Lawns are very much like most things in life, they look good if you know how to treat them right and give them the time, care and attention that they need. 

A lush, thick lawn bursting with green blades of grass requires a properly-timed and balanced diet in order for it to look good, kind of like us humans. Without a healthy, balanced diet and proper care, we won't look the best and the same goes for your lawn. 

So, understanding when and how you feed your lawn with the nutrients that it needs is vital in achieving the picturesque lawn that every homeowner dreams of. Not quite sure when you need to fertilise your lawn? Don't panic, Lawn & Weed Expert are here to help!

spring lawn care list

Spring is finally here, and it's exciting to think about all the different things we'll be able to do when lockdown restrictions start to ease.

Ultimately, there have been more pressing matters on our minds than pulling up weeds, so it's completely understandable if your lawn needs some TLC. Today we're going to look at the important elements of spring lawn care to help you get your garden ready for old friends and new memories.

Lawn Aeration

Lawn aeration is a common lawn care technique that creates small openings in your turf and penetrates the root and thatch layer, allowing essential air and water to make their way down to the grassroots. This task is usually carried out by lawn care professionals using a motorised machine or specialist hand tools; however, using the right tools at the right time of the year, you can aerate your own lawn to make sure it receives the nutrients it needs to survive and prosper.

If you are thinking about whether you should aerate your lawn and when the best time to do it is, you've come to the right place! Read on to learn more about lawn aeration.
