  • Spring Lawn Care

    Spring is a very important season for looking after your lawn. After the rigours of winter it needs careful attention as soon as the days start to lengthen and the grass starts to grow. Giving the lawn the care it needs now will ensure the best possible results throughout the year.

    Feeding

    It is essential that you feed your lawn during spring. The grass plants are growing rapidly at this time and require the correct nutrients in the correct quantities in order to grow strong and healthy, resulting in a thicker, denser, greener sward.

    Apply a fertiliser, such as Rolawn GroRight Lawn Fertiliser, Weed & Moss Killer.

    Broadleaf weeds

    If your lawn contains broadleaf weeds, treat these using a suitable selective herbicide or an all-in-one treatment, such as Rolawn GroRight Lawn Fertiliser, Weed & Moss Killer. Alternatively, you can weed them out using a knife or mechanical weeder, but make sure you get the root of the weed out.

    Aeration

    Aerate consolidated areas of the lawn with a fork or with a spiking machine. This will relieve compaction, improve drainage and allow more air into the root system leading to a healthier lawn.

    Overseeding

    Overseeding will improve the lawn’s colour, help fill in damaged or worn areas and reduce possible weed and moss invasion. We recommend a mix of Rolawn Lawn Seed with Lawn Topdressing brushed into the surface of the lawn. The seed will germinate and fill in any sparse or thinner areas.
