Daffodils in the spring

Howdy!

Weather in March seems like it’s going to be a mixed bag! Today alone, sunny and then snowing, it can’t make its mind up so don’t be rushing in to any heavy renovations just yet.

You may have a lawn that’s looking a little bare or sad after the winter we’ve had and it will probably require repairing and renovations. For more information on scarification, aeration, top dressing, over seeding and how these will help your lawn, click here .

Here are your TO DO’s for March:

Cooler, unpreditable weather:

  • Trim the lawn – keep the cut high while the weather stays like this.
  • Manually remove weeds from your borders and lawn if there’s not a massive amount of them. If there is, apply a weed killer (our seasonal treatment includes one) in milder weather.
  • Hold off on any renovations such as scarification, hollow tine aeration and over seeding.
  • You can spike your lawn (solid tine aeration.)
  • No watering needed.
  • Avoid rolling.
  • Turfing – PERFECT TIME!

Milder weather:

  • Lower the cut of your mower if the weather starts to improve.
  • We’ll be applying our seasonal treatment (weed, feed and more) on dry milder days.
  • Keep weeding.
  • Edge the lawn to give it a neater look.
  • Kill and then scarify the moss and thatch from your lawn. We recommend, for moss ridden lawns, applying top dressing and over seeding after scarification to help speed up the recover process.
  • Hollow tine aeration is recommended if your lawn is holding water on the surface and/or had a lot of moss/thatch.
  • No watering needed.
  • If you feel your needs to be rolled, then do so after frost, when temps are milder.
  • Turfing – PERFECT TIME!

Pesky diseases and pests can affect your lawn your lawn all year round, if you suspect you have something lurking in your lawn; see our common problems page which will help you to identify and rectify the problem.
