Expert Turf Tips

  • From this ……to this……… just 6 weeks - The Turf Growers Association WA has worked collaboratively with the Water Corporation to build this really good little guide on “How to bring your brown lawn back to life”. The usual reflex with a brown lawn is to give it a good soak, but it’s not just water your lawn needs to survive the heat.… Continue Reading
  • Sprinkler TIP - Avoid using a combination of sprinkler types in a single irrigation station. Each sprinkler type distributes water at a different rate.

For example, pop up sprinklers generally take between 13 and 20 minutes to put down 10mm of water, while rotary sprinklers… Continue Reading
  • Summer Tip - With the heat of summer upon us, it’s time to check if you’re irrigating your lawns and gardens effectively.

Plastic carpet can be hotter than concrete during hot weather. There are examples of plastic carpet aka synthetic turf” reaching temperatures of 65 to close to 80 degrees on a 38 degree Celsius day! It confounds that childcare centres persist in having their facilities covered in this stuff. Wouldn’t it be far better for children and staff to have natural, irrigated turf, which has been scientifically proven to be THE coolest surface in the urban environment, to cool their facilities? Who in their right mind thinks that a plastic product, that emits toxins and pollutants, and heats up to incredible temperatures during heat waves, is a good thing for our children? It’s bad enough that we are experiencing these incredibly high and consistent temperatures, without having to worry about children suffering burns to their feet whilst in care. It’s horrible to even have to share a post like this. Outdoor PLASTIC carpet should be banned along with other plastic products.

Kids really do love their lawns! Look at the genuine pleasure on this little blokes face. It’s a bit cooler day, he got his pillow out and decided to lay out in the sun for a while to get a good dose of vitamin D. This is what happens when mum and dad do the rightie! Applying the best quality wetting agent and soil moisture retainer we know of regularly, (Aquaforce and Biagra), a good serve of carbon and humates and regular fertiliser to keep their lawn healthy. They mow regularly and at the right height, and the bonus is lots of quality family time spent in the backyard!
