AUTUMN lawn care

WHEN SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS BEGIN ITS AUTUMN LAWN TREATMENT?

Treatment should begin around September or August. A good indicator is when the leaves on trees start to turn yellow and red. It’s important to treat lawns during this time as the days are long and there is more sun exposure. These months are also much drier and you may need to top up on water.

 

Why should the business treat its lawn in autumn?

Autumn is well known for being a month full of yellows, oranges and reds. Lawns are also included within this and it’s important to treat your lawn before the harsh winter months. One last professional feed is needed for the lawn to survive the winter.

 

What should the business use to treat its lawn during autumn?

As with other months you would be looking to use a nitrogen rich granular fertilizer on the lawn. This, alongside a targeted herbicide spray, can help to reduce the risk of weeds and moss. It’s essential to use a professional feed, as this is the last feed the lawn will get for some time.

How often should the business mow its lawn in autumn?

Although the air is less warm, the ground tends to dry up during autumn. This means you may not need to mow your lawn nearly as much as you would. Growth will be stunted and the grass will begin to die. If by this point the lawn is already deteriorated then you may want to consider a complete re-turf.

 

How should the business deal with weeds and moss during autumn?

Towards the end of the season, we will start to see patches of rain. This will make the ground moist and the perfect breeding ground for weeds and moss. After rainy days you should check the lawn for any unwanted growth. Any new growth should be treated immediately with the appropriate killer.

 

How often should the business water its lawn autumn?

Once the heaven starts to open there will be almost no need to water the lawn. It may only need a top up at the very start of autumn, if the weather remains hot and dry.

OUR SEASONAL LAWN TREATMENT PROGRAMME

We offer businesses four seasonal visits to the premises, ensuring lawns and grounds have the perfect balance of nutrients 365 days a year.

Each quarterly visit covers the following:

Spring Treatment

Spring treatments usually commence from late March to early April, depending on the weather. We liaise with you directly to arrange an appointment to visit your premises, where we will provide essential nutrients together with a selective weed killer to improve the condition of your lawn after the harsh winter months. This fertiliser will stimulate growth and improve the colour of your lawn.

Summer Treatment

A controlled release granular fertiliser is applied to maintain the strong growth of your lawn and reduce the effects of warm, dry weather conditions. A spot spray selective herbicide may also be applied, if required to keep weed population to an absolute minimum. The combination of fertiliser and herbicide maintains a green, healthy-looking lawn throughout those enjoyable summer months. This treatment is normally applied between May and July.

Autumn Treatment

 

Our autumn treatment includes a fertiliser which contains less nitrogen but more magnesium. Magnesium helps to develop a strong root system on the lawn by protecting it from winter conditions. Again, a selective spot weedkiller may also be applied if required. This treatment is normally applied between August and September.

Winter Treatment

Once the summer sun has departed and the ground gets damp moss can begin to flourish. This winter treatment involves spraying the lawn with liquid iron which turns the moss black almost instantly and gradually works its way into the roots. This improves the colour of the grass so that it looks it’s best throughout the winter months. Winter treatments will start in October at the earliest.
