Watering

Once your lawn is established maintain your watering schedule at two deep waterings per week to a depth of 10mm. To measure 10mm place an icecream container on your lawn and turn your sprinklers on. Time how long it takes to collect 10mm in the bottom of the container, this now should be your preset watering duration. Water is best applied early in the morning to allow surface water to drain.

Mowing

During the summer months your new Carabooda lawn should have it first mow 10-12 days following installation. This will trim off any high points from the first week of establishment and ensure the lawn has good contact with the subsoil. In Winter allow a minimum of 14 days before lightly mowing your new lawn the first time. At all times scalping your new lawn should be avoided.
