Lawn Planting

To ensure a smooth, uniform lawn, proper groundwork is key. We start by deeply turning over the soil, enhancing root penetration and leveling the surface. We recommend enriching the soil with compost for optimal results, tailored to soil conditions and budget.

Next, we carefully rake and shape the land for efficient rainwater drainage before laying the instant lawn closely together. Following installation, we apply a slow-release fertilizer, thoroughly water the area, and gently roll the surface to ensure good soil contact.

It’s important to keep the lawn moist (but not overly wet) for the first four weeks and avoid mowing during the initial 2-3 weeks to allow strong growth.

We specialize in Kikuyu and LM lawns, with LM being an indigenous, drought-resistant variety that excels in shaded areas, making it ideal for our climate and water conservation efforts.

Lawn Maintenance

Our service includes at least four annual visits to your property, during which we’ll enhance your lawn’s health and appearance with a blend of wetting agents, pH balancers, insecticides, and lawn boosters. Additionally, we will apply granular fertilizer to your lawn, eliminate weeds from both your lawn and paving, and conduct a complimentary ant treatment around your home’s foundation. Each session is followed by a no-cost follow-up visit (excluding winter months) to re-treat weeds and ants as necessary until they are fully eradicated.

We provide entirely free, no-obligation quotes.

Please bear in mind:

Given that lawns and weeds are living organisms, achieving a lush, weed-free lawn through our treatments is a gradual process, not an instantaneous solution. Patience and consistent care are key to restoring your lawn’s vibrant, healthy state.

Fungus Lawn Disease

The approach to this treatment varies based on the specific lawn ailment, beginning at the initial appearance of symptoms and potentially extending to as many as six applications annually.

The common lawn afflictions addressed include:

  • Brown Patch: Manifested as expansive, circular areas of discolored, brownish turf.

  • Dollar Spot: Identified by diminutive, circular dead grass patches, each roughly the size of an R5 coin.

  • Fairy Ring: Characterized by arcs or complete rings of vibrantly green grass, occasionally accompanied by mushrooms along the edges.

  • Pythium Blight: Noticeable through small, sudden outbreaks of withered grass during periods of warm, moist weather.
