Seasonal Checklist

Use our Seasonal Checklist to keep your garden and grass at it's best from Spring through to Winter.

Spring

MARCH

Grass is gently coming back to life. Now is a good time to gently rake the grass to spot dead areas that need attention.

Begin cutting if grass is fully growing. Remember to increase your height of cut for the first few mows.

Winter can leave soil compacted so it can be a good idea to aerate at this time to improve the soil for the growing months ahead.

Apply a spring/summer fertiliser.

APRIL/MAY

Conduct your spring renovation now if warm and grass is growing well. Tackle weeds and overseed bare patches.

Apply spring/summer fertiliser if you haven’t already.

Summer

JUNE

Summer mowing should be underway. Once or twice a week if possible.

Apply fertiliser if you haven’t already.

Depending on the weather it might be time to consider irrigation if you want to maintain a green lawn through the summer.

JULY

Continue to water in hot weather. Remember to give it a good soak early in morning or late in evening.

Continue to mow every 7 days. You can leave clippings on the lawn to help maintain ground moisture and the grass will also get nutrients.

AUGUST

Continue to water adequately if weather stays hot

Continue to mow at your desired height, if extremely hot leave grass longer before cutting to help retain moisture.

Autumn

SEPTEMBER

Continue to mow at your desired height.

Apply fertiliser if required.

This is a great time to carry out your autumn renovation. Your lawn will thank you for the repairs.

Tackle weeds at this time of year rather than leave them all to Spring.

OCTOBER

Continue to mow, grass should be cut shorter gradually in preparation for the winter

Apply an autumn/winter fertiliser to replace lost nutrients over the summer and help maintain grass throughout winter

Remove any leaves covering your grass

Aerate lawn to improve drainage.

NOVEMBER

Rake any leaves off the grass. If left like a carpet it will encourage moss and mould and delay new growth in spring.

Winter

DECEMBER - FEBRUARY

Grass is dormant and should have been cut and fed before the snow.

Remember to lift anything off the grass over winter like hoses and garden furniture as it will impair growth come spring.

Try not to walk on the grass if frozen.
