Spring Time Lawn Care
Spring is an important time of the year to start looking after your lawn.
After the winter period it needs looking after to give your lawn a good start.
As the grass starts to grow after its winter sleep, it’s important to set your mower on a higher setting so only cutting the top off the grass over the next few weeks of mowing.
This will help the grass to grow quicker and after a few weeks you can set your mower back down to a lower setting.
The aim should be to keep it at the same height all through spring. For most lawns this should be about 2.5-4cm (1-1.5in) high. For lawns that take a lot of wear and tear the height is better raised to 5cm (2in). For very shaded areas, mow at a height of 7.5cm (3in).
Mowing too short and, as a consequence weakening the grass, is the quickest and easiest way of allowing weeds and moss to become established and spoiling the lawn.
It is also a good idea to feed your lawn at this time of year, you can buy a good lawn feed from your local garden centre.
A good feed with a lawn fertiliser, not only makes the grass greener, but it makes it grow thicker and increases its strength, vigour and health so it is more robust and better equipped to compete with weeds, moss and weather-related stresses. In spring, the best results are achieved by using a granular feed that supplies a regular amount of nutrients over several weeks.
To feed and control weeds & moss in the lawn during spring, use a lawn product such as EverGreen Complete 4 in 1. On weed and moss free lawns or to give a quick ‘fix’ and green up, use just a straight lawn food product such as EverGreen Extreme Green, these won't make any mention of weed or moss control.
