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.

 

watering your lawn in spring

It is not usually necessary to water your lawn in the spring, however if you choose to water then make sure that the water penetrates the soil. Surface watering only encourages roots on the surface. Watering should ideally be carried out in the early morning or in the evening.

 

Additional spring lawn treatments

Spring is also the time to check the overall condition your lawn. Here at Greengrass we offer a number of services that will help your lawn including:

Scarification – This process of mechanically raking the lawn removes thatch (dead grass) and moss. More details here

Aeration – Aeration perforates the soil to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate down to the roots, aiding root growth. More details here.

Renovation and Top Dressing – If your lawn is in poor condition, then we may offer this service to improve it. Renovation involves deeply scarifying the lawn in several directions, reseeding and applying a high-quality top dressing. More details here.

Re-Turfing – If your lawn is in really poor condition, then the ultimate treatment is to remove the old grass completely and lay fresh turf. Greengrass use only the best locally grown turf.

Pest Control – Chafer & Leather Jackets grubs are also treated at this time. See here for more details.

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. This fertiliser help to maintain a green, healthy-looking lawn throughout those enjoyable Summer months. This treatment is normally applied between late 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. This treatment is normally applied between September and November.

Winter Treatment

Once the Autumn 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.
