4 Seasons treatment plan
Late Winter/Early Spring Lawn Care Treatment
Grass starts to grow vigorously and requires the correct amount and mix of nutrients to take advantage of these growing conditions for its continued development. Weak grass will allow weeds and moss to take hold. Healthy grass will limit their development. Our spring lawn care treatments combines an application of a specialised fertiliser and a broad spectrum herbicide, which helps to control common weeds, such as clover, daisies, dandelions, etc.
Early Summer Lawn Care Treatment
The grass needs encouragement to continue to grow thick and healthily. A balance of increased potassium and phosphorous combined with a nitrogen feed will afford the grass enough nourishment for the next 8-12 weeks. We apply a further broad spectrum systemic herbicide to control some of the more difficult weeds as well as the more common types.
Autumn Lawn Care Treatment
We will always check your lawn for disease, but this time of your is when conditions are usually perfect for diseases to attack your lawn. An application of moss control is key, together with a further application of herbicide and a fertiliser to encourage grass root development.
Winter Lawn Care Treatment
At this time of year one of the most important feed applications should be made, providing the lawn with the right amount of nutrients, combined with a heavy dose of moss control. It is important that moss is not allowed to develop in your lawn as this will inhibit the growth of grass.
Scarifying is an essential part of lawn maintenance. It is the process of raking your lawn to prevent the build up of thatch which is the perfect growing medium for disease and bacteria. It also suffocates the roots of your grass by impeding the flow of oxygen, carbon dioxide and moisture and allowing moss to take a hold.
Aerating a lawn will split the roots of the grass, this encourages offshoots to grow and in turn, will thicken your lawn. Lawn Spiking and Aerating allows the free movement of nutrients, water and air around the roots and helps prevent the growth of moss. Most lawns need to be relieved of compaction of the soil and it is the process of aeration which allows this.
