chichester Lawncare, Lawn renovation and makeovers, summer mowing, portsmouth, emsworth, bognor regis, aldwick and pagham
We have spent the last month or so completing lawn renovations, makeovers and repairs across West Sussex and East Hampshire, that’s lawn’s in West & East Wittering, Aldwick, Itchenor, Midhurst, Hambrook, Emsworth, Barnham, Chichester, Porchester, Bosham, Southbourne, Havant, Portsmouth & Selsey that have needed help to get back to their best, most needing the work following damage in the extremes of last summer.
So we have been moving tonnes of top dressing and seed, applying wetting agents, scarifying, aerating and providing advice on how to ensure the best results, moisture being key to germination and establishment of new seed.
Now the weather has been kind in allowing us to complete this heavy work with little disruption but that means rainfall has been in short supply so that ground moisture levels are struggling in some areas.
The low overnight temperatures for most of the last month mean growth has been a little slower than expected and seed germination is taking that little bit longer, but keep the seed moist and it will come.
The flip side of those low temperatures is that moisture loss is reduced so there is still time to prevent soils drying out fully before the heat of summer and as many learned last year its much easier to maintain moisture then to try to wet a soil once its dry.
There is advice on my website about watering the lawn.
As the soils warm up and consistent growth kicks in then regular mowing is essential to keeping your lawn in good condition, mowing encourages the lawn to naturally thicken, so:-
I am taking a well-earned short holiday before we start our Early Summer Lawn Treatments in Chichester in a weeks’ time.
As always, if you have any questions or need help with your lawn.
