Spring has sprung…it’s time to get mowing!

Temperatures are finally starting to rise, the days are getting longer and barbecue season is on its way! Now is the time to get your garden ready for the sunny days ahead. The first job to tackle is the lawn which is most likely looking a little worse for wear after a long winter. Follow our step-by-step guide to spruce up your grass for summer.

Rake

Spring clean your lawn by lightly raking away the winter debris. This will help to clear the moss and allow more light and water to reach the roots of the grass. If you have any large areas of moss and weeds, use a product like Miracle-Gro Evergreen Complete 4 in 1 to clear it.

Areate

After doing this, your lawn needs a helping hand to avoid compacting down and to help water reach the deeper roots. This can be done with aeration which involves gently puncturing the surface of the soil with a garden fork to aid draining.

Mow

Choose a dry day for the first cut of the year. It’s important to keep the mower blades on the high side. A light trim will help to encourage strong root growth which makes the grass a lot healthier and more resilient. Don’t overdo it – twice a month should be enough.

Reseed

If you notice any bald patches, you will need to reseed these areas. Simply rake over the area, apply lawn seed and then give it another gentle rake with some topdressing before stamping in gently. Make sure you keep well-watered.

Feed

May is a good month to add a spring feed to your lawn to increase the productivity of your grass and also discourage pesky weeds and moss. A good feed will help your grass to grow greener and thicker. Always apply fertiliser and patch repair products soon after mowing the grass so they’ve got maximum time to get to work before the next cut.
