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
Between late May and July, depending on the weather our Greengrass operatives will come and give the second treatment of the year, at this time we apply a controlled release granular fertiliser to maintain growth. As with all our treatments this treatment is harmless to children and pets.
