Teamwork makes everything better

Achieving a wonderful lawn requires a three-way partnership: Story Homes, GreenThumb and You.

What can you do to get the best from your lawn? Here's some tips and advice:

  • Keep off your new grass for the first four to six weeks, giving it time to settle and create a strong root system – even small feet and paws can make a dent
  • We recommend regular mowing from late March until early October to maintain the grass at 25 - 50mm high. Adjust your mower’s height to avoid scalping the grass
  • Aeration is highly recommended – talk to us about this service. It improves drainage and aerates the surface topsoil to encourage root development and rhizome growth, thus helping to achieve a healthy sward
  • Protect your lawn from traffic in very wet weather, and when the ground is frozen or covered in snow
  • Remove objects from the grass after use
  • Newly laid turf should be watered daily. It’s best to do this during the coolest part of the day. Water the lawn thoroughly in dry periods. As a guide, you should water the lawn if there has been no rain for 5 days. During periods of warmer weather, water it more frequently. If lawns turn brown and dry during summer, they usually recover when the rain returns. Do not rely on natural rainfall to water the entire area of the lawn as areas sheltered from the prevailing wind could remain dry after rainfall
  • Lawns benefit from regular feeding. We have a number of programmes that provide your lawn with the best nutrients, along with targeted herbicide sprays to control weeds. We can also treat the lawn for pests and diseases as required. Contact your local branch to find out more
