Winter Autumn Lawn Care

Snow British Summer Time ended at the weekend and more recently with a few centimetres of snow covering the South of England last night - the first time it has snowed in October since 1934!

The numerous tasks of autumn lawn care are still necessary this month and a little cold snap will only lengthen the germination time of new grass seeds sown.  Turf can be laid all year round so long as the turf farm can lift the turf.

The demands of the lawn are are still paramount, the problem is that lawn owners often only appreciate the needs of the lawn in the spring and warmer months.

If you still have weeds and moss making up the majority percentage of your green sward, you should be cruel to be kind and arrange for you Lawn Treatment Company to pop round to kill them quickly.  Once completed, arrange to have the lawns scarified and then aerated about two weeks later, then fertilised with a good autumn lawn fertiliser and over seeded with new grass seed.  You may like to review our earlier post on Autumn Lawn Care and also Renovating a Lawn.

One important aspect of lawn care in the autumn is to ensure that any fallen leaves are cleared away quickly via a leaf blower or lawn rake to prevent the smothering of the existing and new grasses.  The technique is to retain any grass covering in the autumn and winter months and keep the turf grasses healthy and dense.
