If you’re a new homeowner or you just want healthier and greener grass in your garden, let us provide you with some tips on how to maintain your lawn. In this blog, we’ve put together some great lawn care advice to help you take care of your grass straight away.
1. Remove The Weeds
Start off by weeding, since many weeds are opportunistic, they will grow wherever in your garden, including your lawn. You can get rid of them by hand, but be sure to get all the roots out, especially if they are weeds like dandelions, and don’t let them flower. A specific selective lawn weedkiller can also be used to spray weeds, and when used properly, it won’t hurt the grass.
In the summer, we advise cutting your grass twice a week. Make sure your mower’s blades are nice and sharp, and don’t ever remove more than a third of the height of your grass in a single mowing session.
It might not be required to water the grass manually if there has been frequent rainfall. However, your lawn will start to show signs of stress after about a week without moisture, so during dry spells, water your lawn heavily once or twice a week.
To ensure that your grass is receiving the nutrients it needs to be healthy, use lawn fertiliser. Wait till your grass is dry before applying fertiliser, and keep in mind that more fertiliser may not always result in better outcomes. Apply just occasionally to prevent damage.
Rainfall and the weight of footsteps over time will compact the soil in your garden. Aeration, a procedure that involves spiking holes in your lawn to loosen the soil and boost the movement of air and moisture, is an effective approach to this issue. Your lawn should be aerated at least once every two to three years, ideally in the autumn.
If your grass floods after heavy rainfall, there is a lack of drainage. Aeration (see above) may help your grass drain more effectively, but if your garden floods regularly, you may have to excavate a drainage system to make sure the additional water can drain off your lawn.
We all adore cats and dogs, but trying to protect your grass against animals can be quite a challenge. To keep the rest of your grass protected, if possible, encourage your pet to stay off the grass or to be contained in a small area of it
And finally, when all the work is done sit back and relax and enjoy your garden this summer.
We hope this small guide has given you inspiration on how to maintain your lawn and keep it perfect throughout the summer months.
