Sir Launcher is a fantastic new water saving starter fertiliser that will save you time, money and water. Sir Launcher consists of some starter fertiliser, essential nutrients, and water crystals that act like water magnets.
The water crystals rehydrate themselves with each watering lasting several years before biodegrading harmlessly. It also helps lawns survive water restrictions by less frequent watering during establishment. It needs to be raked into the top 50-75mm of soil. You would be crazy not to use this product when laying a new lawn.
It only costs around 35cents a square metre to water restriction proof your lawn and give it the great healthy start it needs with Sir Launcher, which is money well spent!

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.
To keep your Sir Walter in peak condition you will need regular applications of fertiliser. Healthy deep rooted lawns are better equipped to deal with stress, maintain their winter colour and prevent the germination of weeds.
When laying you should always use a starter fertiliser such as Sir Launcher, then approximately 6-8 weeks after installation we recommend using Sir Walter Premium Lawn Food at 25grams per square metre. Then as an ongoing guide, fertilise your lawn with Sir Walter Lawn Food at the start of spring, middle of summer and autumn.When it is raining it is the perfect opportunity to get out your Sir Walter fertiliser, because you don’t have to water it in, you are saving water and your grass will love you for it! You can spread by hand or with a fertiliser spreader.
As a benchmark feed one small section of about 1 square metre with twice the amount that you apply to the rest of your lawn and water that in well too. If the rest of your lawn looses colour and this area retains its colour, it is telling you that it is time to feed again.So don’t forget regular applications of Sir Walter Premium Lawn Food will give you a nice healthy lawn all year round.
