If your lawn is looking patchy and thin after winter, there are a few things you can do to get it back in shape for spring.

  • The soils under your lawn can become compact during winter. Symptoms of compact soil are thin coverage and a profusion of weeds. A garden fork is an easy way to open the soil up and let in some air.
  • Scotts Lawn Builder Top Dress will help fix patchy or thin grass. It carries the red ticks that signify it’s a premium certified mix and complies with Australian standards.
  • Scotts Lawn Builder Top Dress contains a soluble fertiliser and a wetting agent, as well as organic matter to build better soil.
  • Lawns need to be fed as temperatures rise to grow thick, healthy and green. Scotts Lawn Builder Slow Release Fertiliser works slowly to build deeper roots and a stronger lawn.
  • The patented time-release technology ensures nutrients are released continually over 3 months. This means a lawn that’s more resilient, able to resist dry conditions, pests, weed invasions, and able to self-repair after heavy wear.
  • Scotts Lawn Builder Slow Release Fertiliser doesn’t require watering in as it is safe on all lawns and can be left until the next rain or irrigation, as long as it is applied according to instructions.
  • If you need to completely renovate a small area of your law, you can over sow with Scotts Lawn Builder Sun & Shade Seed. This includes a 3-month starter fertiliser for fast germination.
