With spring just around the corner, it’s a great time to start thinking about lawn care. Moving from the cold winter months into spring brings its own set of challenges, like dealing with frost damage, thatch build-up, and keeping pests at bay. But don’t worry, with a little bit of effort and the right approach, you can get your lawn looking healthy and vibrant.

 

This guide is here to share some friendly advice on how to get your lawn spring-ready, helping it to grow beautifully and become a real highlight of your garden.

Spring Preparation

The thaw of winter uncovers the underlying condition of your lawn, often revealing the need for attention and repair.

Early spring is the time to assess for damage such as bare patches, thatch buildup, or signs of pest and disease.

Initial steps should include clearing debris and lightly raking to remove dead grass and aerate the soil.

LawnDoc offers tailored consultations for soil treatments, including top dressing to address particular soil deficiencies and advising on lawn rolling to smooth out uneven areas, guaranteeing a level surface for the upcoming growing season.

Mowing Techniques

Proper mowing is essential as the growing season begins.

Start with a higher cut, gradually lowering the mower’s height to encourage dense, healthy growth. It’s important to use sharp blades for a clean cut, reducing stress and the risk of disease in your grass.

Alternating mowing patterns with each cut can help prevent soil compaction and promote more uniform grass growth, contributing to the overall health and appearance of your lawn.

Watering Best Practices

Effective watering is key not only to keeping the lawn green but also to encouraging the development of deep roots.

Deep, infrequent watering proves more effective than shallow, frequent watering, as it encourages roots to penetrate deeper into the soil.

Watering in the morning is recommended to minimise evaporation and reduce the risk of diseases.

As temperatures increase, consider using wetting agents to enhance the soil’s moisture retention, a vital measure for maintaining your lawn’s health through the drier months.

How to Get the Best from Your Lawn

Nutrition is essential for a healthy lawn. Regularly applying the correct fertilisers ensures a soil rich in nutrients.

Overseeding improves the density and visual appeal of the lawn, whilst also helping to suppress weeds. Furthermore, aeration is recommended to enhance the movement of air, water, and nutrients to the roots, with early spring being the perfect time for this process.

LawnDoc’s professional scarification services are aimed at effectively removing thatch, thus improving light and air access to the grass roots and encouraging a healthier lawn ecosystem.

Preparing your lawn for spring is key for a lush, attractive garden. With the right approach to mowing, watering, and general upkeep, you can keep your lawn looking healthy and vibrant.
