LAWN CARE IN APRIL Tips courtesy of our friends at ProLawn Care Mowing Frequency: Mow at least once a week now; make sure mower has been serviced & replaced or sharpened. When: It’s best done on a dry day. If your patio is dry, the chances are your lawn will be dry enough to mow (it’s a sign that the air is drying the lawn) Height: Not shorter than 1 “ (2.5 cm). Make sure the blade is sharp Fertiliser – Organic This is the time to feed the lawn after most nutrients will have been washed through during the wet winter months. An organic based fertiliser feeds the soil as well as the grass to give you the best lawn possible. Weed Control s Once the weeds and grass are actively growing, a selective herbicide to kill broad leaved weeds such as dandelions, daisies and clover within the grass can be applied. Patio/Drive Weed Treatment Use a spray weed killer which will kill weeds and keep them weed free for several months. Lawn fact: “58 m 2 of lawn gives enough oxygen for one person for a day”
