WHEN SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS BEGIN ITS SUMMER LAWN MAINTENANCE?
The business should consider booking in a professional treatment from around May. This would be a top up treatment over a full treatment, as a full treatment isn’t necessary during this time. It will still need some sort of treatment to avoid drying in the heat.
Why should the business treat its lawn in summer?
Although you may have seen growth during spring, summer will see a huge growth spurt. It’s important to ensure that you cater to the lawn while it grows, as it needs the additional nutrients to
bulk up and become brighter and more colourful. This is also a perfect opportunity to nip any weeks or moss in the bud.
What should the business use to treat its lawn during summer?
A professional lawn care specialist will use a granular fertilizer that is high in nitrogen to treat the lawn. They are also likely to use a targeted herbicide spray. Summer in the UK can get extremely hot, so it’s important to ensure it is well watered and given plenty of nutrients to survive the heat.
