|There are just a few small bare patches to grow into before I consider the new lawn established, but with its sub surface drip irrigation and bed of well fed organic soil it has surprised and delighted me.|
Its only 3 weeks since the turf was laid and maintenance began. The lawn is watered in the evening for an hour every 3rd day, except when the weather is very hot (over 35 deg C). In these conditions I ensure the whole garden is watered on that day, scheduled or not.
I am mowing the lawn regularly (3 times so far), and plan to top dress it with organic lawn food every 3 months during the growing season.
