Bank Holiday Lawn Care Tips

Grassclippings - Bank Holiday Lawn CareYou can tell by the weather of the last few days  that we are embarking on a Bank Holiday weekend.

Looks like sunshine and showers but naturally, the weather does not deter the British having a fun weekend off.

Below are a few Bank Holiday tips and jobs to be getting on with, should you be planning a weekend at home catching up in the garden after the drought. 

Mow your lawn multi direction to keep the grasses upright

Tackle any lawn weed problems with a good selective lawn weed killer

Use Indigo Garden Spray Dye to help you with your liquid garden treatments

Fertilise your lawn if you have not already with a granular lawn fertiliser. You should fertilise it again in three months time.

Control any Worm Casts with CastClear, the retail lawn worm cast suppressant.  It's a brand new web site too!

Trim the edges of the lawn where it meets the terrace, peathway or shrub borders

Keep a look out for Leatherjacket and Chafer Beetle Larvae and treat with Bayer Provado whilst we still have it available.

Over seed with new grass seed any bare areas, large and small.  Do not treat with a lawn weed killer until you can count four leaves on the new grass plants and then only use Vitax Lawn Clear.

Keep a look out for Red Thread Disease too.
