Looking after your lawn and general lawn care doesn’t have to be a time-consuming task.
Every now and again a quick bit of TLC will give your grass the facelift it needs to keep it looking fresh and not tired and worn out. It can take as little as 15 minutes! (If your lawn is huge, well maybe a bit longer!)
If in doubt, spread it out! Fertilising your lawn is a quick and easy way to help your lawn thrive. In as little as 15-minutes you can spread it across your lawn and turn on the irrigation/sprinkler or hose it in. For 15-minutes work, your lawn will get lasting results for up to 12 weeks.
In the warmer months a loss of colour can be quickly addressed with a fertilise and some additional watering. But if it’s the cooler months of the year where the grass has naturally slowed photosynthesis and is in a certain level of dormancy, then discolouration is completely normal. If you want to improve this appearance though, a mini facelift so to speak, you can apply a product called ColourGuard. ColourGuard will be absorbed into the leaf as a natural pigment that will improve your lawns winter colour and help to protect it from winter frost as well.
Dehydrated Dry or Brown Lawn
It’s amazing how well your grass will recover after a good deep soaking. If you are lucky enough the rain will come just when your lawn needs it, but if it doesn’t, and water restrictions permit, give your lawn the water it is craving. Doing this deeply and less frequently will lead to a more drought tolerant lawn saving you time and water.
If you have some weeds occurring in your lawn, best thing to do is act straight away before it gets out of control. A quick 15-minute walk around every couple of weeks to remove any weeds that you see by hand, will make all the difference and save you hours of spraying and promoting lawn growth to help it repair.
