Spring Lawn Care

Grassclippings - Spring Lawn CareThe grass is growing and the Daffodils are coming out.  Lawns are a little soft still underfoot and some are still quite flooded but spring is around the corner.

It has been a very mild winter so far with many days with temperatures in double figures.  There have been hardly any ground frosts, with most night time temperatures being in positive figures.  It has however been very wet and The Met Office have declared it the wettest winter on record.

Any nutrients in the soil would have leached out with the excessive ranfall and your lawns will be starving and in desperate need of some lawn fertiliser.

There is lots of moss around too and this can now be treated with Soluble Iron.  It is still too early to scarify your lawn despite what some lawn treatment companies tell you.  Below is a list of handy tips for jobs to get on with to bring your lawn out of the winter doldrums.

Spring Lawn Care Tasks

Raise your mower height and lightly top the grass

Control any moss with soluble iron

Aerate your lawn to alleviate the surface compaction caused by the excessive rainfall

Clear up any winter debris and trim the edges of the lawn

Control any lawn worm casts with CastClear

Order your lawn fertiliser

Take a look around The Lawn Shop for your lawn care supplies
