When should you feed your lawn?
Before the beginning of the growth period, in March, apply some spring fertiliser to encourage new growth and your lawn will soon be back in excellent green condition.
In April or May, use a slow release fertiliser, possibly combined with weed control to maintain healthy growth and a magnificent colour during the next months.
An additional application of fertiliser will ensure your lawn goes into winter in a healthy condition with a good root system.
Moss harms your lawn because it suffocates the grass and often causes brown patches.
Moss is caused by:
- Mowing too close
- Low nutrient levels in the soil for the grass
- Shade or lack of direct light
- Compacted, poorly aerated soil
- Acid soil conditions
It is recommended to scarify/comb your lawn after moss control to remove any dead grass. You may then also wish to over seed.
