Lawn Envy - Give it to Your Neighbours!

Posted by Patrick Muscat on 23 Aug 2017

Most people find it hard to believe that their lawns and yards can stay beautiful all year round in our wonderful but harsh climate.

In the cooler months, warm season grass goes dormant and turns brown. In some cases, weeds start to set in. And together with the lack of colour as many plants stop flowering, a wintry backyard can look dull and uninviting.

In the hotter months, grasses can become sunburnt and dry, soils dry and grey, and plants hungry for nutrients and water.

But there are solutions to these climatic problems for your lawn and plants. Solutions that will keep your yard looking amazing all year round, no matter how hot, dry or cold it gets! And would you believe, it’s the same two products for every season?

Difference: Organic Natural Mineral VS Inorganic Fertiliser

Posted by Patrick Muscat on 22 Mar 2017

Last time on our blog we explored fertiliser: what it is, how it works, and why it’s important to use in farming and horticulture. Today we thought it was time to discuss the age-old question:

“To be (organic) or not to be (organic)…”

What is the difference between inorganic (“artificial” / “man-made” / “chemical” / “synthetic”) and organic (or “natural mineral”) fertilisers?

How Soon Should I Lay My New Turf?

Posted by Patrick Muscat on 16 Nov 2016

We’ve been talking about our most frequently asked questions from both trade and residential customers. When you work in an industry for – well, generations, you realise it’s sometimes the easiest questions to answer that crop up the most. Like this one:  

“How soon should I lay my grass once it’s delivered?”

Grass is a living plant and requires nourishment to survive. It takes nutrients through its root system planted in beautiful, thriving soil.  

Turf is harvested off our farm and delivered to your job with a thick depth of soil attached. This means your turf is still getting some form of nourishment while it's waiting installation. Of course, that won’t last forever and if the turf isn't laid soon enough, your grass will begin to dehydrate and eventually die. The warmer the weather, the quicker your grass will begin to perish; and nobody wants that!
