Lawns like Forsyth Barr Stadium

When walking past a residential property, the human eye usually does not land on the garden first, or even the property itself … the grass is what usually what catches the eye first. If the grass is damaged by the sun, looking brittle or growing unevenly, it does not leave a good impression for the remainder of the property. However, the appearance of the grass cannot always be blamed on the property owners, as it may not have been installed correctly, or they may not have been given full lawn maintenance advice by their lawn care professional. If this is sounding like your situation, and you’d like the have new grass that all of your neighbours will envy, consider the following grass seeding applications for your property:

Spray-on grass, also known as hydro-seeding, is where seeds are sprayed with a jet sprayer directly onto the soil. This is a much more effective method than scattering seeds by hand, as it is distributed evenly over the soil. Also, because the soil is sprayed directly to the soil, it creates a ‘sown-in-lawn’, unlike other methods which could mean that the seeds do not take to the lawn.

The Rolls Royce of grass seeding applications, is instant roll on grass – also known as readylawn. Although this is a more expensive option than other types of grass seeding applications, readylawn offers instant results, which is ideal if you are in a hurry to have new grass in your property.

What our many satisfied customers are saying

“We have used Acer Landscaping on many occasions to enhance the garden features around our rural home near Wanaka. Jim has always done a great job – with a wide range of skills from major rock wall construction to completely new garden developments – and everything in between!”
Conway Powell, Wanaka Flowers
Jim and the team at Acer helped us fulfil our vision of the site while keeping within our budget, we now have a fantastic landscape that gets better each year as it ages.
Garett & Sarah Shore, Hidden Hills
We were pleasantly surprised to see the job was completed as per Jim’s original plan. In fact, it was finished much earlier than he initially indicated, and right on the quotes. He kept us informed all the time and gave us plenty of time and a few options when we had to make decisions, which made our decision-making process very easy. Through this project, I found him very punctual and reliable; he turned up when he said he was going to and did what he said he was going to do. Now we don’t have to wonder when a landscaper is coming next if he is to, as we’re sure that Jim will be here as he tells us when. We would like to thank Jim for the very pleasant experience.on this project and certainly recommend Acer to anyone who wants a project done properly and pleasantly. No more “She’ll be right” talk with Jim. Thank you, Jim.
Yumi and Hisashi Sasaki, Penrith Park
