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.

We hope you enjoy following our tips this March and if you have any questions, please contact us.

September Lawn Care Tips

So… the sun really didn’t fancy coming out this summer and unless we have a late and very unexpected summer in September I think it’s safe to say that the autumn is now on its way. Boo for us!

However for your lawn it’s not actually too bad, your lawn can be totally renovated in September and this can seriously increase its health.

For September your main jobs are:

  • Fertlising
  • Weed control
  • Scarifying
  • Aeration
  • Top dressing
  • Over seeding

Fertilising and weed control are self explanatory and whether its us who treats your lawn or you DIY, fertilising your lawn will increase its health which in turn will help to keep its strength up throughout the colder months.

RENOVATIONS

Ok… The IMPORTANT bit… Renovations in September are a must if you’re looking to give your lawn a total health boost.

Scarifying and aerating (preferably hollow tine) will increase the surface drainage and absorption of moisture and nutrients to the roots of the grass. Adding top dressing and over -seeding will improve soil surface once again and increase the rate of recovery.

TURFING 

Turfing can be carried out at just about any time so long as the weather conditions aren’t too extreme. September is great for turf to establish itself through the increased amount of moisture while moderate soil temperatures will increase the root development. We can remove and lay a whole new lawn or extend/patch up sections or create you a new lawn area – whatever your turfing needs are, I’m sure we can provide you with your wish!

MOWING  

If temperatures are still mild and moisture levels are decent then continue to mow every 7-10 days at around 1.5 inches. If temperatures lower and moisture levels increase you should mow at a higher height and less frequently.

The mix of conditions in august will have left your lawn maybe a little patchy and there might be a pest/disease making itself at home. If you spot any discolouration, patches or any other changes then please give us a call – we can visit FREE of charge, diagnose you problem and recommend an effective treatment.

We hope you have a great September! Watch out for our Autumn Newsletter – publishing soon.
