Prevention is better than care
- In Summer, with Perth’s sandy soils, while watering gardens & lawns the water can repel & run off or not soak into the soil evenly. Prevent this by using a wetting agent twice a year ( Nov & Feb). All good turf farmers agree wetting agent is highly & strongly recommend.
- Best time to water turf & gardens is in the cool early mornings only. More water soaks into the ground deeper (evening watering can cause fungus problems).
