Lawn Care

Course Outline

Lawns play an essential role in our gardens and in the community. Although we are familiar with their asthetic value, lawns have many important practical applications including controlling soil erosion, providing a cooling effect, improving air quality and even creating a benifical ecosystem. Did you know that on a summers day lawns can be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than concrete or paving.

In this online course you will be taught essential techniques for lawn care. This course is relevant to those who have an existing lawn or want to start from scratch.

You will learn how to:

  • Select the right lawn for your situation
  • Laying turf or sowing seed – the advantages and disadvantages
  • Rejuvinate an existing lawn
  • Soils and soil mixes
  • Soil improvement and fertiliser regime
  • Treat common weeds, pest and disease
  • Care and maintainance plan for your lawn

This course is designed to be interactive, with plenty of question and answer time.

Participants will need to bring the following items to the first session:

  • Please bring photos of your lawn.
  • Prepare some questions that you may have about your lawn, I provide consultation during these sessions. It is a great way for the entire group to learn.
