Lawns and flooding rains in North Queensland

If you are in the areas of far North Queensland that have recently received a huge amount of rain, here’s how to ensure your lawn makes it through okay.

Firstly, don’t stress; most lawn varieties popular today can easily withstand a number of days completely submerged in water. Allow the rainwater to drain away naturally before undertaking any lawn care tasks.
