Congratulations to Matt from Narangba, the Brisbane’s Best Lawn competition winner! His stunning Tiftuf turf and meticulously designed gardens left the judges in awe. But the real showstopper? That perfectly placed street tree still takes our breath away every time we see it! It fits so seamlessly into the landscape, it’s like he cut a perfect hole in the grass and dropped it in!
Three years in the competition and still impressive, Matt continues to be a lawn master. This year, he takes home the top prize for having the best lawn in Brisbane!
How does Matt get his lawn looking so amazing?
Matt’s lawn care routine is nothing short of exceptional! His dedication to his lawn is evident in every blade of grass, and the results are simply stunning. Don’t let the lush green carpet fool you. This is a well-oiled machine that requires hard work and attention to detail. But the effort is worth it, and the proof is in the pictures.
“I mow and edge twice weekly, mowing first and edging last. I do a double-cut cylinder mow every time in at least 2 directions, followed by rotary scissors flat topping the edge, a stick edger, and then a blow. It gives the cleanest sharpest edge. As a tradesman, you have what you call your finishing tools, and edging should be done last, as you can’t miss anything. I lightly groom the lawn every 2-4 weeks as part of a maintenance schedule.
“I use all Lawn Pride products on my lawn. They work amazingly, and I’m yet to fault them! In Spring, I did a big renovation, the hardest I’ve ever gone through. I scalped the Tiftuf to absolute dirt, core aerated, and scarified. Then I used Centenary Landscaping Supplies’ Fairway Pro Maxx top dressing sand, which was next level! I followed that up with Lawn Pride Gro Turf. I also use Lawn Pride‘s range of foliar fertilisers on a monthly application. Not long ago, I put out my first application of PGR for the season. Every fertiliser application, rates of products put out, to scheduled grooming gets noted down in a book, so I can look back and stay on top of my program.”
Ok, wow! No effort is too great when you’re as passionate about your lawn as Matt. That rigorous lawn care routine may be challenging, but the results speak for themselves – a breathtaking lawn that leaves us in awe! Hard work meets determination, and the end result is nothing short of stunning. Bravo, Matt!
Hats off to our top 4 finalists! Greg from Ormeau, Josh from Bridgeman Downs, Rodney from Narangba, and of course, the winner Matt, have put in some serious elbow grease to get their lawns looking incredible. It’s no secret why they were chosen as the crème de la crème in Brisbane’s Best Lawn competition. Their lush lawns are the ultimate proof that hard work really does pay off.
