John Talks about Woolgro
Unscoured dag wool typically contains the important type of natural nutrients in the correct balance to feed grass as it grows. The natural nutrients slowly release into the soil resulting in thick healthy greener grass and strong deep roots.
The recycled jute fibre holds up to five times its own weight as water and this dramatically improves seed germination and reduces the amount of irrigation required.
The seed is starting out in a warm environment, insulated from the cold earth with the important nutrients and moisture content.
- Woolgro Lawn is supplied with the seed ingrained throughout the mat taking the guess work out of how much seed is needed.
Gone are the days of marking out equal areas, weighing seed and trying to spread it evenly. No more over seeding resulting in a choked lawn that will unevenly thin out after germination, or under seeding giving sparse, patchy grass growth with weeds filling in the gaps.
The seed stays where you want it – it can’t be washed away by rain, blown away by wind or eaten by birds.
- The Woolgro mat acts as a weed suppressant in a similar way to a conventional weed mat. Once the lawn is established weeds struggle to grow in a thick lush healthy lawn.
During installation, the Woolgro mat is covered by a thin layer of sand/soil mix and that’s the last you see of the mat – as the roots grow the mat is locked to the ground.
- Woolgro Lawn is made from 100% natural fibre so as the grass grows the mat biodegrades, slowly feeding the lawn with important nutrients. After approximately 9-12 months (depending on site conditions) the natural mat will be totally absorbed into the soil.
Woolgro Lawn is a New Zealand made, natural product – natural and sustainable has to be the way of the future and it’s something that’s important to us.
A Woolgro Lawn is the eco-friendly answer to the best, greenest lawn in the street. It’s a complete package with lawn seed, weed suppressant and fertiliser all in one – just add water.
Woolgro Lawn can be laid and successfully grown any time during the year in most areas as the wool insulates the germinating seed from the cold earth in winter months.
- We offer a full installation service through our licensed installers ensuring a great lawn every time.
Once the ground has been prepared (either by you or us) our installers roll out the Woolgro lawn mat, pin it down where necessary and cover with a thin layer of soil/sand mix.
Then all that is needed is a quick water twice a day for a couple of weeks until the grass is well established. First growth usually appears after 5-8 days depending on conditions.
When the grass is approximately 8cm tall, cut it back to 5cm using a mower with blades set to the highest level. Gradually lower the level over the next 6 weeks until the lawn is thick and well established.
