Environmental benefits

Maintenance

  • Cut to 2cm-5cm in sun, or 5cm-7cm in shade – lower cuts will resemble a Couch lawn, higher cuts will resemble a Fescue lawn with longer leaf blades
  • Mow every 2 weeks in warmer months, and every 3-8 weeks in colder months
  • Fertiliser is recommended twice a year, with an additional application if the lawn is subject to high levels of wear and tear

Nara™ Native Zoysia is highly drought tolerant once established – but, like all plants, needs water. Requirements will vary depending on environmental factors. Be aware of a drying climate and water your lawn accordingly.

Remember, infrequent deep watering of your lawn promotes a healthy lawn and a strong deep-rooted system. Watering time is best in the early morning.
