Watering Schedule to establish a new lawn:

Late Spring/Summer (hot weather periods)

 

0-10 days

Use 10minutes (5mm) three times a day in the morning, noon and evening. One extra watering is required if periods exceed temperatures of 35 degrees Celsius.

 

11-20 days

Use 10minutes (5mm) twice a day morning and noon.

 

21-60 days

Use 20minutes (10mm) once per day in the mornings

 

Over 60 days

Use 40 minutes (20mm) every second morning.

In exceptionally hot weather periods uses 20 minutes (10mm) once per day in the morning.

21-60 days

Remember if it rains turn the reticulation system off. Too much water and not enough sun can rot your grass.

If the lawn shows signs of stress (a loss of bright colour and slight wilting) then you need to give it a good deep drink of 10mm of water per day as soon as possible until it recovers.

 

Once your lawn is established – in excess of 60 days – revert to the following approximate watering levels:
 

Jan/Feb

20mm every second day

March

20mm every third day

April

20mm every fourth day

May

20mm every fifth day

Jun/July

No watering

August

20mm once a fortnight

September   

20mm every fifth day

October

20mm every fourth day

November

20mm every third day

December

20mm every second day

 

Always ensure you water early in the morning usually between 5am and 8am. If windy when watering then alternate watering is recommended, one day in the morning and one day in the evening to avoid dry spots.

NOTE: For buffalo lawn in shady areas cut down watering to once every second day for 10 minutes after the first 10 days or else it will rot. Rotting is the result of too much water and not enough sun.
