How to look after your TifTuf Lawn
Soil and surface preparation is not only important for successful establishment but also to achieve a level, neat-looking finish. TifTuf Bermuda has a fine, dense growth and is generally kept shorter than other turf varieties, so lumps and bumps are more noticeable after the turf is down. It pays to spend a little extra time during preparation to level the surface perfectly with a screed to even out any high or low areas and to lightly roll the soil to firm up the surface slightly to reduce any air pockets. To have your TifTuf Bermuda sit flush with pathways or paving, we recommend that you finish your soil level 15-20mm below.
Once your new turf is installed, it is important to water it immediately and give it daily waterings (twice daily if needed) to keep the soil moist until the roots have bedded down into the soil.
Try to keep all traffic to a minimum until your lawn has established, this usually takes 3-4 weeks in the warmer months and even longer in the cooler months.
*Remember that turf is highly perishable and needs to be installed the day that it is delivered
TifTuf establishes itself extremely fast in the right conditions and will be ready for its first cut considerably sooner than other turf types. Your new lawn should be ready for the first mow once the turf can’t be lifted away from the soil anymore. The recommended mowing height for TifTuf Bermuda is 15-30mm.
*Remember to mow often enough to maintain the recommended mowing heights and never cut off more than 1/3 of the grass blade in one mowing.
Once TifTuf has settled in, you can gradually back the watering off, and after the turf has fully established, less frequent, deeper waterings are recommended to encourage deeper roots and a more drought-resistant lawn.
It’s always a good idea to water in the mornings or early evenings!
*Remember grass needs to breath and over-watering can cause fungal diseases, especially in the cooler months.
TifTuf Bermuda as the name suggests has been scientifically bred to be TUFF! It only requires only one-third of the amount of fertiliser than other turfs varieties to stay healthy.
We recommend using a slow-release granular fertiliser at a third of the suggested rate, 3 times a year in Spring, Summer & Autumn.
TifTuf requires about 4-6 hours of sun per day to thrive, so be sure to keep branches and leaves out of the way to allow for maximum sunlight, especially in the winter months.
Come Spring time, if your grass is looking a little thin or patchy, now would be the perfect time to aerate and fertilise your TifTuf lawn.
If your TifTuf lawn is feeling spongy underfoot it might need a dethatch. Dethatching is best done when the grass is actively growing and the weather is warm, November is usually an ideal time in Victoria to dethatch. A thick thatch layer can prevent nutrients, oxygen, and water from penetrating down into the root system and can cause fungal issues.
