It contains the right balance of nitrogen, potassium phosphorus and all the trace elements that your lawn will require. Now this special blend will improve the growth and colour of your lawn be it Sir Walter or any other type. It’s economical to only 25grams per square metre of lawn.

Controlling lawn weeds
Spraying for weeds in Buffalo lawns can be tricky but not with Sir Walter Weed Control, it is especially designed weed control spray for your Sir Water lawn and it will get rid of Bindii, oxalis, clover and all sorts of other uninvited broadleaf weed nasties. It contains Bromoxynil so it is safe to use on Buffalo lawns and this value for money size will treat over 400 square metres.
Always follow the instructions
Always follow the label’s instructions and make sure you adhere to the applications rates. A good way to do this is firstly measure out 50 square metres of area, fill up your sprayer with just water and spray the 50 square metre area. Then measure how much water your sprayer used to cover the area and mix 30ml of weed control product with this amount of water and you are ready to go.
A couple of things to remember, don’t mow for 2 days after application and don’t be concerned if your lawn takes on a slight brown appearance in summer, that is perfectly normal and of course like with all garden products always read the instructions.
Lawn Lovers Lawn Rescue
Now one of the things that can happen to many lawns is the root zone dries out the lawn gets hungry and really starts to struggle. And for us the lawn owner we either think it’s all too hard and simply give up or go and spend a heap of money on the wrong products.
A few years ago Sir Walter launched a starter fertiliser called Sir Launcher. Sir Launcher is full of the best fertilisers and water storage crystals. The only thing is it’s designed to go on before you install your new lawn, so it doesn’t really work for existing lawn. But that problem has been solved thanks to the Lawn Lovers Range.
Lawn Rescue is an easy-to-use, clip on hose pack that contains no nasty chemicals and what Sir Launcher does to new lawns, Lawn Rescue will do to existing lawns.
Lawn Rescue is an effective starter fertiliser designed for the development of root systems and early turf growth, specifically developed to stimulate support and protect new root growth in turf while optimising water availability to the plant. It contains all the vital nutrients like nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous. It also contains organic seaweed kelp and polycrylamide water storage technology to keep the water in the root zone where the plant most needs it.
The Importance of Soil pH for Your Lawn
Sometimes you may find your lawn is not performing very well or not responding to fertiliser and this could be to do with the soils pH.
Now pH is a measure of acidity and alkalinity and Sir Walter lawns like to be in the 6 to 7.5 range for optimum performance. A pH in the right range of 6 to 7.5 is a bit like a plant with its mouth wide open, no food will go to waste here and it will all be eaten by the plant.
Adjusting the pH is easier on loamy and sandy soils than on heavy clays. If your soil is a sandy loam and you need to raise the soil pH by one unit add the equivalent of 150g of liming material per square metre. An adult handful is about 100g.
Heavy clay soils will require at least 250g to raise the pH by one unit. A super fine grade of lime works quickest and generally costs around $8 a bag.
For an established lawn, which may be lacking magnesium, mix 50/50 lime and dolomite as the liming material to get the right balance of calcium and magnesium. Dolomite is only available in one grade and costs around $8 a bag.
After applying lime or dolomite make sure you water them well so that it moves into the soil. Testing the soil’s pH may seem like some mad scientific operation but it couldn’t be simpler with one of the soil pH test kits. All you have to do is follow the instructions and it even tells you how to make the changes.
