Now is the ideal time to start preparing your lawn for winter so it stays looking green and healthy for those cosy autumn evenings – and ready to bounce right back in the spring.
Autumn is the perfect time of year for lawn treatment as the soil temperature is still warm enough to stimulate grass growth.
Here are some simple tips on how to maintain your lawn in autumn
- Scarify and reduce dead grass and old moss to help water and fertiliser from getting through to the roots and soil.
- Aerate your lawn as it is key to a well maintained lawn.You are simply spiking the lawn to allow for more air and nutrients including water to get to the grass roots.
- Apply top dressing to improve soil structure and encourage strong root development to support a healthy lawn working it well into the holes created by spiking
- Apply autumn lawn weed and feed product to ensure that the roots are still growing strong throughout the winter. These are best applied using a lawn spreader and a autumn version is the best to apply at this time of year
