How To Keep Your Lawn Healthy in Colder Weather
As we head into the colder months, it can be much more difficult and time-consuming to keep your lawn healthy and green throughout the winter. There are a variety of things you can do to maintain your beautiful garden, so we’ve put together 4 top tips to help.
Clean Up Debris
As ridiculous as it may sound before you can begin working on your actual lawn, you will need to clean and tidy up the area itself. So, whether that’s removing litter or children’s toys, we’d suggest spending some time cleaning your lawn.
Ensure you continue to rake your lawn to remove any debris including leaves and old grass clippings as if they are left for a long period of time, you may end up with weeds and diseases setting in. This is also a great opportunity to identify if there is any moss and to rake the surface thoroughly if required.
Aerating the Lawn
In the summer, the warmer temperatures often mean your lawn is likely to become compacted, which can be a breeding ground for moss, weeds and drainage problems. To counter this, you should aerate your lawn to provide it with extra air.
It is important to fertilise your lawn during the winter as this will provide it with essential nutrients to see it through the winter months. However, with the weather change, it might be beneficial to use a special winter fertiliser. If you can’t find any, speak to a local expert for more tailored recommendations.
