Spring Lawn Care
As the daylight hours increase and the winter rains hopefully become a memory, the whole garden is awakening. Spring bulbs such as Snowdrops are some of the first to flower.
The winter rains and snow have drained nutrient from the soil. Many lawns are looking pale and, if the lawn has been used during the winter months, possibly rather bare.
Below are some simple projects that will enhance your garden through Early Spring.
Your Greener Gardens lawncare programme will ensure your lawn is ready to flourish, as the weather warms up, with a gentle release of all the nutrients it requires throughout spring. Our moss control will also help control any moss, which may have developed during the winter months.
If bare patches are an issue, we can help with the introduction of new grass species through a programme of over seeding.
We can also help your lawn with aeration, which will aid drainage and root development, all essential for a green healthy lawn.
If you haven’t already it is time to complete your first lawn cut, we suggest that you raise the cutter for the few cuts and then cut no more than 1/3rd off in any one cut. It’s not too late to replace the mower blade or get it sharpened, all crucial for a healthy cut.
If you have a petrol mower, don’t use fuel left over from last year. Stale fuel accounts for many starting problems at any time of the year.
Correct mowing will make the difference between a “so-so” lawn and a great one. There are a few simple steps when mowing that make a big difference in your lawns appearance whatever time of year:
A light topping of the grass is always better than a severe “hacking”
Regular cutting will make it more enjoyable for you and frequent cutting requires less effort.
Keep cutting the grass regularly and trimming the edges for that smart professional look.
Hard surfaces clean up
It's not to late to clean up your drive and patio from Algae, Moss and weeds.
Our biocide will kill mould and other growths within typically 2-4 days, and the secondary detergent action will help to gently clean the treated surface in the following weeks and months without the need for pressure washing.
Our biocide is:
- 100 % Non-Abrasive: There is no need for any aggressive or damaging application methods such as high-pressure water-blasting or steam cleaning.
- Suitable for all exterior hard surfaces, including delicate surfaces such as plaster, rendering, mortar and glass.
- Long-Lasting: small and diminishing residues will protect against re-growth. Typically this protection will be for 6-9 months after the first application, and 8-12 months after subsequent applications.
