A healthy lawn complements a colourful spring garden. It’s the perfect time to get your green thumb on to make sure your lawn is ready for the long, warm days.
Mow regularly to prevent cutting more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time. The goal is to keep the lawn at the same height.
Normal lawn- 2.5
Heavily used lawn- 5
Lawn in shaded area- 7.5
Remove any twigs and leaves that have accumulated over the winter to make way for fertilisers.
A good long-term fertiliser will make your grass stronger, thicker and greener. Apply fertilisers when rain is forecasted, or when the soil is moist.
Every year, up to a quarter of the grass in the lawn can die. Sowing new grass into your lawn can improve the lawn’s thickness, meaning you’ll reduce the risk of weed and moss.
