PERFECT PATCH OF GREEN GRASS BACK IN FASHION Fiona Boxall JODY'S TIPS Choose the variety of grass for your lawn based on the type of use it will get and the amount of time you have to spend on maintenance. Anewlawnneedstobe kept damp for two weeks and allowed to grow to 6cm before it is first mown. Talk to a Turf Australia grower in your area for advice on the variety that is best for your situation and needs. If laying the turf yourself, prepare the site by clearing weeds and debris. Make sure the soil slopes away from the house and apply a light application of fertiliser and water. Making sure there are no air pockets, roll the grass starting from the longest straight line in your garden. Sprinkle soil into the joins before watering in. Details: turfaustralia.com.au. LAWN CARE THEY say the grass is al- ways greener on the other side of the fence, but accord- ing to TV personality, horti- culturist and landscape de- signer Jody Rigby, home is where the greenest grass should always be. Rigby says she is passion- ate about plants and greenscaping but in recent years the trend in garden design has been towards minimalist plantings of one or two species. To add insult to injury, the perfect patch of grassy goodness is under threat from pavers, gravel, flag- ging, tiles and decking. Far from being high main- tenance and greedy for water, Rigby says grass is a great green option in more ways than one. ''Once established, most lawns don't need watering more than once a week,'' she says. ''And green in the garden is cooling, both visually and in terms of temperature. ''It catches all that water that just runs off hard sur- faces and pavers and allows it to soak back into the water table.'' As a recent recruit to the ''I love grass club'', having just become the proud owner of a fetching stretch of newly laid turf, I agree with Rigby. The pleasure of looking across my own grassy knoll is a vast improvement on the patch of mud and weeds it replaced and makes the garden look like a garden should. And, as Rigby points out, you can get a bit creative, growing grass in squares or as emerald green pathways. 40% 50% 60% OFF! ROLLER SHUTTERS "Don t Be Fooled!"
