Trevor chats to Karl and Ally from the Today Show and shares his tips and tricks for taking care of your lawn.

  • There are four things that you have to do to maintain your lawn; feed regularly, keep up with your weeding, mow weekly and most importantly, irrigation.
  • Make sure you use slow release lawn fertilisers. These release small amounts of nutrients every day, delivering the strongest, healthiest growth.
  • Unlike old fertilisers that polluted our waterways, slow release fertilisers are environmentally friendly.
  • Apply slow release lawn fertiliser every 3 to 4 months. Use the latest technology to get the best outcome.
  • Lawns don’t like competing for sunlight and nutrients, so make sure you keep weeds down. Applying a Weed ‘n’ Feed hose-on is a good idea.
  • You should mow your lawn once a week during the growing season. If you want a bowling green effect, mowing  2 or 3 times a week should do the trick.
  • Mowing keeps the lawn nice and strong, stimulates growth and takes out the weeds.
