Which turf is easiest to maintain?

All turf varieties require some level of maintenance in order to give you the best lawn possible. You may find either of our Buffalo varieties – Palmetto or Sapphire – easier to maintain. Once established, they are more tolerant to shade and drought, they have a great colour all year round, and a beautiful soft-leaf texture. They require less mowing, depending on the conditions, and less watering than other turf varieties.

How do I know which turf is best for me?

That depends on how you want it to look and feel, how much maintenance you can do, and what your budget is. Ask us for a free consultation and quote.

Will my lawn need to be fertilised?

Yes, just like we need food to stay healthy and strong, so does your lawn. We recommend using a complete lawn fertiliser in early April and early September and then a slow-release fertiliser in December/January.

Help! I neglected my turf. What do I do?

If you need a quick green up, use a fertiliser with a high nitrogen level to promote lush green growth.

How do I prepare my yard for turf?

You’ll need to clear the site and prepare the soil. To know more see our Site Preparation information. And we can prepare your yard for you. Contact us for a free quote.

Will my lawn look great all year round?

Yes, if you maintain it. Keep in mind that lawns won’t look quite as lush and green in Winter as they do in Spring, but they can still look great!

Can I use cow manure to fertilise my lawn?

Sure, just don’t use it in Summer when the humidity is high or you’ll end up with a fungus.

To get a great lawn growing, that’s good for both you and the environment, contact Mardi Park Turf today.
