The big three keys in lawn maintenance is mow, water and fertilizer. Keeping the moisture in a new lawn is very important until it is established. A new lawn will dry or shrivel up much quicker than a lawn that has been well established. Mowing your lawn on time and not too short is also a key aspect in a healthy looking lawn, its ok to have a lawn that is short but just remember to keep it that way. Mowing at a higher setting makes your lawn feel softer and look lusher. To Keep your lawn looking green and healthy it requires fertilizer, at Southern Cross Turf all our lawns are pre fertilized prior to delivery. However we recommend that you fertilize your lawn once in spring, summer and autumn.
