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.
