Springing your Lawn into Life

Grass Clippings - Spring Lawn CareWow!  That was a bit of a long wet, cold, icy, snowy Winter but I think Spring has finally arrived!  An early Easter next weekend is always a boost for the Garden Industry as Gardeners soon get thinking about their gardens and lawns.

The problem with this past Winter is that there have not been very nice weather weekends to encourage people out into their garden and fresh air.  Instead we have all been huddled up in the warm suffering from Flu and Cold!

April can be a hard month for the garden, and we are not out of the woods yet as we enter the last weekend of March.  I can recall snow in April and the scaremongering comments from the Weather Forecasters do not help in claiming that it is going to be a cold; even snowy Easter with another 'Beast in some shape or form from the East.'

Time to fire up the lawn mower that has laid buried in the garden shed and get it serviced ready for the spring time rapid grass growth.

Here are a few jobs you can get to grips with this weekend on your lawns:

  1. Trim the lawn edges
  2. Mow the lawn on a high setting to tidy it up if ground conditions permit
  3. Rake up the last of the autumn and winter tree debris
  4. Apply a Soluble Iron from The Lawn Shop to retard the moss. Scarify out two weeks later
  5. Control your lawn worm casts with CastClear - available from over 450 retail stockists or online
  6. Treat your patio and driveway with a residual weed killer and use Indigo Garden Spray Dye to assist you when making the application. Let's you see where you have or have not or should not have sprayed!
  7. Rake out any Mole Hills and level these
  8. Clear and shrub overhang from the lawn
  9. Restore the edges of the lawn
  10. Visit The Lawn Shop for your spring granular fertiliser

Whatever you have planned this weekend, enjoy!
