An underrated asset of many Perth properties is a well chosen green lawn.
Used for entertaining and a favourite for kids to play on, a good lawn is also a nice cooling surface that helps reduce the heat around your home on those hot summer days.
But keeping your lawn green requires some forethought and a little bit of ongoing maintenance. Plus you don’t want to be wasting water.

Here are some tips to help keep your lawn green and looking great:
- Choose the right type of lawn variety for your property based on your location, availability of water, uses and the type of lawn appearance you are wanting.
- If watering of your lawn will be restricted to 2 or less watering times a week, then the Kikuyu, Zoysia and Paspalum vaginatum varieties will be suitable.
- When putting down new lawns, add a moisture retaining compost to help reduce the need for frequent watering.
- Fertilising your lawn is required to help keep it looking green and lush and should be scheduled for spring and autumn.
