Autumn Lawn Care

Autumn is one of the most important seasons of the year for lawn care. After a warm summer prepared your lawn for the colder spell ahead can help to keep your lawn healthy through until past spring next year.

Below are some useful tips to maintain your lawns healthy green colour and strength to handle the cold winter weather ahead.

Fork compacted areas

Areas of the lawn that gets frequently over the summer period will become compact and need forking to break up soil helping with the drainage of your lawn when the typical British weather gives us rain. Only dig your fork down to about four to six inches to get enough aeration and drainage.

Autumn is a great time to aerate your lawn as the grass continues to grow the weather is the perfect temperature and conditions.

Autumn Lawn Feed

Summer lawn feeds are soft and easily damaged by frost so we only recommend using autumn lawn feed.

Autumn feed that’s low in nitrogen and high in potash to strengthen your grass, toughening your lawn ready for the winter months.

Sweep up Autumn Leaves

Using a rake or a leaf blower, remove any leaves and other debris that may have fallen onto your lawn. Leaving this debris on your lawn will rot the top of your grass and damage your lawn.

Adjust Your Mower Height

As the weather starts to get colder lawns rate of growth will decrease. Raising the height that your mower cuts your grass and keeping your mower blades sharp will help to keep your lawn quality of care.

We love our new patio area Nathan transformed a garden that was never used in to a beautiful Bespoke space that we will be able to enjoy all year round. Nathan & his team were very hard working always polite. We had no plan of what we wanted & left Nathan to create a space for us, He didn't disappoint. It took 10 days of extremely hard work but we love the end result. We highly recommend Nathan Brammer Bespoke Landscaping.
