Spring is a brilliant time of the year to establish a lush new buffalo lawn. Lawns are coming out of semi dormancy and are beginning to grow again. This means that new turf can send down roots much faster than in winter.
At this time of year, the weather is still fairly mild but is warming up slowly. As your new lawn is also becoming more established, it will be better able to cope with the increasing heat as summer arrives, and should be fully established by the onset of Summer.
Planting a new lawn in Spring also means the newly laid turf will need far less regular watering during its establishment.
Actually laying turf itself is not the most difficult job in the world (although depending on the size of the area, it can be very punishing on the knees and back!), but as with any garden work, the key to best results is in the planning and preparation.
If you prepare your site in this way, you will be giving your turf the best chance to thrive and provide you with a lush, green lawn for years to come!
We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
At the moment, we have 20kg bags of the very popular Kashmiri pebbles in stock and they represent a fantastic way to get your smaller landscaping projects done quickly and with style.
We are halfway to November already and it's newsletter time again. We have specials on top dress soil to give your lawn some love, and hardwood mulch. We also have tips to grow veggies in pots, a yummy garlic butter recipe and we introduce our Trade Partner, Matt Lucas from Lucas Mob. Enjoy!
