likely mow less frequently, take this opportunity to maintain your mower. Sharpen the blades and ensure everything is in good working order for when spring arrives.

Keeping your lawn free of fallen leaves and clippings is essential in winter. These can block sunlight and trap moisture, creating a breeding ground for diseases. Regularly clearing debris ensures your lawn gets the light and air it needs to stay healthy.

Weeds don’t take a break in winter, so it’s important to stay vigilant. Regularly check your lawn for weeds and remove them as soon as they appear. You can either pull them out by hand or use a selective herbicide to keep them at bay.

Now, let’s look at why winter is a great time to lay new turf. Many people worry that the cold weather will hinder the process, but it can actually be quite beneficial. One of the biggest advantages is water conservation. During winter, the turf doesn’t need as much water to establish, saving you time and resources. Additionally, because the grass is dormant, you won’t have to mow it as frequently. Water the new turf thoroughly after laying, and keep it moist for the first few weeks. Even in winter, it’s important to maintain some moisture to help the roots establish. As the turf settles, it will be ready to thrive come spring. By the time summer arrives, your new lawn will be well-established and lush. If you have any concerns or questions about the process, our team is always ready to help. We offer expert advice and services to make sure your lawn looks its best year-round.

Winter lawn care in Adelaide is reasonably simple but your lawn will require monitoring and maintenance. Hold off on fertilising, water only when necessary, and mow with caution. Keep your lawn free of debris and stay on top of weed control. If you’re considering laying new turf, winter is an excellent time to do it. With the right care, your lawn will be ready to flourish when warmer weather returns. Happy gardening!
