Seasonal advice

Spring – March to May

  • First cuts should be on a fairly high setting just topping off the grass.
  • Gradually reduce the height of cut to the desired height over a period of a month.
  • Cut the grass in different directions to ensure a uniform height and a thicker sward.
  • Over seed any thin or bare areas.

 

Summer – June to August

  • During dry periods an occasional soaking of the lawn will help sustain the grass and prevent problems.
  • Also consider raising the height of cut to help retain moisture in the soil.
  • If you have children’s play equipment on the lawn moving them regularly will prevent any one area getting too much wear and tear.
  • As grass growth slows reduce the frequency of mowing the lawn
  • Watch out for patchy/ irregular growth which could indicate a problem in the soil with insects, dry patch, etc

Autumn – September to November

  • Keep cutting the lawn as long as the grass is growing, this will prevent it getting too long and make it easier for clearing the leaves.
  • You can gradually reduce the frequency of cuts as growth slows.
  • You should raise the height of cut as growth slows.
  • Clear the leaves off the lawn as frequently as possible. This will prevent the leaves acting as a mulch and killing the grass.
  • Avoid walking on the grass when there is a frost if possible to prevent damage to the grass and causing unsightly marks.

Winter – December to February

  • Clear any leaves or other debris from the lawn
  • Avoid walking on the grass when there is a frost if possible to prevent damage to the grass and causing unsightly marks.
  • Aerating the lawn at this time will address any compaction and will also aid stronger and deeper root development.
  • Get the lawn mower serviced
