If you would like a really nice lawn throughout the year the work starts in the spring. As the days lengthen and the grass begins to grow. Follow these tips from the lawn care experts at Greengrass for a healthy lush lawn throughout the year.
mowing your lawn in spring
When your grass is 2-3 inches long then it is time for the first cut, set the mower on a high setting to remove only about one third of the growth. Over the next few weeks gradually reduce the height aiming always to only take off the top third. To trim the edges of the lawn set a line along the edge and either cut with a spade or use a half-moon edging tool.
feeding your lawn in spring
Our first recommended lawn treatment should be applied between late March and late May, depending on the weather. We will book an appointment to visit your property and provide essential nutrients to improve the condition of your lawn. One of our operatives will come and apply a controlled release granular fertiliser. This fertiliser stimulates growth and improves the colour of your lawn. At the same time, we will apply a selective weedkiller if required. We recommend that you do not cut your grass for 3 days prior to and 5 – 7 days following treatment.
