It’s cold outside....

Well, after a mild start the year, Winter has returned!

If your lawn is covered in snow or frost, its best to keep off it as this may damage the grass blades, leaving patches until the spring when it starts to grow again. You may have seen in the past the footprints from people delivering items and cutting across the lawn.

When the cold snap has gone, collect any dead leaves that have fallen on the lawn. If they are left, they can weaken the grass leading to bare patches and the spread of pests and disease. Rake up or blow the leaves into heaps ready for composting.

If worm casts are an issue they are best left to dry and then dispersed using a stiff brush or besom broom to avoid your lawn becoming covered in muddy dead spots, which allow weeds to encroach. Try to spread the worm casts rather than smear them.

Don’t forget to get the mower serviced and ensure to check that the blades are sharp.
