I use CK88 mostly for granular fert and have Bering using the Ben Sims pack from Plant Doctor Fortnightly, alternating iron and active mate8. I have used lawn pride products previously, but find Plant Doctor a bang for buck product for my lawn. I used 2spec Accelerate after my Reno in late September and am keen to use it again.

This is my first home, and my first time laying turf. The photo attached is my first-ever lawn renovation, which shows a 2-week turnaround time. My family and dog are very happy with the result.

What's your lawn care process?

I am very new to this and this lawn is just over 12 months old. I didn’t know anything at all before I started the process of laying new turf and have become passionate and obsessive about it over the last 12 months. I have learnt a lot and am continuing to enjoy learning and seeing the results. I am mowing a few times a week and loving it and have found it fascinating seeing what effects different products can make! The photos taken are just after a reno done a few weeks ago. I never thought shoveling sand all day could be so rewarding!

What's your lawn care process?

I normally mow Wednesdays and Sundays, I’ve got a few applications of PGR down so far and it’s slowed down and thickened up very nicely. The height of the lawn is sitting at 10mm. This turf was only laid in April and it was hard to get it established going into winter. So I’ve only been going at this for 6 months and it’s my first property and first lawn I’ve done.

Start of spring, I’ll also throw down acelepryn Gr to keep on top of grubs and I spray out with bow and arrow once a month to keep on top of the weeds. I’ll continue doing this through the growing season and back off what is not needed through the cooler seasons.
