Poor Man’s Kikuyu Lawn Renovation

Kikuyu Lawn Renovation, better late than never!

Here in Sydney NSW we are in the middle of Summer – January 2021.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are gradually removing rye grass from front lawn (it’s the darker green grass) and are doing the following:
1. Insect Control Spray black beetle & curl grub with bifenthrin & imidacloprid, water in with rain – we have had bad curl grub damage in past
2. Use poor man’s scarifying method by scalping kikuyu grass (with mower) to dirt
3. Fertilise heavily and water in if no rain

With all this La Nina rain the grass will recover beautifully in the next few weeks.

Happy New Year y’all!!
