Lawn Care in Spring

All lawns should, by the end of September, be growing fast, except perhaps Kikuyu lawns which have gone very yellow following several winter frosts. They should quickly return to green and will respond to dressings of lawn fertiliser. The major advantage of Kikuyu and Buffalo lawns is the thick growth which suppresses weeds. However where weeds find their way through they should be sprayed out with the relevant lawn spray.

 With summer coming on do not cut too short as this will quickly lead to patchiness. Try to mow at short intervals so that large quantities of dead clippings do not build up and smother the grass.
