March 2022 Newsletter

It has been another mild and wet winter resulting in many lawns becoming waterlogged and a resurgence of moss. However, with dry and mild conditions in control for much of this week, it feels a little more like spring with the weather pattern expected to become more active by the final few days of March and into the start of April.

December 2021 Newsletter

After a wet autumn, many lawns have become saturated so do try to keep off them as much as possible and be prepared for some grass die back and a resurgence of moss. With high pressure over or near the UK for the time being, we can continue to expect settled and dry conditions, however this may change allowing more unsettled conditions as new year approaches.

September 2021 Newsletter

With leaves starting to fall, autumn is on its way and now is the time for renovation and repair work such as aeration, scarification, seeding and top dressing to ensure your lawn is in shape for the winter.

If you notice birds pecking at the lawn during the autumn, this is most likely to be caused by the presence of chafer grubs. Most lawns and gardens have a healthy number living in and around them without any problem, however an infestation can result in damage caused by birds and badgers seeking them out for breakfast.

June 2021 Newsletter

After a very wet May and warm start to June lawns are growing fast, so mowing at least once a week is important. However higher night time temperatures and humidity increase the risk of lawns being infected by diseases such as Red Thread.

Newsletter: May 2021

Where April gave us very dry weather and persistent cold nights, May has brought a fair amount of rain and the cold nights now appear to be behind us. The warmer weather and moisture in the soil should provide very good growth potential for the lawns in the coming weeks. However, along with this we are also starting to see the emergence of weeds, especially in weaker parts of the lawn.

The most common types of weed found on a lawn are classed as “broadleaf” (e.g. buttercups, dandelions, daisies). The leaf of these weeds prevent sunlight reaching the grass and stops water from reaching the soil beneath. Eventually, if untreated, these weeds can leave unsightly bare patches on the lawn.

In our Spring Application, in addition to a slow release fertiliser with an appropriate balance of nutrients for this time of year to strengthen the grass, we use a professional selective herbicide to attack the weed infestation. We then apply a further two doses of weedkiller in the summer and autumn as part of our recommended annual treatment programme.

If you’re not already one of our customers then do get in touch to arrange your free lawn analysis and quotation, and to discuss how Lawnkeeper Worcester can help you achieve a lawn to be proud of in 2021.
