    INVALUABLE WATER INFORMATION FOR YOUR LAWNS IN PERTH

    Perth Turf Supplies has been growing lawns and turf for over two decades, so you can trust us when we say we are Perth’s experts when it comes to lawn care. 

    Water information and schedules to establish a new lawn:

    LATE SPRING AND SUMMER (HOT WEATHER PERIODS)

    0-10 days

    Use 5mm of water for 10 minutes 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 5mm of water for 10 minutes twice a day in the morning and at noon.

    21-60 days

    Use 10mm of water for 20 minutes once a day in the mornings.

    Over 60 days

    Use 20mm of water for 40 minutes every second morning.

    In exceptionally hot weather periods, use 10mm of water for 20 minutes every morning.

    EARLY SPRING AND AUTUMN - MILD WEATHER PERIODS

    0-10 days

    Use 5mm of water for 10 minutes twice a day in the morning and at noon.

    11-20 days

    Use 10 mm of water for 20 minutes once a day in the morning.

    21-60 days

    Use 20mm of water for 40 minutes every second morning.

    In exceptionally hot weather periods, use 10mm of water for 20 minutes every morning.

    WINTER (WET AND COOL WEATHER PERIODS)

    0-7 days

    Use 5mm of water for 10 minutes once every day in the morning.

    8-20 days

    Use 5mm of water for 10 minutes once every second day in the morning.

    21-60 days

    Use 5mm of water for 10 minutes once every third day in the morning.

    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 such as a loss of colour or slight wilting, then you need to give it a good deep drink of water. 10mm of water per day is required as soon as possible until it recovers.

    Established lawns

    Your lawn should be established in around 60 days. After this time, you need to revert to the following water information and approximate watering levels:

    January and February

    20mm of water every second day

    March

    20mm of water every third day

    April

    20mm of water every fourth day

    May

    20mm of water every fifth day

    June and July

    No watering required

    August

    20mm of water once a fortnight

    September

    20mm of water every fifth day

    October

    20mm of water every fourth day

    November

    20mm of water every third day

    December

    20mm of water every second day

    Always ensure you water early in the morning between 5:00am and 8:00am. If it’s windy when watering, alternate watering times to 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.
