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. - Built in Wardrobes - Shower Screens - Vanity Mirrors - Glass Splashbacks 4647 2344 30 Bluett Drive, Smeaton Grange, NSW 2567 www.stylishwardrobes.com.au Fax: (02) 4647 2355 ABN: 93 120 738 383 Business Est. for more than 22 Yrs Unit 17, 28 Vore St, Silverwater Tel: 9648 0000 Mob: 0430 134 499 Fax: 9648 1766 firstname.lastname@example.org 2127314 23/8 • Polyurethane & Vacuum Form Doors • Caesar Stone Benchtop • Free Quote & Design • Builders & bulk purchase welcome OPEN 7 DAYS Kitchen Direct Australia ALL AREAS 9838 9090 FREE MEASURE & QUOTE Lifetime Warranty www.justforyouwardrobes.com.au DESIGNED TO SUIT YOUR BUDGET Timber Coloured panel Painted Mirrored Sliding p Hinged Built-inWardrobe SPECIALISTS JUST FOR YOU WARDROBES PTY.LTD Y Lic. 185684C 2174088K wk5 Deal Direct with the Builder Carports/Awnings Entertainment Areas Timber Decks Screened Enclosures Glass Enclosures Sunrooms WE WILL BEAT ANY WRITTEN QUOTE www.spshomeimprovements.com.au Office 4576 1616 | Fax 4576 1616 Mobile 0410 437 558 PO Box 213 Kurmond NSW 2757 Email email@example.com Builders Lic No. 213281c ABN 17880457822 2068111 14/8 Kitchens Bathrooms Doors Laundries Toilets from $19 5 full ceramic 4 panel solid timber maple Doors Crazy! $135 30% off Custom Made Kitchens SALE Vanities from $199 Solid timber maple French Doors Crazy! $169 AusLux Stainless Steel Sinks from $110 24 Bridge Street, RYDALMERE - off Victoria Rd Ph 9898 1200 www.auslux.com.au OPEN 7 DAYS Mon - Fri 9.00am-5.00pm Saturday 9.30am-2.00pm Sunday 9.30am-1.00pm Bathroom Accessories from $15 Taps from $45 Shower Screens from $375 Home Improvement 2247034i 12/4
