November Lawn Care Tasks

GrassClippings - November Lawn CareIt's firework season this coming weekend so that means that is may be windy and wet later!  Currently the forecast states dry for Saturday evening in the South East and wet for Sunday evening and wet and windy for Guy Fawkes night.

At this time of year, the lawn will be dew covered for most of the day on a dry, still day.  The grasses will have slowed down but growth will not stop.  We have not had a lot of frosts as yet which is always good and the lawn should be mown about twice monthly this month, less if we get nightime frosts.

If you get chance this coming weekend to get out into the garden and chase some leaves around, here is a list of lawn care tasks that you could do if ground conditions permit:

Mow the lawn on a higher than usual lawn setting Control any moss with Soluble Iron
Fertilise your lawn with an autumn and winter lawns fertiliser or a spring summer lawn fertiliser but at half the summer dose rate

Clear up any leaves and debris from the surface of the lawn
 
Control any lawn worm casts to stop the high volume of mud forming on the lawn's surface
 
Over seed any bare areas, it is still not too late
 
Trim the edges of the lawn and prune any shrub over hang
 
Aerate your lawn with a solid tine
 
Control ay weeds with a lawn weed killer, it is not too late to get it weed free
