How to Apply Our Fertiliser
Learn how to apply Dusty Clay’s geographically-blended Smart Release fertiliser to produce the best results for your grass, crops and garden. Our Smart Release fertiliser, although uniquely developed for your soil, works like most other Smart Release fertilisers on the market.
An inexpensive hand-held or wheeled fertiliser spreader is all you need. You could always simply toss around a small amount of fertiliser using a bucket or measuring cup, going around your garden in a uniform fashion.

Why Fertilise My Grass?
Fertilising your grass results in less water usage and better-looking grass. If you’ve got a species of grass that doesn’t seem to grow well in Winter, using a Smart-Release fertiliser tailored to your soil not only improves turf quality, root growth and colour but it also builds cold resistance into your grass. They’re also great for some TLC after harsh conditions – adding a quick top coat of fertiliser after a party on your lawn ensures it stays in great shape after being trodden on all night.
Our fertiliser helps grasses choke out undesirable species, like weeds and clovers. Continuously spraying weeds will kill them, but it doesn’t prevent the problem from coming back, whereas flourishing grass will minimise the likelihood for a weed outbreak.
How Often Should I Fertilise?
The frequency of your fertilising will depend on your garden’s state of health. You’ll also need to factor in whether certain areas receive different shade and rainfall. Generally, we recommend applying a Smart-Release fertiliser twice in Summer, as well as a foliar fertiliser during the rainfall period (January – February). From there, look at applying another coating of foliar fertiliser or Smart Release fertiliser leading into Winter to make sure the health of your grass is in tip-top shape before there’s little sunshine.
