SECRET OF A LUSH LAWN SPRING CARE Feed lawn with quality fertiliser Lift mowing height by a click or two. Allowing lawn to grow a little longer will make it lush underfoot Water: Most Australian lawns can survive on rainfall alone, but for extended dry periods, a deep, occasional watering will help promote a more resilient root system Dress: Give a lift with top soil Reduce use of insecticides, weed killers and fungicides. Visit: victa.com.au AN important task for home gardeners with seasonal changes is lawn maintenance. The changeover from winter to spring will mean more pressure on lawn care. Experts in the field, Victa says correct mowing methods will go a long way towards having luscious lawns. Remembering never to cut wet or dewy grass, keeping lawn mower blades sharp and using a grass catcher during cooler months will help keep lawns in top shape later in the year. Mowers that can mulch are most beneficial for the lawn. OUTDOORS ALL HAIL SUPER GRASS TURF IS TERRIFIC FOR YOU AND PLANET A grass carpet keeps your surroundings healthy as well as cool and attractive. Janita Singh YOUR lawn is good not just for gatherings, barbecues and fam- ily gatherings -- it is also an environmental powerhouse. ''A healthy, well-maintained lawn is more than just a beauti- ful thing. It is in fact a master- piece of sustainability,'' says garden guru and horticultural- ist Adam Woodhams. ''A lush lawn is 10C or more cooler underfoot than bare soil and as it breathes, it works like a natural air-conditioner, clean- ing and cooling the air.'' A lawn also softens light and reduces glare and reflected sun- light and reduces reflected sound by as much as 20 per cent compared with hard surfaces. ''Your is also a brilliant trap for dust and nutrients,'' Mr Woodhams said. Cooling: It is estimated that eight healthy front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tonnes of air conditioning, which is suf- ficient for 16 average homes. Oxygen production: A healthy 15m x 15m lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four daily. Cleaning and filtering: Lawns help clean and filter water sup- plies. Pollutant absorption: Pol- lutants such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide are absorbed by turf grasses.
