June Lawn Care Tips

Grass Clippings - June Lawn Care TipsWe think that June will be the wettest June on record if this spell of wet weather continues.  Having said this, the months of April and May were a bit short in the rainfall figures so nature always has a good way of balancing out.  We feel for the home owners affected by the floods in their local areas.

The summer social season commenced with the Boat Race, then The Derby, The Grand National and then it's Royal Ascot, Boodles Tennis at the Queens Club, Henley Royal Regatta and the Tennis at Wimbledon to name a few.  Don't these people have work to do?

Whilst the high society is quaffing Champagne at these events, let's take a look at some of the lawn care tasks their at home gardening teams will be performing in their absence:
  1. Fertilise your lawns with their second treatment of the year to ward off Red Thread Disease and keep them in tip top condition
  2. Pick up on any lawn weed control
  3. Control Anthills
  4. Trim the edges
  5. Service the lawn mower or at least check the blade and change the oil and inspect the air filter and plug
  6. Apply a wetting agent to cure or prevent localised dry patches, Apply as a liquid, granular or hose diluter tablet
  7. Over seed with new grass seed any bare areas like shrub overhang areas
  8. Keep a sharp look out for Chafer Beetle Larvae eating your grass roots and treat with Biological Nematodes
  9. No harm in some light scarification to lift up the flowering 'bents'
  10. Change the direction of the mower each time you mow
  11. Move the garden furniture and trampolines so that the grass does not die underneath if it stays in one position for weeks on end
  12. Finally, enjoy your lawn, maybe sat in the lounger sipping Champagne
