Ever wondered how the professional playing fields are so lush and green through winter? Nigel has a few tricks to compliment your existing lawn during the cool months.

  • When warm season grasses, such as buffalo, slow-down in winter they often lose colour, particularly in the cooler regions. Autumn feeding will help, but the other trick is to over sow with cool season grass seeds that stay green through the milder months.
  • Scotts Lawn Builder Lawn Thickener is designed to over-sow, to thicken and green your lawn. It’s a two-in-one blend of starter fertilizer and professional seed mix. It’s ideal for all lawn varieties, including buffalo.
  • The time-release technology in this slow release starter fertilizer ensures nutrients are released slowly and continuously for up to 3 months ‐ covering the winter period.
  • The extra grass growth through winter will help suppress the weed growth too.
