Evergreen Gold

Evergreen Gold is one of the most beautiful lawn mixtures and grows well in full sun and semi-shade conditions. It thrives in a variety of growing conditions and will remain green throughout the year.

A lawn of Evergreen Gold can tolerate high traffic and is great for areas frequently used by children and pets. However, dog urine can sometimes cause the blades to scorch, especially in very hot weather, resulting in dead, brown patches.

Transplanting Evergreen Gold instant lawn

Allow the lawn to establish itself well before mowing and never cut full sun grass shorter than 4 cm or 5 cm for that growing in the shade. During summer your lawn will need mowing about once a week and in winter once every three weeks should be enough.

Avoid smothering your Evergreen Gold lawn with compost or lawn dressing. Rather spike the lawn occasionally, especially in high traffic areas where soil compaction can occur.

The compaction prevents water, fertiliser and air penetration, resulting in poor growth. Use a garden fork, pushing it about 20 cm deep into the soil and wiggling it to lift loosen the soil slightly.

For the best-looking lawn all year round, Evergreen Gold lawns need regular feeding through a slow-release formulation, four times a year.

Evergreen Gold lawns do not need more water than other lawns, but they can’t withstand drought, so an irrigation system would be a good investment.

Lawn Care

Soil Preparation

Cool Season: Soil Preparation

Before planting, soil should be moistened to a depth of 15cm. Dig the area over thoroughly, to a depth of at least 15cm. The area must be leveled carefully as it is very difficult to correct levels after the grass has been laid. Apply 4:3:4 (36) (or a similar fertilizer) at a rate of 5kg / 100m² and rake into the top 2cm of the soil.

Roll the area lightly to make sure that all bumps and hollows are exposed and correct before laying the sod. When laying, make sure that the sods are carefully butted together. After laying, roll the area lightly to ensure good soil/sod contact and water well.

Watering Maintenance for Establishment Phase

Cool Season: Watering Maintenance for Establishment Phase

When establishing Cool Season Grasses, the following watering programme is recommended. Warm months, 4 times a day (6am, 9am, 11am, 2pm). In cool months, 2 times a day, early morning and midday. NB: Do not water later than 2pm so that the grass can dry off before night falls. Although adequate watering is very important, over watering and “puddling” must be avoided. Different types of soil must be taken into consideration.

Handling of Instant Lawn

Although the sods are well knitted together, careful handling is desirable. Do not leave the sod in the sun for long periods. For best results, Cool Season Grasses should be laid within 12 hours of delivery

.

Fertilizer Maintenance

Since Cool Season grass grows most actively in Spring & Autumn, this is when it needs to be fertilized most. It is beneficial to scarify warm season lawns first in spring when an application of 5:1:5 can be introduced onto the roots at 50g / m². Lawns do best when fertilized "little and often”. Grass growing in sandy soil needs to be fertilize more often than that growing in a clay soil, since the nutrients leach out far more readily in the first instance.

  • Spring: 5:1:5 applied @ 50g/m² (beginning of Aug & end Sept)
  • Summer: 5:1:5 or LAN controlled release 50g/m² (Mid Nov, end Dec & end Jan)
  • Autumn: 5:1:5 controlled release 50g/m² (beginning of March & end of April)
  • Winter: No fertilizer is necessary while the grass is dormant

When to Establish

  • Instant Lawn: All year round.
  • Plugs: All year round.

When to Mow

As soon as the sod is firmly secured to the ground, mowing can begin by removing no more than 1/2 of the leaf length. For further information on mowing heights, please refer to the maintenance section.
