Spring Lawn Treatments, Lawn Care and Lawn Rennovation in West Sussex, Bognor Regis, Tangmere, Chichester - Lawn Care Tips and advice
On Monday I started my Spring treatment programme, this is timed to work with the rising air and soil temperatures so the grass can thrive from the start of the season.
We also tackle weeds that are also starting to show as the weather improves and if there is lingering moss we will deal with that as well.
If your treating your own grass take care to follow the label instructions on the products you use. Its better to spend a few extra pounds on good product designed for the season and tools to apply it then much more on repairing damage caused by two much or too little put down at the wrong time.
The photo at the top is a customers lawn in Tangmere West Sussex, thats the back lawn, the front is below. They both look great and thats before i apply the spring tonic and the reason is the treatment we applied in the autumn which helps the grass over winter.
At the moment some lawns are still too wet to mow, but if you get the chance to cut be gentle at first and never cut more than 1/3 of the blade, your lawn will thank you all year if you don"t cut it short in spring.
Tomorrow, if the conditions are right, we will start some spring scarification work, this is when we use our machines to remove thatch and moss from the turf, Its an invasive process so the lawn can look a little jaded afterwards but we also apply treatments which, along with the warming conditons, means recovery will be quicker. This is me in Walberton West Sussex this morning putting down feed.
We are tracking the rise in soil temperatures as its critical to some of our treatments particularly our "ultimate moss control" but also for laying seed and lawn renovation. Remember if you are trying to fill any bare patchs that have developed over winter you will get better results if you sprinkle a little top soil/dressing on the seed, just enough to cover not to smother and don't let it dry out.
Remember grass seed does not last forever so if you have a box of it thats been sitting in the shed for a year don't be surprised if your results ane not great if you use it.
If you use good seed and a little care you will get great results without spending a fortune in new turf or "miracle" patch repair kits.
If you woukd like your non franchise lawncare expert to help give me a call.
