Healthy fertilised lawn

Lawns 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 balanced diet and careful planning. Like humans, grass can't stay healthy without a bit of work.

So, understanding when and how to feed your lawn (and what nutrients it needs) is vital if you want to achieve the picturesque lawn that every homeowner dreams of. Not quite sure when to fertilise your lawn? Don't panic - Lawn & Weed Expert is 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. For most of us, seeing family or friends in our gardens is top of our post-lockdown activity lists, and with warmer weather on the way, it really will be a treat. 

That being said, there are a lot of wild gardens that haven't been cared for during the lockdown. 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.


how to get rid of leatherjackets

If you've got a leatherjacket infestation in your lawn, you might be looking for a quick and efficient way to get rid of them. Left untreated, leatherjackets will chew through your grassroots and cause large clumps of grass to die back. You can sometimes spot leatherjackets in your soil while digging up your borders to plant flowers, but the most common sign of leatherjackets is birds pecking at your lawn. If you think you might have leatherjackets, you should look at getting rid of them straight away!
