Lawn Care in Autumn/Winter

  Now is the time to plan for new lawns or repair of old ones during March and April when the soil is still warm and grass seed will germinate in as little as 5 days. Prepare the ground by firming it with a roller of your feet. Sowing seed on a soft surface will lead to an uneven surface when rainfall has forced it down.

 The alternative to using seed is to purchase turf and, looked after, will establish  quickly. The use of a special fertiliser at planting time will pay dividends. Remember when mowing in Autumn and winter to keep the blades reasonably high. 

 Neutrog's 'Sudden Impact for Lawns' is an excellent product for re-juvenating lawns. As soon as weed seedlings appear use  a lawn weeder before they get too big.
