Lawn maintenance schedule

Between now and Xmas there will be quite a lot of maintenance work done on our lawns.

Thu 31st Oct - Insect spray for Couch mites.

Thu 7th Nov - Spray the lawns with herbicide to eradicate everything (ie Blue Couch, carpet grass, paspalum, kikuyu and any other unwanted weeds) retaining only the genuine Couch grass which is the pale green grass. The outcome of this will be a uniform, consistent surface ideal for croquet as real Couch lies flat and is much faster than the Blue Couch which is not really a couch at all. One downside of this activity is that the lawns will have a blotchy appearance until the Couch totally replaces the stuff that has been removed. I am told that this will take about 4-6 weeks.

Thu 21st Nov - repeat the herbicide spray done on the 7th.

Thu 5th Dec - repeat the herbicide spray done on the 7th.

Mon 9th Dec to Fri 13th Dec - Major renovation to lawns. Scarrify, core, topdress and fertilize. The lawns will be pretty much unplayable for about 7-10 days.

The sprayings will be done early in the morning and will be usable that day. Whenever the lawns are sprayed we will have to display warning signs to players to remember to wash their hands after play.
