Herbicides

One of the biggest problems that you will face on your quest for 'the  perfect lawn' is controlling weed and foreign grasses from overtaking your masterpiece.  At Agrishop we have a wide selection of products that can effectively control these issues in your lawn.  We have selected two of the best herbicides which we believe will clear up most common weeds (clovers, bindii and many more) and foreign grasses without harming your existing turf.  

Insecticides

The silent assassins and destroyers of great lawn.  Insects love a nice healthy green lawn and usually you don't realise that they have moved in until it's too late.  Over the years we have tried and tested numerous products and have found recommendation for you below.

Fertiliser

We all need a helping hand of nutrients to grow,  your lawn is no different,  however it can be confusing with a market that is full of products that say they can help.  At Agrishop we have put our years of experience in growing and management to help find the best products to give your lawn/turf the ultimate boost.

Watering

At Agrishop we recommend best practices as set out by the Water Corporation for water conservation in Western Australia.  Please ensure that you check your sprinkler schedule and only hand-water,  if required on days that fall outside your set times.  For a list of your watering days,  please see the link to the Water Corporation here.
