Regular mowing is essential for your Instant Lawn in South Africa. Your new instant lawn should not be mowed for the first 2 weeks. Once established the lawn should be mowed every 1 - 2 weeks in the hotter months and less often in cooler months. Avoid Mowing lawn if the grass is dormant in the cooler months. The staple length of grass after mowing will depend on the variety selected and how well the lawn is established
Your grass should be fertilized a few times a year especially if the soil is of poor quality in your area. The best way to determine what fertilizer to use and the amount to apply is to ask your Instant Lawn Pros partner.
Hydroseeding strikes a delicate balance between being more effective than conventional seeding and more economical than planting sod. Although the term suggests a rather high-tech process, hydroseeding can be carried out in a DIY fashion or by a reputable lawn care business. Going with a professional will probably yield the best outcomes, and most people advise employing a firm for their tools and knowledge.
Simply described, hydroseeding is a method for growing grass and reducing soil erosion that involves uniformly distributing a specific grass "slurry" across bare ground. Grass seeds, mulch, water, fertiliser, and biostimulants make up this slurry.
This combination works great since the fertiliser promotes the development and the mulch anchors the seeds to the soil while shielding the seeds from the elements (such as wind or excessive sunlight), and eventually adds more nutrients to the area by decomposing over time.

Kikuyu grass is very simple to maintain. It is the ideal grass plant to replace a lawn or cover barren patches because of how quickly it grows and spreads.
For regions with high foot traffic, dry weather, and water restrictions, this kind of grass is the best option. This is the ground cover you want in your garden if you live somewhere where the summers are hot and the winters are mild.
Propagating Kikuyu grass is relatively simple. Even if it thrives all year long, planting in the spring will be advantageous.
There are many Bermuda grass verities used for Instant Lawns. Bermuda grass is a highly versatile grass variety that enjoys direct sunlight. Bermuda grass is salt tolerant, drought resistant and thrives on a wide variety of soils with a ph between 5.5 and 7.5. Bermuda grass tolerates high-traffic areas well and spreads very quickly. It is a very aggressive grower and will out-compete most weeds
Native to South Africa, LM grass is also known as Durban grass and Coat grass. It is mostly found in Mozambique and along the coast of the KZN province. Under ideal growing circumstances, it develops a lush, dark green lawn. In addition to flourishing in partial and full shade, LM grass also grows well in direct sunlight. Despite having a creeping growth pattern, this grass is not as invasive as Kikuyu.
LM grass can withstand heat and recover from drought and heat stress thanks to its propensity for creeping growth.
An irrigation system works well for LM grass. The grass will go dormant, turn brown, and eventually die if there is a prolonged drought. Therefore, until the root system is established it needs constant watering even though it is generally more drought-tolerant when it matures.
LM can be used to cover bare places, especially shaded areas.
In addition to being noticeably greener, these new Buffalo "soft leaf" lawns are self-repairing and less invasive to garden edging than Couch or Kikuyu grasses. All varieties of buffalo grass are adapted to and thrive in sandy, somewhat salty, or alkaline soils, and because of their dense growth characteristics, they generally then to outcompete weeds.
To maintain a healthy lawn, Soft Leaf Buffalo grass needs to be mowed at a higher height than other turf species, often between 25 and 50 millimetres.
In shaded locations, mowing heights should be adjusted to between 50mm and 70mm to ensure longer leaf blades that absorb more sunshine and help the lawn to stay healthy with less mowing.
Buffalo grass should be watered often until it is well-established, after which it should be watered less frequently to encourage a strong root system. Buffalo lawns with deep roots have a larger "soil-water bank" from which they may draw moisture, allowing your lawn to survive in dry, hot weather that quickly dry off the top soil layer.
