Regional Information New South Wales

If treated like this, Empire will stay evergreen in many NSW regions. In some colder regions like Armadale, Bathurst, or Queanbeyan or under specialised conditions, Empire may still lose colour in Winter.

Fertilise in Early April and again in mid-June with slow release fertiliser applications at a heavy rate. Empire needs less fertiliser than all other turf types, so all other fertilising other than Autumn and winter fertiliser is optional. Fertilise in Early September with a moderate rate of slow release fertiliser, or a heavy rate of organic type fertiliser if you desire a super dark green colour. Empire does not need fertiliser in summer; however it may be worth considering further optional applications under extreme circumstances. If your lawn receives very heavy where from dogs or kids, or you want a dark green lawn all summer and do not mind mowing more, you can optionally fertilise again in Mid-November, and at the end of February with moderate rates of slow release fertiliser. THE MOST IMPORTANT FERTILISER TIME IS AUTUMN AND WINTER. The benefit of fertilising just in autumn and Winter only is far less mowing. Empire is very happy with just these two applications every year.

Fertilised well in Autumn and winter and shortly mown, results in Empire having much better winter colour. Longer Empire tends to brown off more on the tips. So for more frost effected regions the best option is to mow short from around the 10th of March. Keep it like that till mid-September. Then you can let it grow a little longer. If you have shade, or prefer the lawn a little longer, the other option is to fertilise as advised, and if in the middle of Winter the tips brown off, simply mow very lightly removing the burnt tips In regions that get only a small number of light frosts, the tips will not brown. For example, in most parts of Sydney, or Newcastle, it will generally not tip burn. In places like Western Sydney or Maitland specialised mowing like this will be needed to keep it evergreen.

Note; Other factors can make any lawn brown off, but if this recipe is followed, an evergreen Lawn will usually result.
