Lawn Fertiliser is a good investment
Applying fertiliser to your lawn is a routine maintenance task that you should perform every three months if you wish to keep the turf grasses healthy. If your turf becomes under-nourished, it will quickly get Red Thread Disease, go thin and bare and lose it's density and exhibit bare areas where moss and weeds can get a foot hold.
Healthy desirable turf grasses comes out of winter quicker, will survive a drought well and always respond quickly to any available water after much needed rainfall.
We get numerous comments from lawn owners who state that their moss and lawn has gone black when no rain materialized following application and watering in the products was not an option. Some rain within 24 hours of applying a lawn treatment product is quite important and in the main professional quality lawn fertiliser nitrogen sources are slow release and fairly safe on the surface of the lawn should no rain fall within a reasonable amount of days following application. The nutrient will need some rain at some point so that it may reach to turf grass roots and be taken up into the plant to do it's work as expected. No rain or inadequate rain following the treatment of lawn care products will give unexpected results and also scorch the lawn after a time.
