Sir Walter: Autumn Lawn Care
‘...as a goal, if your lawn is in peak condition by Easter, it will generally perform better in winter.’
During autumn, the weather can fluctuate from being still rather warm and dry, to wet and cool. The soil temperature begins to drop and lawns are often exposed to a lot of stress... apart from the gradual slow down that is taking place in the grass plant as winter approaches, there are often the ravages of insect and disease to be repaired.
Autumn is a very important season in the lawn care calendar... it is the last chance to get the lawn back into peak condition before the cold winter months ahead... as a goal, if your lawn is in peak condition by Easter, it will generally perform better in winter... so now is the time to get out there and get your lawn into shape. The lawn rejuvenation process should include: aerating; fertilising; weed control; top dressing; mowing; and watering.
The value of aeration should never be underestimated... aerating will help improve the flow of air, water and fertiliser to your turf grass area. This is turn, will help to rejuvenate your grass by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating healthier turf grass.
The average householder should be able to handle most of the abovementioned functions. However, you may wish to seek the help of a turf care expert for your lawn rejuvenation requirements... call Windsor Turf and we will put you into contact with a lawn care expert in your area.
