    Care Instructions


    Mow your Nara lawn every 7-14 days in the hot months (depending on how manicured you want your lawn to look); mow every 3-8 weeks in the cold months.

    Water thoroughly and regularly after Nara Native Turf has been laid to encourage a deep and vigorous root system (turf will be able to fossick for water and therefore be more able to withstand hot
    dry conditions).


    Once the root system has fully established, water thoroughly only when needed (when a slight wilting is visible), usually once every 7-10 days in summer (on sandy soils more often), with much less or no water in cooler months.

    If water restrictions occur and you can't water, don't panic. Nara will brown off slightly and when you can water it again, or it rains it will green up. Unlike Buffalo's, Nara is extremely drought tolerant and will survive.

    Remember that infrequent, deep watering promotes a healthy lawn.

    Over watering encourages excessive growth, disease and root rot.

    It is best to water in the early morning; night watering is not recommended.


    It's important to use a slow release fertiliser one month after laying (applying fertiliser before this time has shown not to make a difference to lawn establishment).

    Use a complete fertiliser in early April and early September.

    At other times of the year use a slow release fertiliser. If you need a quick green up, use a fertilizer high in nitrogen to promote a lush green lawn- e.g. Supergreen or organic based slow release fertilisers. In heat of summer avoid over fertilising or using manure based products.

    If you want a native low maintenance lawn, fertilise sparingly and mow very little. Twice per year in this case.

    If you want a more lush green lawn year round, fertilise more often
