Do you ever have a little lawn envy when you see your neighbours lush, deep green lawn or maybe a manicured lawn around a public building, or the perfect pitch at your local sporting club or stadium. Well if you do Colin is going to show the expert tips to a great looking lawn like this one at Optus Stadium in Perth, but without all the hard work.
Weak, pale or off colour grass is fairly common after cooler winter weather and that means your lawn is in need of a pick me up. And Colin has just the solution. The first step is to regularly mow your lawn from spring to autumn. This will encourage the grass to grow sideways rather than upwards with a denser growth habit. Remember to never remove more than a third of the total leaf surface area at any one time and always change direction each time that you mow.
The professional secret to producing an outstanding lawn is to use the Scotts Lawn Builder range of slow release lawn fertilisers. Lawn Builder feeds your lawn continuously for three months, thickening your lawn without the surge growth meaning less mowing and stronger grass.
Scotts patented timed-release nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and iron is specially formulated to release a superior rate of nutrients just as your lawn needs them without any wastage or the possibility of run-off and leaching. Scotts Lawn Builder is safe to use around children and the family pets. Just apply it at least three times per year in early spring, early summer and autumn.
Scotts Lawn Builder + Wetting Agent includes sustainable slow release fertiliser with added professional grade wetting agent to help the water penetrate deep into the root zone and increase the uptake of nutrients without burning.
Lawn Builder can be quickly and easily spread with a Scotts Spreader. Just check out the spreader settings on the bag to easily apply the fertiliser at the correct rate to take the guesswork out of applying fertilisers. Scotts Lawn Builder Extreme Green, with extra iron, will give your lawn a deep green look in just 3-5 days time. So it’s ideal for sprucing up your lawn before your friends or relatives visit.
With twice the amount of Nitrogen compared to most of the other lawn brands Lawn Builder provides more value for your money. Plus the 4kg bag covers up to 285 square metres or an average lawn three times. Which equals three or more bags of traditional fertilisers.
The precise application of the EvenGreen Drop Spreader is ideal for lawns bordered by paving and garden beds avoiding any overthrow and controlling exactly where the fertiliser is applied. Plus you don’t even need to water it in. Lawn Builder is safe on your lawn until the next rain or watering.
Remember if you want the perfect pitch at your home or sporting club, use Scotts Lawn Builder to sustainably fertilise and green up your lawn, while making your neighbours green with envy.
