Spring Lawn Care & Garden Tips.

 

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 winter moss control and conditioner will help control any moss, which may have developed during the winter months and green up the lawn.

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 and scarification, all essential for a green healthy lawn.

Don’t forget to ask us about the benefits of Aeration, Scarification and Over Seeding.

1. Mowing Tips

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.

Our product is:

  • Suitable for all exterior hard surfaces, including delicate surfaces such as plaster, rendering, mortar and glass.
