Follow these easy steps to get your lawn in tip-top condition in three days.

Lawn love

With the days warming up, it’s time to get your lawn ready for a summer of outdoor fun. This living green carpet is so much more than a backyard – it’s a place to come together with friends, a playground, a sanctuary in which to relax.

Going green

Thankfully, it no longer takes days of hard toil to coax your lawn into life. Start with Scotts Lawn Builder ‘Extreme Green’ slow-release lawn fertiliser. The nutrient-rich, no-burn formula will green your lawn in just three days, quickly transforming dry, lacklustre grass into a verdant oasis. Its controlled-release technology will continue to feed and green your lawn during the tougher summer months.

Water smart

Scotts Lawn Builder is uniquely formulated so that it can be applied without having to be watered straight away. Simply use a spreader to fertilise your lawn and, when it rains, your lawn will start to green up beautifully and naturally. If rain isn’t in the forecast, give your lawn a thorough watering to get the green going. (Check for any local water restrictions beforehand.)

Some products are not available at all Bunnings stores, but may be ordered.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
