Spring cure for the lawn
After saying goodbye to winter frosts, it’s time for spring lawn work. It is a very common mistake to “wear out” your lawn with a weeder as soon as it begins to grow. Better give it a little time and start by regularly cutting it to around 4 cm in height. And only after two or three regular mowing sessions should you use an aerating machine – and only if it is required due to heavy edging. In addition, spring is the best time to give the lawn a few weeks’ worth of nutrients with a long-term fertiliser.
What should be considered for a summer lawn?
The lawn should not be mown too short but regularly: This is a general rule of thumb for mowing lawns in spring and summer. If you use a lawn mower you are much more likely to have a thick and healthy lawn. After spring fertilisation, the next nutrient delivery should be around mid-June. Don’t forget to water too – especially if you have a long dry spell in midsummer. Don’t water every day, but water thoroughly and systematically.
Fertilise your lawn in the autumn season? Of course!
Fertilise your lawn with a potassium-rich autumn fertiliser to give it a preventative boost during the cold season. You can fertilise heavily overgrown areas or even loosen them if necessary. You can reseed the gaps in your lawn until October. Mow the lawn to a height of 3-4 cm and carefully pick up any grass residue.
