    Ongoing Turf Maintenance

    The recommendations are for established lawns only, to ensure good health and the best possible colour year round. These recommendations are averages and should be used as a guide. Situations vary according to soil conditions, location, water pressure etc. The visual appearance of your lawn will become your best guide.


    Mower - Grass

    No more than 30-40% of the leaf should be removed in any one mow. Keep mower blades sharp and do not cut wet grass. Mowing height is an important factor in promoting healthy lawn. The mowing height is best kept at 20-30mm throughout the year. Closer mowing will produce a putting green appearance. An even ground is important for good colour retention. Scarifying only if necessary, best carried out between October and December.

    In summer mow every 7-10 days. During autumn and winter every 2-5 weeks, only if necessary.

    Best results are achieved with a cylinder mower.


    Watering Turf and Grass

    Save time and money on your water bill by installing a controlled sprinkler system.

    Santa Anna can tolerate drought conditions once established. Watering to maintain a healthy green appearance:

    Summer – over 35 degrees 3 times a fortnight 1hr per shift other times 1 hr per week
    Autumn and spring – cut back depending on the weather for more information call hicks turf
    Winter – only if necessary

    3 times per week for 20 minutes 2 times per week for 15 minutes


    Turf Fertiliser and Grass Fertiliser

    Apply four applications of fertilizer a year from our specialty range. Reduced growth, paleness of colour and weeds may indicate your lawn is lacking nutrition. Ask for a copy of our Santa Anna fertilising program.


    Weeds Control
    Weed Control

    For best results with weedicides, promote growth by fertilising 14 days ahead and do not mow for 48 hours prior to spraying. Broadleaf sprays control Clover, Bindii and Broadleaf weeds including Paterson’s Curse (Salvation Jane) and should be applied before flowering at the end of July as a preventative.

    To control Black Beetle, Mole Cricket and grass-eating caterpillars in lawns, use a recognised Lawn Grub Killer each spring, as a preventative.

    Wintergrass Control – apply annually between April and August.
