Autumn & Winter Care

Autumn & Winter are times when not much attention is given to your lawn, but while you're snuggled up in front of the fire, your poor lawn is out there in the wind and rain. 

Here are a few things you can do to look after your lawn during these seasons:

  • Mowing through Winter is important in order to keep the lawn clean & healthy
  • Sharp blades are essential, this ensures a clean cut and helps to minimise fungal infection
  • Catch clippings and mow when dry - never cut too short
  • Rake up fallen leaves to minimise shading, if leaf litter is left on the lawn the underlying grass will become weak giving rise to thinning of desired species
  • Ensure your irrigation systems are turned off.  It is a good idea to have your irrigation system serviced prior to next season
  • Grass browning off in patches is a common sight at this time of year, this could be disease breakouts.  Fungal sprays, curative and prevention are always good practice to keep the grass healthy
