Autumn Lawn Care Tips

Autumn Lawn Care Autumn officially arrives a little later this month and an ideal time to plan your autumn lawn renovation programme.

This year the lawns took a caning with the early drought and the well cared for lawns survived the best - survival of the fittest.  Any still dry and non grass areas should be worked on with a wetting agent tablet to try and cure the soil bourne problem.  Nothing will grow where the soil is so dry because it has become hydrophobic.

The majority of lawns are only fertilised once a year, usually in the spring.  Every lawns should be fertilised at least three to four times a year, once every three months with different nutrient products throughout the year.   There is still time to selective weed control your lawns and get rid of the weeds that thrived during the recent drought.  The nice people at The Lawn Shop can quickly supply you with your requirements.

You will soon notice worm casts appearing on the surface of the lawn.  This year unlike previous years, help is available to control these pesky soil deposits with a control product called CastClear, available in a 1 Litre bottle.  The chemical acts as a deterrent to the worm forcing them to stay below  the lawn's surface and not cast on the surface.

Turf professionals are now planning their autumn renovation of their fine turf areas and organising the equipment of scarifiers and aerators and purchasing turf and top soil and grass seed.

There are lots of articles on this lawn advice blog to help you plan the renovation of your lawn.  Any work you do to the well being of the lawn now will pay you dividends next year.  All you should have in your lawn are healthy and desirable turf grasses that grow together in harmony to provide a dense covering on the underlying soil.
