Spring

Spring is the most important season of the year. As the ground starts to warm, the grass starts to grow. And after the cooler winter months now is the time to ensure that your Lawn will look good the rest of the year. Before starting to mow your Lawn, ensure that all debris is removed, to avoid damage to your mower. Set your mower to its highest setting, this setting can be reduced through the growing season. April is probably the best time to apply your Spring Lawn Feed, ensuring your Lawn has all the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy. If you need to apply a weed killer, wait until the weeds and grass are in full growth.

Summer

Continue to mow your Lawn every week if necessary, and in extremely hot weather keep it well watered to retain its colour (morning and evening if possible). If you have applied your Spring feed, your Lawn should not require any further feeding until Autumn, as the Spring feed will have provided the Lawn with all the nutrients it needs for the Summer. So all you have to do is get out and enjoy your garden in the good weather.

Autumn

The Autumn months are the last of the growing season, therefore, it is important that you take care of your Lawn in order to prepare and strengthen it for the cold Winter months. The correct feeding and maintenance will ensure the quality and health of your Lawn. Due to falling temperatures, the growth rate of the grass will begin to slow, leading to fewer cuts. This is a good time to apply your Autumn Lawn Feed, giving the Lawn the nutrients it needs to survive the Winter. Turfman.co.uk has a full range of fertilisers which can be purchased from this website.

 

Autumn

Aerating your Lawn improves drainage and allows more air to the root system of the grass plant. Aeration can be done with a Hand Fork or Spiking Machine.

Worm activity is beneficial to Lawns, as they help to improve the nutrient content of the soil. At certain times of the year you may notice deposits of mud on the Lawn, these are known as ‘Worm Casts’. Worm casts are produced during September to October and March to early May and can also occur during mild weather in Winter months. Worm casts can encourage moss and weeds, however by leaving the cast to dry and then removing with a brush will help to mimimize the problem.

   

Winter

Grass plant growth will slow during the Winter
months, therefore, it is advisable that you keep off the Lawn, especially if it has been wet or frosty as you can damage the plant. In milder weather the grass will continue to grow, and mowing can be done when necessary, ensure that your Lawn-mower is at its
highest setting. DO NOT mow the Lawn if there has
been a heavy frost or the ground is very wet. If there
are leaves or debris on the Lawn use a light rake/brush
to sweep them off. It is also a good idea to service your Lawnmower during the Winter months.
