Lawn Care Through the Seasons

There is not a lot to do to the lawn during this period as the grass growth is slowed right down, because of the cold conditions. Avoid walking on frosted or waterlogged grass though.

Winter is a great time of year to get those hedges trimmed and tidied.


Mot much do in February either, but it may be a good time to mulch flower beds and shrubberies. It’s good to get this job out of the way before the growing season starts.


This is the time to get the lawn mower out of hibernation and give your lawn the first cut of the season. Don’t be too severe with your first clip, set the mower high and just remove the top.

The smell of freshly cut grass is the reminder of spring to come and those sunny warm days.


Once spring comes along you will need to mow the lawn at least once a week. This is when you can gradually reduce the height of the cut.
If you want a thicker greener lawn, you can feed it with a nitrogen-based fertiliser, or if you just want to get rid of weeds, you can use a weed and feed.


Mowing may increase to twice a week depending on weather conditions. You can apply another nitrogen rich lawn feed to keep the lawn luscious and green.
If the weather turns hot and dry keep the cutting height up and use a sprinkler early morning or in the evening to keep the lawn healthy.


Mow once a week and feed with autumn fertiliser. You should also spike the lawn to relieve compaction and introduce oxygen.

September Onwards

Remove any leaves as they fall.

Mow the grass until temperatures drop and you can no longer do so.

It may be time to put that mower away again, perhaps a service on the lawn mower would be good a good idea, so when the warmer days come, it will be one less thing to think about.
