Overseeding your lawn - that is, adding new grass seed every once in a while - is important if you want thick, healthy grass.
Overseeding means adding new seeds to your lawn in order to boost the thickness of the grass.
It's a good idea to do this occasionally - keeping your grass thick and healthy will make it more difficult for weeds, moss and other growths to take over your lawn. Densely-grassed lawns are also more resistant to drought.
Spring has finally sprung! After winter, spring is a time of rapid growth for your lawn. The additional water and higher temperatures mean you will need to take extra steps to help your lawn make the most of these conditions and heal itself after the winter.
But getting your lawn ready for spring doesn't have to be a hassle! Our specialist spring lawn treatment will make sure your lawn receives all the nutrients it needs to looks its best for the months ahead.
Here are some basic tips to help you prepare your lawn for springtime...
Spring is the perfect time for encouraging new growth to ensure your lawn retains its texture and health. By planting more seeds than usual, grass will grow back thicker and improve the overall 'vigour' of your lawn. This is also perfect for repairing a lawn that has flooded as a result of the extreme weather that has hit the UK recently.
We recommend overseeding your lawn every three years in the springtime to keep your grass looking its best. Remember: wait until temperatures get a little bit milder! Germination (seeds beginning to grow) happens at around 8 °C, so you want to wait until the ground is warm enough to allow the seeds to sprout.
Spring Moss Treatment
Wet weather can cause moss to appear on damp and poorly-drained lawns. Spring brings rapid growth for grasses, and it's an ideal time to address any moss problems that may have arisen in your garden. After the wettest February on record according to the Met Office, a spring lawn treatment is essential if you want to get your lawn ready for spring and combat potential moss issues. A specialised moss treatment will help your lawn's vigour and encourage healthy grass growth during those April showers.
Feeding Your Lawn for Spring
A long, wet winter may give lawns the moisture to grow, but food is also essential for healthy growth and sustaining your lawn's health. Use a specialist fertiliser to make sure your lawn has ample nutrients to grow. A spring lawn treatment will give you a greener and healthier lawn for the upcoming warmer months and will provide the nutrients your lawn needs to keep growing throughout the season.
Spring Weed Control
Unfortunately, it's not just grass that grows in spring. The weather at this time of year may encourage common weeds such as dandelions, buttercups and daisies, especially if your lawn is not as strong as it could be. If you're looking to reduce the appearance of these spring weeds, our spring lawn treatments include liquid herbicides to reduce and control common weeds. Not only do we tackle visible weeds, our weed control service can also tackle conditions that promote weed growth, eliminating the need for more expensive treatments later.
