Summer can be harsh on lawns with general wear and tear, heatwave and sometimes drought conditions.
Early Autumn is a great time to repair the damages caused by the ravages of Summer and prepare your Lawn using the following tips to help get through Winter in readiness for Spring.
- Remove weeds. They will take over when grass grows slower in the cooler months.
- De-thatch with a garden rake to remove build-up of dead grass, especially in buffalo, kikuyu and couch lawns.
- Aerate the lawn with a garden fork, aerating spike shoes, or you can hire a coring machine suitable for home gardens.
- Worn and bare areas should be scraped or roughed-up then over-sown with lawn seed matching or similar to your existing grass type. Dust with top soil and apply a seaweed solution weekly for 1 month.
- Mow higher by 2 notches to allow more light on more leaf for better photosynthesis and less room for weeds.
- Top dress if required with a suitable soil mix, then water entire lawn area to settle the topdressing.
- Fertilise with ‘All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser’.
- Water less frequently and in the morning now, to lessen potential fungal problems.
