Spare a thought for your lawn

The Lawn ShopSpare a thought for your lawn and garden this coming weekend if the weather is dry and mild and blow away the January and New Year holiday blues with some much needed fresh air in the garden!

Make sure that you have blown or raked up all of the leaves and debris and trimmed the edges. 

It is not too early in the year to mow your lawn so don’t think that you are getting off lightly and hide the mower in the garden shed until the spring time and head out to the shops or golf club!  The weather is really mild for the start of January but a cold snap is promised and some areas do have snowfall.  Only mow if  ground conditions permit and the lawn really needs a quick tidy up.

Your lawn has not stopped growing.  Growth has slowed but not stopped yet as frosts have been few, especially in the South East.  Every warm day we get will increase the natural metabolic rate of the lawn and make it grow some more.

If you have bare areas in your lawn, why not consider giving it a little fertiliser to give it a little boost?  You do not have to overdo it with the nutrients, just a little tickle or maybe a little Soluble Iron to colour it up and retard any moss.

Worm casts can be a real problem too and now these can be controlled with a new product distributed via The Lawn Company and their Lawn Shop called CastClear to control lawn worm casts.  The worms are great for the lawn, but their casts make such a mess.  Worms naturally eat soil and extract the goodness from it before passing it out of their bodies onto the surface.  Excessive fallen leaves will encourage worms as will not collecting the grass clippings each time you mow.

Over 350 Garden Centres are now stocking CastClear, the domestic approved lawn worm cast control product.  Ask at your local Garden Centre for a 1 Litre bottle of CastClear which will treat up to 500 sqm.  Failing this, you can buy in The Lawn Shop and a handy Garden Sprayer too to apply it.  One customer who recently purchased CastClear said 'The stuff really works a treat.'

The Team at The Lawn Shop have over 34 years practical, technical and commercial knowledge of lawns and their care so you can rely on their advice and products as their Team use the Lawn Shop products on Clients lawns.   Give them a try.
