When should you begin your winter treatment?

As soon as you reach October you need to think about treating your lawn for moss and weeds. Despite the stunt in grass growth, moss continues to thrive during wetter, darker months. You will need to begin treatment before it gets too wet and cold.


Why should you treat your lawn in winter?

Unlike other months, we don’t need to encourage growth. So the reason to treat your lawn during this time is simply to survive the winter. Treatment can help to stimulate chlorophyll activity and encourage stronger, more robust grass. Treatments will also help to dehydrate your lawn in order to avoid overhydration from rain and snow (it also helps to kill any moss).


What should you use to treat your lawn during winter?

There is very little to treat your lawn with during this time, however, you will almost always need to treat your lawn with blanket spray. This will help to keep moss and weeds at bay, so you don’t come back to a jungle in the spring.

How often should I mow my lawn in winter?

As the sun disappears the grass will have no way to photosynthesize and therefore will stop growing. It’s very unlikely that you will need to mow your lawn at all during the winter, however, you can still mow it if it becomes too long (just be careful not to cut it too short, no less than 2 inches).


How do I deal with weeds and moss during winter?

Unfortunately, it’s all too common for moss and weeds to grow during the winter months, especially moss. The damp weather becomes a breeding ground for moss spores and you can quickly find yourself in a mossy green sea. Regular maintenance will help to reduce this, however, you can also treat specific areas of your lawn if you find more troublesome patches.


How often do I need to water my lawn winter?

You do not need to water your lawn during winter, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. During the wet months, you in fact need to focus on dehydrating your lawn. Drying your lawn will help to avoid overhydration and can also help to deter and kill off unwanted weeds and moss. You will not need to water your lawn again until March the following year.

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.

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 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. If required, a selective spot weed killer will be applied. This treatment is normally applied between August and September.

Winter Treatment

Once the Summer 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.
