Summer Garden Care

Did you know?

Lawn Care:

With the summer dry and heat still with us most lawns will be experiencing some degree of discomfort. If you have been maintaining good deep watering practices but your lawn is still yellowing off then you may have an insect infestation. Dig into the lawn to a depth of roughly 3 inches (75mm) to see if there are any beetles or larvae present. Insects can be safely treated using Pyrifos G granular insecticide which comes in a convenient shaker pack. Pyrifos G simply needs to be well watered in after application and then children and pets are safe to go back on the lawn the next day.

Summer is also a good time to slightly raise your mowing heights. This reduces the stress on the plant and helps maintain good plant health. Continue to fertilise and apply AquaTurf Max as required.

Ask for the NEW Prolawn Lawn Guide at any of our yards for more information.
