After a very hot summer, a lot of lawns can look terrible, so now is the perfect time to do something about it!
To revive your existing lawn, cut lawn down close to catch the clippings and if you can, disturb the soil by raking through the area with a steel rake. Mix your choice of lawn seed with Munns Professional Buffalo & All Lawns Starter Fertiliser in a bucket. Broadcast this mix evenly over the whole lawn. Lightly top dress with approx 1cm of sandy loam. This enables seed soil contact for better germination. Water the area with a fine mist spray so you don't wash the seeds into clumps. Keep the top 1cm moist at all times during germination.
Thinking of planting a new lawn? Autumn is the best time of the year to sow cool season grasses (upright) such as Tall fescue, Rye and Kentucky Bluegrass. These seeds are contained in Munns Professional Sun and Shade and can be sown 12 months of the year.
Early March in most states of Australia is still ideal to sow Couch and Kikuyu varieties, just make sure your ground temperatures are around 23c (for at least three to four weeks). If the ground temperatures are below this then you could choose from the cool season varieties listed above.
