Spring Lawn Care Guide

Mowing

Don’t be tempted to mow your lawn too early or when the ground conditions are very wet or frosty. Ensure that your mower blades are sharp and are set high so as to take no more than a third off the length of the plant.

Feeding

As the lawn begins to grow it will require nutrients, which are essential to its growth.  We recommend feeding your lawn using fertiliser every 6 weeks during the growing season.

Feeding

Dealing with Pests

If you notice that your lawn is growing slowly or turning yellowy brown in patches this could be due to lawn pests, the most common of these at this time are Leatherjackets and Chafer grubs. These pests can be controlled.  Refer to Lawn Pests and Diseases for further information.

Overseeding

Spring is a good time to repair any sparse or thinner patches on your lawn which may have occurred during the winter period. we recommend that Lawn seed is lightly raked into the area. Badly damaged or sunken areas may need topsoil to raise levels and provide a new seed bed.
