Feeding

WHY WE FEED

PREPARATION IS KEY

If you want your lawn to look lush, green and well cared for, preparation is essential. Lawn fertiliser is a good way of ensuring that the grass is fed with the correct nutrients for maximum grass growth without encouraging unwanted weeds. There are many different types of fertiliser, so it is important to choose one that is suited to your needs.

START IN MID-SPRING AND CONTINUE APPLYING FEED EVERY SIX – EIGHT WEEKS UNTIL AUTUMN.

AS SOON AS THE GROUND WARMS UP AND THE LAWN STARTS TO GROW, FEEDING CAN BEGIN. USUALLY MARCH TO SEPTEMBER

TYPES OF FEED

GRANULAR FERTILISER

Granular fertilizer consists of dry granules that slowly sink into the soil and gradually dissolve. They are good for large areas but can be washed away after heavy rainfall or digging animals.

FAST-RELEASE FERTILISER

Fast-release fertilizer does exactly that, it releases nutrients into the grass quickly. This is a good option if your lawn has been neglected for a long period of time. We are always careful to not overdo it, as a high concentration of this fertiliser could harm your plants.

SYNTHETIC FERTILISER
These fertilisers contain additional substances, such as sand and sawdust, which is perfect for targeting weeds.

WHEN TO FEED?

A good rule of “green” thumb is to apply the first feed in mid-spring, when the soil temperature reaches 12c. This is when the leaves begin to show on the trees, flowers start blooming and most importantly, the grass begins to grow. The next time you should feed your lawn is one month later in May. Continue applying the feed every six to eight weeks until the autumn.

In the autumn, it is vital to continue to apply regular feeds at a slower rate as the grass continues to grow. It is detrimental to neglect these applications for they are essential for a healthy lawn next spring. Continue until the first frosts but don’t go beyond the growing period.

OUR LAWN FEEDING METHOD

We provide fertilizer that contains weed and moss killers. We have invested in the latest kit including a fertiliser spreader that way we can disperse the lawn feed evenly to ensure a thick, even and healthy lawn coverage.
