Don’t Forget to order your great value Lift, Launch and Wet Lawn Starter Pack when you order your turf.
The pack is made up of your soil conditioner, starter fertiliser and wetting agents.
All 3 granulated products are applied directly to the soil prior to laying the turf. Liquids are for maintenance after laying your new turf.
1. Lifter (Soil Conditioner)
A pelleted organic chicken manure that is slow release to not burn the baby roots that will improve the nutrient content in your existing soil.
2. Sir Launcher
A starter fertiliser designed to promote strong roots, necessary during water restrictions, with the added bonus of Water Crystals. Water Crystals are small organic beads that swell up to many times their size when wet. These Water Crystals then release this stored water continuously over the next few hours, keeping your baby roots wet between watering times and ensuring they don’t dry out. Allowing your roots to dry out can set the establishment time back by weeks and is the most common reason for turf failing after planting.
3. Wetting Agent
A wetting agent is necessary in WA’s waxy soils. Wetting agents stop the soil becoming hydrophobic, which leads to the precious water you apply being wasted as it runs off your turf and down the road. A wetting agent should be applied once at planting and a couple more times over the spring summer period.
4. Knights Wetta
A commercial grade liquid wetting agent that can be applied every 8 weeks after planting to keep your soil from becoming hydrophobic – the biggest cause of dry patch in Perth.
5. Launcher +
A high phosphorus fertiliser designed to increase and strengthen baby roots. Apply every two weeks after planting to help your new lawn grow strong and become heat and drought tolerant.
