Summer is the height of the growing season for warm season grasses.
With the right lawn care practices your lawn should be looking sensational.
Less frequent, deeper soakings will train the root system to become more self-sufficient and robust, particularly with drought tolerant varieties. In many parts of Queensland that receive regular rainfall, such as the Eastern seaboard, you may not need to water much at all.
Trees can look great in a lawn but there are a few things to consider for a successful relationship between your lawn and the trees in your garden.
We see large trees growing in parks, commercial spaces and botanical gardens. They provide beauty and much-needed shade and shelter for birds and other visitors to your garden.

Mowing is an art form.
If you don’t believe us take a look at any football match showing the grounds of one of the big clubs. Notice those lovingly laid stripes at the start of the match. That takes practise.
As well as being an art form mowing is also a bit of a science. No don’t worry, we’re not talking about complex equations and testing. But you do need to think about how you go about it and adjusting for each different season.
Before we look at the ins and outs of mowing your lawn, let’s imagine getting down on our hands and knees and having a closer look to see what keeps it going.
After another hot summer, we welcome the relief of the cooler nights.
Your lawn will be breathing a sigh of relief too, as summer can be long and stressful, particularly with the extreme weather conditions experienced in parts of Queensland in the past few months.
After laying your new Oasis Lawn, your first mow is a special moment and should take place as soon as your new lawn needs it, generally 1-3 weeks after installation.
All you need to do is just take the tips off and, remember whenever you’re mowing, never take off more than a third of the leaf blade.
