Seasonal Lawn Care Tips

Want a lush, green lawn you can be proud of throughout the year? It pays to plan ahead and invest in lawn care expertise throughout the year.

The lawn care treatments you invest in today should support the healthy development of your lawn 3, 6 and 12 months into the future. That’s why our year-round lawn care treatments are designed to nurture and repair your lawn in any weather.

Spring Lawn Care

We love springtime. The whole garden starts to wake up and become more active, and the grass responds well to tougher treatments like aeration & scarification. Early spring is the perfect time to start top dressing the lawn in readiness for a busy barbecue season, and a feed & weed treatment applied at this time of year will help your grass look lush and feel strong underfoot in the summer months.

Traditionally a period of high rainfall and warmer temperatures, soil can become very moist at this time of year; lawns face a higher risk of fungal diseases like red thread, especially if they’re already suffering from poor drainage. The best defence against fungal disease is healthy grass with deep roots; the sooner we can start aeration, scarification and feed & weed treatments, the better.

If you’re planning lots of barbecues and garden parties this summer, spring is the best time to fortify your grass against the bruising footsteps of family and friends. We can feed the lawn with the nutrients it needs to recover from lazy Sunday afternoons. We can also apply a wetting agent to the lawn to improve water management or prevent dry patch, so that your lawn looks fresh and inviting in the weekends to come.

Summer Lawn Care

Your grass reaches the peak of its activity cycle in summer, and may require additional watering, depending on the season. The grass is drenched in sunlight for long hours, giving it plenty of opportunity to flourish, but it’s also the riskiest time of year for your lawn.

Depending on how much time you’ve spent on your lawn this year, you might also be experiencing soil compaction, which can be improved with aeration (typically a spring or autumn job) and wetting agents. At this time of year, a feed & weed treatment can also sustain healthy growth.

Year-Round Lawn Care

Hard surface moss control is a popular treatment which we can apply at any time of year depending on the weather. We can’t apply moss control treatments in cold or wet weather, so the sooner you can ask us to help, the better.

A sensitive, responsive approach to seasonal lawn care

At Lawnkeeper we work in harmony with the weather, not the calendar month. If we’re facing an unseasonably warm February or a dry April, we’ll adjust our treatment profile to match the year’s circumstances. Your grass always gets the care it needs when it needs it.
