Are lawn care products really worth it?

At LawnPride we get this question a lot...

“Are professional lawn care products really worth it as opposed to what you can get in a hardware?"

The answer to this is always a hard yes.

Professional grade Lawn care products are worth it to different people for different reasons. For some, they’re worth it for getting that lush green look. For others, they’re worth it to stop weeds or insects from tearing the lawn to shreds.

Whatever your lawn goals, there are professional lawn care products to match that will make any task easier and more effective than just flying solo.

Let’s jump into some examples, with five key benefits of professional lawn care you’ll definitely want in your toolbelt before tackling lawn maintenance.



1. Provides a healthy green appearance

One of the key benefits of professional lawn care products is that they help to achieve a healthy, lush green lawn appearance.

Iron is the champion ingredient in the pursuit of a thriving green lawn.

This is because iron (known as Fe) as you may see attached to some labels, is a vital factor in the creation of chlorophyll which happens to be the green cell within the plant.

Iron can assist your turf in resisting disease by hardening the plant as well as enhancing the plant’s natural green appearance. 

If you’re ready to take your lawn to the next-level, you can show off to your neighbours with a bottle of LawnPride Greenxtra

2. Maintaining hydration in dry climates

Soil wetting agents are your hail Mary when it comes to maintaining soil hydration during dry months.

A soil wetting agent such as LawnPride’s Hydramaxx (liquid) and Hydramaxx G (granules), are specifically designed to provide excellent water penetration, outstanding soil hydration retention and improved soil profile uniformity.

If you live in a dry climate or where watering is restricted, this product is your go-to for maintaining hydration.

Try a soil wetting agent for yourself and see the miraculous difference in your lawn’s health.



3. Keeps weeds, turf diseases and insects away

Most specialised lawn care products are designed to rid your lawn of common pests like weeds, turf diseases and insects.

Whether it’s that pesky Winter Grass that thrives in the cooler seasons, the management of Dollar Spot or an infestation of lawn grubs in summer, professional-grade lawn care products are your go-to!

LawnPride have a range of effective herbicides for the control of weeds, fungicides for those stubborn turf diseases and insecticides for you guessed it - keeping those pesky critters at bay!

4. Establishing a healthier overall lawn

A healthier overall lawn starts with a reliable fertiliser.

Quick-Release Fertiliser

A great quick-release fertiliser like LawnPride’s Groturf, provides 4-6 weeks of instant boost to repair from renovations or recover from lawn pressures. GroTurf promotes rapid growth, boosts the soil profile with the addition of various trace elements, and encourages healthy grassroots.

Slow-Release Fertilisers

On the other hand, slow-release fertilisers aid overall lawn health and colour with professional controlled release granules that will feed your turf for up to three months. LawnPride's Maintain and TurfMaxx fertilisers are suitable for use on turf grass throughout Australia.

With a combination of both upfront and controlled release technology, LawnPride fertilisers deliver balanced nutrition for an extended period without excessive flushes of growth. Get all round effective green up of turf grass and extended feeding with fewer applications throughout the year.

LawnPride Maintain and TurfMaxx are trusted professional lawn fertilisers that guarantee to deliver the results you expect regardless of your chosen turf variety! 


5. Improves property value

Not only do lawn care products have the ability to benefit your lawn in four ways, but they can also add tremendous value to your property.

It is a well-known fact in the real estate industry that well-maintained lawns can attract a significantly higher number of potential homebuyers.

So, if you are planning on putting your home on the market anytime soon, take our tips and get your lawn into shape!
