I moved to Canberra last year, bought a house early this year and had turf laid in my backyard last month.
Most gardening websites have told me to water lawns daily until established, then slowly move towards a once weekly regime. But after having spoken to a couple of locals, they claim that many websites do not take into consideration the many possible climates its readers could come from.
So are there any specific gardening tips seasoned Canberrans can give me? I know that summers here very hot and the sun is up until past 8:30pm. Does that affect how often you water lawns?
Is it true that water restrictions here are pretty much death sentences for grass?
