Q & A

How do I get the best results?

Start at the low rate and work your way up until you find a rate that works for you. The addition of an iron product like Lawn Play Enhance can help increase colour of the lawn and reduce any colour damage that may occur due to hormone changes. A growth regulator is the type of product that makes good lawns great, so if your lawn is long and scrappy it is best to develop it into a more regular maintenance program before starting with a growth regulator.

How much water should I apply to water in?

Watering or rainfall is not recommended within a day of application..

Is this safe for all turf types?

It is safe for many turf types when used at label rates. Some discolouration may occur after the first application to many grasses in particular Buffalo Grass. Do not apply to Kentucky Bluegrass.

How long before I see results?

Results are generally pretty fast, with growth reduction evident within 3-4 days dependent on weather conditions.

Will I see any discolouration to my turf?

A hormonal change is made within the plant so you may see some slight yellowing (phytotoxicity). If this occurs simply give the lawn a feed and it will grow out or apply Lawn Play Enhance in the next application.

Can I mow before or after application?

Mowing before should be done at least 6 hours prior to application or 6 hours before mowing.
