As we are in the cooler months, our lawns in South Australia will slow in growth and can lose some colour. This is mainly due to the drop in soil temperatures and the reduced amount of direct sunlight.
Most of the common grasses here in Australia are warm-season grasses. This includes Buffalo, Couch, and Kikuyu. This means they thrive through the warmer months and in winter will reserve energy until warmer weather arrives.
In some spots around SA, we don’t just get cold, we get FROST!
Frosts cause damage to turf when the moisture inside the leaf blade freezes and expands. This causes the cell wall of the grass to rupture, damaging the turf. Frost can also cause significant discolouration to the leaf as the damaged cell walls slows down photosynthesis.
Once the weather starts to warm up again in spring, the lawns can repair and re-grow, returning to their lush green pre-winter condition.
