When should you begin your autumn treatment?

When the leaves begin to turn yellow and red – usually between August and September. You need to retreat your lawn during this period as the sun still shines and the days stay long. These months also tend to be much drier, so it’s important to keep your lawn hydrated.


Why should you treat your lawn in autumn?

In Autumn we start to see all types of plant slowly dry and begin to die. You can use this opportunity to give your lawn one last proper feed before it hibernates during winter. It is also a good time to check on weed and moss growth.


What should you use to treat your lawn during autumn?

Much like spring and summer, you should ideally use a granular fertilizer that’s rich in nitrogen. You should also use a targeted herbicide spray to keep unwanted plant life away. This is the last time you will be able to keep your lawn healthy and strong before winter hits.

How often should I mow my lawn in autumn?

As the sun takes it toll on your lawn, you may find that growth begins to slow and you may not need to mow very often at all. If your lawn at this point appears to have already begun dying, it may be worth considering a complete returf. This will prolong the life of your lawn.


How do I deal with weeds and moss during autumn?

At the very end of autumn is when we begin to start seeing wetter weather. A sudden increase is wet weather, after many dry months, can create the perfect breeding ground for weeds and moss. Always check your lawns during wet periods to ensure there are no unwanted visitors. The moment you see any weeds or moss you must treat it as soon as possible with the appropriate treatment.


How often do I need to water my lawn autumn?

As the sun starts to disappear and the heavens start to open, you’ll find that there is little to no need to water your lawn whatsoever. Your lawn only really needs water during spring and summer, but you may find that there is a need at the very beginning of autumn. When your lawn shows signs of deterioration, consider giving it a watery boost.

Summer Treatment

Summer is a time to enjoy your lawn. To help survive the wear and tear from children, pets and mowers, a controlled release granular fertiliser is applied. This maintains the strong growth of your lawn and reduces the effects of warm, dry weather conditions.

A spot spray selective herbicide may also be applied, 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

As the evenings draw in and we all prepare for Winter, your lawn needs some preparation too. 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. If required, a selective spot weed killer will be applied. This treatment is normally applied between August and September.

Winter Treatment

Once the Summer sun has departed and the ground gets damp, moss begins 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 its best throughout the Winter months. Winter treatments start in December.
