Summer Lawn Care Guide

Mowing

At this time of year you may need to mow more often, maybe up to twice a week. Care must be taken if the temperature becomes very high as mowing your lawn too short will cause it to become stressed. Ensure that your mower blades are sharp and are set between 25mm and 40mm.

Watering

Irrigate as necessary dependant upon weather conditions. Ideally your lawn needs to be watered evenly during the early morning or early evening as these are the most beneficial times of day.

Feeding

As your lawn is in active growth it will require nutrients which are essential to providing a green and healthy lawn.  We recommend feeding your lawn using fertiliser every 6 weeks during the growing season.

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.
