Don’t mow your lawn too short or cut too much lawn off at once.
Don’t mow your lawn too short, as this can put your lawn under extreme stress and is an open invitation for weeds to set seed and spread. Avoid cutting off drastic amounts from your lawn. Cutting off more then one third off the leaf can cause damage to your lawn.
Mow your lawn regularly
Avoid long periods between mows – regular mowing is best.
Keep your lawn mower blades sharp
Keep your mower well maintained; sharp blades are crucial for a good cut. Blunt blades tend to tear, rather than cut the lawn which can encourage disease and cause damage to your lawn.
Lawn paint may sound strange, but it is a fantastic way to have a lush green lawn through the cold winter. As part of our commitment to making Australia greener, we’ve found a little way to ‘assist’. ColourGuard!
