January lawn care tips

As we enter into a brand new year, you might be wondering how you can achieve a green & healthy lawn. Truth be told, January can be a really tough month for your lawn - you can expect freezing temperatures and maybe even snow! The team here at Lawn and Weed Expert have put together some January lawn care tips to keep your lawn thriving.


Frosty lawn grass

SHORT ANSWER: Avoid walking on your lawn when there's frost on the grass. Grass becomes more brittle in cold temperatures, and walking on it may damage your lawn.

Winter is almost upon us, which means that you may well see some frost on your lawn very soon.

A frosted lawn may look very pretty, but it should be admired only from a distance. Walking on your grass at this time of year can do a lot more damage than it would during the warmer months.



If you're trying to care for your lawn in the best way possible, then it's important you know the difference between scarifying, raking and dethatching. Each of these processes contributes to overall lawn health, but it's important you do them at the right time and for the right reasons.

Raking your lawn can help remove surface debris while dethatching and scarifying will tackle the thick mats of thatch that will eventually suffocate your lawn and prevent it from absorbing nutrients. In this blog, we'll show you how and when you should use each process.

Hundreds of years ago, having a lawn at the front of your property was a status symbol (much like having the latest iPhone is today) but not many people know why lawns were so symbolic of status. Was there something special about these lawns that made them so different to ours? Surprisingly not! Let's find out how lawns became a status symbol and why...
