Read the Guide on How to Establish Ki-Couchi Turf in your Perth Lawn

When establishing a new lawn, people often overlook the importance of a good quality soil. The right soil will give your lawn the best possible start and help to prevent nutrient deficiencies and water problems.

Lovegrove Turf strongly advises incorporating Bentonite Clay into sandy Perth soils. Bentonite is a natural clay product with no added chemicals, it provides long term benefits for water and fertiliser efficiency which saves you money and time. To have the best outcome Bentonite needs to be incorporated into your soil with organic matter like Humus.

Ki-Couchi lawn has a short establishment time. Where other lawns could take up to one year to fully establish, Ki-Couchi can take only three months. This means that for areas where some traffic cannot be avoided you will have a shorter waiting period before being able to fully make use of your lawn.

If you are purchasing Ki-Couchi for a high traffic area it is recommended to reduce the traffic for the first few weeks. In the warmer months Ki-Couchi should establish quickly, however it is still important to monitor wear and tear during this early period.

Lawn should not be mowed until rolls have produced adequate roots. This should happen between 2 and 4 weeks and can be confirmed by checking that the rolls have secured themselves to the soil.

Maintenance

All lawns produce thatch as this is a natural by-product of healthy growth. Thatch will prevent water and nutrients from getting to the roots where they are needed. This can be removed through verti-mowing and should be done at least once a year.
