Lawn Care in Autumn/Winter

As soon as the Autumn rains arrive any open areas in lawns will quickly be filled with seedling weeds. A quick spray with a selective lawn weederwill get rid of them before they become established. Then those bare patches should be re-seeded as soon as possible while the soil is still warm. The use of Lawn Starter fertiliser at the rime of seed sowing really pays dividends.

 The same applies where new lawns are being established either with seed or rolling out turf. Never use ordinary lawn fertiliser as it may well damage the roots og developing new lawns.

When mowing try not to "scalp" the lawn as the green leaves feed the plant as it grows.
