As spring turns into summer and temperatures rise the growth of the grass will slow down, this is the time to enjoy your lawn and reap the benefits of the work you have put in over the year to maintain it.
mowing your lawn in the summer
With a rise in temperature and growth slowing you can reduce the frequency of mowing always ensuring that your mower is sharp and not taking off more than a third of the grass at any one time.
If the weather is really hot then avoid cutting your lawn as this will cause stress to the grass. If it is not too hot and you are going on holiday it is a good idea to arrange for your lawn to be mowed while you are away. Greengrass offer a Lawn Cutting Service, please contact us for further details.
Feeding your lawn in the summer
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 June and August/early September. As with all our treatments this treatment is harmless to children and pets.
