It’s been a mixed bag this August, as the effects of the Saharan blowtorch heatwave followed by torrential downpour have meant that lawn care in Kings Lynn and other parts of the country has become increasingly vital.
So many lawns in England have turned a rather dead looking shade of yellowy-brown and, for many people, it has been virtually impossible to prevent the heat from doing its worst. While the rain may have helped this a bit, it’s often not enough to course-correct your lawn.
Take care to have the right lawn care
Lawn care in Norfolk is different from most other parts of the country. It’s even harder to keep lawns healthy in this part of Eastern England and here’s why.
The soil is sandier than other parts of the UK and sand is definitely not your lawn’s best friend, because it makes the soil dry out quicker. In fact, it’s a bit like Kryptonite to Superman, except less green.
Dry soil in the sizzling hot August we’ve just had has meant a double whammy of problems, when it comes to keeping your lawn looking healthy. So, when you’re proud of your glimmering green back yard, or love that the neighbours comment on the condition of your front lawn, you’ll want to do the very most you can to keep it looking that way. And we can help.
Keep your lawn healthy
Lawn care in Kings Lynn, during the warmer weather, should carry on into the late summer. As long as the grass is still growing, it needs the right levels of TLC (or as we like to call it, JLC…) to stop the soil from drying out and making further growth pretty non-existent.
While Spring is the best time to start properly taking good care of your lawn, as long as it’s still got a bit of life in it, top tips to keep your lawn looking the best it can, even now, include the following:
- Mowing regularly, but not too low
- Regular watering first thing in the morning or last thing at night
- Adding lawn feed or fertilisers
- Killing moss and weeds
- Scarifying, aerating and overseeding
There are also some professional lawn care treatments which can help to bring your glimmering green carpet back to life and keep your lawn looking healthy in the summer.
