Lawn Advice from The Lawn Shop

Dry Patches on LawnThe weather has been a bit dry with only 13 days of rain in March and some ultra high temperatures last Easter Weekend peaking at 26.4 degrees centigrade and only 5 days of rain in the month to date giving us 14.6mm and today is the 25th of April.  Madness, and not really helpful to lawn owners and Gardeners.

You should be well into the swing of mowing your lawns now but we are not really confident that we have seen the spring rush of growth.  A lot of lawn owners are holding back applying lawn treatments like fertiliser and weed killer as the lawns are quite stressed.  You should avoid applying lawn products in times of drought and a drought is defined as 13 days of no rain and we are will into this time frame now.

There is some around over the next couple of days leading into the weekend and a bit like the typical April weather we are used to, April showers.

Visit or this lawn advice blog for your lawn advice and snippets and get your treatment products ordered as a lot of lawns are still suffering from the heatwave of last year with lots of dry bare areas showing minimal or no grass growth.
