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!
