June lawn care tips

By on June 10, 2015

lawnpic1The past few weeks rain and warmer temperatures plus longer day light hours have created perfect growing conditions for grass. We recommend the following:

  • Cutting the grass at least every 7 days if possible!
  • If the grass gets away from you please do not try and cut it down in one pass with the mower, two cuts a few days apart will be better.
  • Please try and cut when you get chance, you do not have to wait for the perfect conditions. Most mowers with a sharp blade will cut in damp conditions. Remember to give the mower a good clean afterwards.
  • You can also reduce the height of the cut but do not go lower than 3/4 of an inch.

Aeration and seeding poor areas of a lawn

Any poor areas of grass such as high traffic areas will benefit from an aertion with an aerator or even a fork to create some holes for the grass seed to fall into and then germinate. So create plenty of holes then apply grass seed and water well. A light covering of fine top soil will help encourage germination. If you would like any help or advice please do get in touch.
