Kikuyu Turf

Full Sun and looking for turf that repairs quickly?

If you have a backyard that is in full sun and gets plenty of wear and tear, KIkuyu turf grass could be a good option for you.

Kikuyu is a vigorous grower in spring and summer so be sure to keep the edges trimmed or it will invade garden beds in no time at all. With the growing pattern this enables it to recover quickly from wear whilst being quite drought resistance, it’s hardy but needs full sun.  In shade it will thin out and die.

With Kikuyu, all lawns a little different but don’t be afraid to leave the thatch a little higher giving it a great spongy feel to walk on. The great thing with Kikuyu, being a vigorous grower it will strangle weeds.

Summer Backyard Renovations

The feeling of walking on the soft, moist carpet of grass beneath the feet is an all-time favorite feeling.

With summer on the door step and time to move outdoors, the feeling of walking in the backyard barefooted is a feeling to behold. Along with beautifying the backyard, it serves a purpose as the earths living skin.

Different types of turf?

There are many different types of turf grasses that are available including Matilda Soft Leaf Buffalo,  Palmetto Buffalo, Prestige Buffalo Turf, Nara Native Turf, Stadium Sports Turf, Sapphire Buffalo and Kenda Kikuyu to name a few. In truth there really isn’t a big difference between the soft leaf buffalo varieties.  They all offer minimal differences in aspects like colour, shade availability, water usuage, the ability to withstand wear and tear and disease resistance. The one thing that we have found is that our professional landscape gardeners prefer to install Matilda.

Advantages of Turf Grass

Turfs have been recently proven to be the number one strongest erosion controlling methods out there. Turf is extremely good for the environment as it takes great amount of carbon dioxide and releases large amounts of oxygen adding beauty and health to the area surrounding the Turf. Thus having turf grass is extremely advantageous and is easily available on various online and offline platforms.

Lastly, buying instant turf in a roll has many advantages including rather than waiting for the seeds to grow into grass that consumes more time and water for the grass to grow. Get your new lawn today from Associated Turf and enjoy this summer outdoors with a fantastic looking backyard.

Fertilising your Lawn

With Autumn now upon us it is a great time to fertilise your lawn. There is still a bit of warmth in the ground and with the temperate conditions through the day fertilising now will give your lawn a great burst coming into winter and will reduce weed growth in the cooler months.

We recommend fertilising 3-4 times per year with a slow release lawn fertiliser or lawn builder which will keep your lawn looking green and healthy. For soft leaf buffalo lawns and kikuyu select a buffalo slow release fertiliser which will thicken your lawn, once again starving weed production.

Fertilising your lawn is essential as your plants need food to build a strong deep root system which toughens the grass through the hotter months and keeps bindies out of your lawn… nothing worse than walking in bare feet and being attacked from the ground up!

Sydney's Hot Weather

With summer well and truly upon us, lawns can get heat stressed very easily. To prevent this from happening good watering early in the morning will enable your lawn to survive and flourish.

Watering at night has the ability to bring on pests to your lawn like curl grubs which live in the roots of plants which can harm patches of your lawn so we recommend early morning watering.

Turf is a living plant to feeding and watering your lawn is essential to maintain it’s health.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe new year.

Lawn Mowing Heights in Spring

With Spring now well and truly with us and a bit of rain and sunshine, lawns are thriving at the moment. The temptation is to to lower the height of the mower so that you don’t need to mow as often.

Surprisingly this actually works in reverse! Lowing the mower height places the turf in shock and to recover it tries to grow faster.

Best practice is to keep nice growth and take the tops off enabling the turf to spread and fill in any patches that looked a little thin.

This time of year keep on eye on the weather and when possible mow just before it rains. Fertilise and reap the benefits of a lush green lawn… oh and yes this will starve weeds from your lawn also.

Laying Turf in Winter

We often get asked, “Can we lay new turf in winter?” The short answer is yes but the turf will remain dormant until the weather and the ground warms up in spring.

The process of establishing your new turf is the same but will take less water to establish. After a thorough soaking on laying the turf, water 2 days a week for the first 2 weeks and then once a week.  We don’t want to over water and leave the turf susceptible to disease.

In spring, once the warmer weather has arrived, give your turf a light fertilise with a product from the Scotts Lawn Builder range suitable to your turf variety and water in.

Laying turf in winter does have it’s advantages as the turf can be established and ready to thrive come summer time. Talk to Associated Turf about the best turf varieties for your area.
