The Festive Season Is Upon Us
Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like only yesterday we were ringing in the new year, and now, here we are, the busy festive season is upon us once again. Adelaide’s weather has given us a bit of everything recently, from dazzling sunny days to some wild storms that shook the windowpanes. With summer hopefully settling in for good this time, our gardens and lawns are about to become the stage for family gatherings, Christmas celebrations, and of course, the endless joys of the school holidays.
Keeping our gardens lush and our lawns vibrant is at the forefront of our minds. There’s something about a green, well-kept lawn that lifts the spirit, isn’t there? It’s the canvas for our children’s playful adventures and the backdrop to our festive celebrations. And if you’ve been holding off on that feed for your lawn, now’s the time to give it a boost as it kicks into its rapid growth phase.
Watering your garden and lawn wisely can make a world of difference. Doing it early in the day helps to ward off any potential fungal guests and ensures that every drop goes further. If mornings slip by in the rush, don’t fret – an evening watering session can be just as beneficial. The key is to water less often but more deeply. This encourages the roots to venture further into the soil, making your lawn more resilient to dry spells and giving weeds less room to take hold. If the water seems to be hesitant to sink into the soil, a wetting agent might just be the trick you need, helping water distribute more evenly, avoiding wasteful run-off.
For those who have had a new lawn installed, keeping it hydrated is essential, especially through these warm months. It’s like caring for a newborn – frequent, gentle attention is needed at first. With time, you can ease into a more relaxed routine, allowing the roots to chase the moisture deep into the ground, establishing a strong foundation for the future.
As summer takes the stage, consider raising the height of your mower. A little extra length on your grass can provide it with a shield against the harsh heat, holding onto precious moisture. It’s also a fantastic time to get those mower blades sharpened – a clean cut not only looks better but helps your lawn heal faster and stay healthy.
