Q.Dichondra Lawn Substitute
I live in Perth, western Australia and have a very sandy soil. Eighteen months ago, when I planted my Dichondra lawn substitue, I mixed a blend of cow and sheep manure into the soil to give the grass a good start. It worked well, but now my grass looks like it could do with a good feed. Could you please let me know what fertilizer I should apply to it?

Generally, most turf grasses are fed at the rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet of turf. Feed dichondra one-half this strength. If choosing manure, opt for composted manure.
