If you applied pre-turfing fertiliser during preparation prior to laying, your turf will have received all the fertiliser necessary to maintain healthy growth for at least two months after harvesting (depending on soil type ).

When applying chemical nutrient, great care should be taken and the manufactures recommendations must be followed to the letter. Over application of any chemical treatment can cause the plant to die. Simplicity is the key.

Grass plants need a nitrogen rich fertiliser during the spring/summer growing season and phosphorus to encourage root growth during late autumn and winter. Fertiliser should be applied every 8 to 10 weeks throughout the growing season.
