When winter comes your lawn still needs some care, you may like to stay in the warm but Greengrass operatives work all the year round. This is the time to keep your lawn free of leaves and other debris. Please give us a call if you would like a leaf clearance service.

mowing your lawn in winter

Grass grows very little in the winter, but if there is a warmer spell the grass may grow so an occasional light trim can be beneficial, as well as keeping off the grass as much as possible to avoid clogging the soil and creating bare patches.

Our Greengrass lawn treatment operative will call between December and February to apply the last of our quarterly treatments. This time it’s liquid iron which is applied to control moss. The moss in your lawn will turn black very quickly as the treatment works its way into the roots. Following this treatment your lawn will look greener and be healthier.

Additional lawn care sevices in winter

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

Finally, if you have your own lawn mower this is a good time to get it serviced and sharpen the blades ready for next 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. 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.
