A great looking lawn is a place everyone enjoys, but not everyone has the time or knowledge to achieve a showcase lawn. This is where liquid ‘lawn tonics’ can come in handy.
Liquid fertilisers or ‘lawn tonics’ can provide a quick response from your grass. The nutrients are almost immediately available to be absorbed through the roots or leaves, correcting nutrient deficiencies quickly or giving the plant a general boost through the growing season. You can also use a liquid fertiliser straight after mowing to reduce foliar stress to the cut leaf.
The nitrogen in liquid fertiliser is usually derived from urea, which can be absorbed through the leaves of your lawn. So unlike granular fertilisers, which require a soil-borne reaction at temperature, the liquid fertiliser will give your lawn an instant boost, even when the weather is still quite cool.
If your lawn is a little drought weary, lacking colour or suffering from the harsh climate, then it’s Lawn Rescue… to the rescue!
Lawn Rescue is a premium dual action spray-on liquid fertiliser product designed to restore lawns that have lost colour and appearance due to drought, heat or lack of water and nutrients.
Lawn Rescue contains a blend of liquid fertilisers, seaweed extracts and wetting agents making it the complete treatment to revive your lawn. It is ideal for use during establishment, post establishment and for a boost at any time during the year.
When used as a starter fertiliser, it effectively promotes the development of root systems and early turf growth. In established lawns it stimulates, supports and protects root growth and is best used to compliment your granular fertilising regime.
The seaweed extracts work to condition the soil and promote healthy root growth. Then the wetting agents improve your soil’s ability to absorb precious moisture, thus optimising water availability to your lawn.
While liquid fertilisers like Lawn Rescue are great for a quick boost of nutrient or during times of stress, it’s important to consider longer-term health as well. This is why we recommend that you use a granular, slow-release fertiliser like Lawn Solutions Fertiliser about 3-4 times a year, as this will help to maintain the overall health of your lawn for longer periods.
If you are looking for an instant improvement in colour, then another great liquid option is ColourGuard Plus.
ColourGuard Plus is a natural pigment, but also a liquid fertiliser. This pigment is absorbed into the leaf where it provides an instant boost in natural colour. If your lawn is growing rapidly, the pigment will be removed when you mow the leaf off next, so ColourGuard Plus is best used when your lawn is growing slowly. This occurs during the hottest periods of summer and again during winter in most areas. For more information on ColourGuard Plus click here.
With a combination of both liquid lawn tonics and granular fertiliser applications throughout the year, your lawn will have everything it needs for healthy leaf growth and root development.
