Grass Maintenance - Everything You Need To Know

Some people have been looking after their lawns for many years, so much so, that they know their onions, potatoes and carrots when it comes to grass maintenance

But, if this doesn’t sound like you, yet you love the thought of having a stunning ocean of green in your front or back garden, then there are a fair few things that you can do to give it a helping hand. 

You see, the thing about grass maintenance is that the needs of your lawn change, depending on the time of year. Seasonal care is vital. For example, your grass may need a lot more attention from the mower in the spring and summer months, but this isn’t to say that there’s not plenty you can do with regard to grass maintenance in the colder months, too. 

For example, in order to prepare your grass for Spring, you should regularly clear debris from the lawn and remove thatch, weeds and moss in the winter months. Giving it the occasional mow to keep it nice and tidy, can help. Also, protecting lawns from the damaging effects of frost and heavy rain and regular weed control are some good grass maintenance tips at this time of year. 

Other tips for grass maintenance might include the following: 

  • Over-seeding
  • Aeration 
  • Scarification
  • Seasonal and cultural lawn treatments 

 

Maintain your grass throughout the year

Without doubt, grass maintenance needs to be practiced throughout the year and consistency is key. After all, why spend all that time and effort on grass maintenance in the warmer months, if you’re just going to pretend your lawn doesn’t exist when it gets that bit colder? 

Cultural treatments are the most effective methods to reduce weeds and moss, while allowing more nutrients to get into your grass, whereas seasonal treatments will bring the very best results when used at exactly the right time of year. 

If grass maintenance in the winter, or indeed throughout the year, doesn’t sound like something you can manage confidently, then that’s the time when to contact a grass maintenance specialist. 

A good grass maintenance specialist will firstly visit your garden, to take a look at your lawn and assess exactly what it needs to have it looking in the very best condition. Once they’ve considered what’s required, they will be able to formulate a plan to get you the very best looking patch of green around – and they might even give you a few top tips for everyday garden maintenance too!

A good lawn care program will help to improve the health of your soil and grass as quickly as possible.
