Turf maintenance

Correct turf maintenance

Maintenance requirements vary between turf species and environmental situations. The correct maintenance plan will be the final step after correct site preparation and turf selection, in ensuring that your AusGAP certified turf survives and thrives for years to come.

A well maintained lawn is pleasing on the eye and both mentally and physically beneficial to those who use it.

AusGAP certified producers have a range of quality turf products that require varying amounts of maintenance depending on variety and climate.

Using the AusGAP turf selector will help you select the correct turf type for your job and the AusGAP staff and growers can assist in constructing a fitting maintenance schedule to help get the best out of your AusGAP certified grass.

Varying maintenance needs

The AusGAP Turf Selector will assist you in choosing the most suitable certified grass for your needs taking into account all of the variables along with local climate and grass availability.
