Looking after Sir Walter DNA Certified

One of the benefits of Sir Walter DNA Certified is that it is an ‘easy care’ lawn, however, as with any living plant, it does require some looking after. A regular lawn care regime will be the easiest and best way to maintain a healthy and happy lawn for life.


Once established, Sir Walter DNA Certified can be trained in drought tolerance to require less regular watering and be hardy in our harsh summer climate. It’s common for people to water their lawn every day for 10 minutes for its whole life however this isn’t best practice. Once established, your lawn will benefit a lot more from long (e.g. 1 hour) deeper soaks less frequently (once a week). This will encourage strong root development and a healthy, happy lawn that can better withstand seasonal changes such as drought and frost. 


We recommend to fertilise your Sir Walter DNA Certified at least four times a year ideally in March, April, September and December or at the change of every season. September and April are particularly beneficial to give your lawn the strength to tolerate our cold winters and then to bounce back again in Spring. A high quality, slow release granular fertiliser such as Lawn Solutions Premium Fertiliser is highly recommended for a slower and more constant does of nutrients.

lawn mowing


The beauty of Sir Walter is that it doesn’t require as much mowing as other lawn varieties. During its peak growing season it may need mowing every 7-10 days at most. Regularly mowing your lawn will promote thick and even growth and promote your lawns overall health. Ensure that your mower blades are sharp and that you never mow more than 1/3 of the leaf off at one time.
