Soil Condition



The soil condition will determine the success of your lawn. The healthier your soil, the healthier your grass

  • Regular watering, feeding and aeration will improve and ensure best soil conditions
  • It is advisable to loosen soil properly and levelling of the soil before sowing
  • Compost and organic fertiliser can be worked into the soil prior to sowing to enrich POOR soil
  • Loosen the soil well prior to sowing, which will help in establishing the grass roots successfully
  • Good drainage is the most important factor for optimal root development and growth



Please keep to the following sowing ratios to ensure the best coverage:

  • 1 bag up to 25m²
  • 1 bag to cover 15-20m² is recommended
  • ONLY use fine topsoil/lawn-dressing to cover the seed

Watering for a beautiful lawn


For a Beautiful Lawn

Water is the most determining and vital factor in creating a beautiful luscious lawn.

  • First 2-3 weeks – keep soil moist by watering more often with short periods (3-5 min at a time in Winter, 10-12min in Summer)
  • When the seed has germinated, reduce intervals and increase duration slightly in order to feed the roots
  • ‘Deep watering’ every now and then will assist the roots in penetrating the soil even deeper
  • In cases of poor drainage, rather water more often with shorter watering periods
  • Prevent the roots from burning during hot and dry periods by watering more frequently
  • Please consider current weather conditions & season, when watering, and adjust accordingly
  • Early morning watering is recommended, and late afternoon, if required



Make sure your lawn mower blades are sharp and the height is set to minimum 5cm / 50mm

  • Mow once grass reaches height of 6-8cm
  • Mowing height should never be shorter than 5cm
  • Never remove more than 1/3 of the blades at once! If your lawn has grown over the recommended length, remove the tips 1/3 at a time – repeat process every second day till correct height of 5cm is attained.
  • Watering will help restore the blades after mowing, and not before
  • Mowing more often stimulates growth, thickening and multiplication of blades, ensuring a carpet-like lawn

Feed your grass with organic fertilizers


Your Grass

As everything in life – Quic-Grow® also needss additional feeding, such as organic fertilizers with Phosphate

  • 1st application of fertiliser should be at around 4 - 6 weeks after sowing (do not skip this)
  • Fertilise before winter and before summer (2x a year)
  • Fertilising stimulates roots to grow stronger, blades to thicken, adding natural elements for optimal growth
  • WATER WELL after each application of fertiliser, for at least 3 days after application, to ensure absorption


Let your grass breathe

Aeration allows your grass roots to breath and ensures that the fertiliser, oxygen and water reach the roots

  • Shaded areas need to be aerated every 6 weeks (preferably before fertilising and deep watering sessions), to avoid compacting of soil
  • When the soil is compacted, aeration is essential to allow oxygen into the soil, improving the root system
  • When wanting to over-sow (for whatsoever reason), aerate (loosen the soil) before spreading the seed

Kill the weeds



Regularly maintain your grass and ensure that weeds are dealt with swiftly

  • Regular mowing and fertilizing reduces weed completion
  • Apply spot treatment timeously to avoid weed infestation
