How do I take care of my lawn?
What's causing the yellow spots in my lawn?
Yellow spots appear for various reasons: poor soil cultivation, drought, too much dead organic matter (matting), or poor aeration. Some commons causes of yellow spots are: The lawn lacks nutrients; The pH value of the lawn is not right, which means that nutrients are not properly absorbed by the soil; Over-fertilisation: causes the grass to burn and turn yellow; Pests such as grubs and blackheads that attack the roots of the grass.
There is moss growing in my lawn: how do I get rid of it?
A good way to get rid of moss is to scarify. Use our Scarifying Kit Standard: it includes everything you need to prepare, scarify, and repair your lawn. Before scarifying, sprinkle Iron Plus 2-in-1 fertiliser after mowing. This makes the grass more robust and resistant to the scarifying process that can stress your lawn. After scarifying, spread more fertiliser to help your lawn recover. Then re-sow the entire lawn with fresh lawn seed (all included), and finally sprinkle lime on the lawn to counteract the acidification of the soil. Wait at least three weeks before spreading lime after fertilising.
Fungi in the lawn: What can I do about it?
Most fungal diseases can be prevented by improving the drainage of your soil. Regularly aerating the lawn and the correct fertiliser will combat most fungal lawn infections. A common fungal disease is Reddish-Thread, which can be recognised by the reddish-brown glow of the affected parts of the lawn. If you look closely, you can see the fungal threads. Red-thread can be prevented by fertilising the lawn with a nitrogen fertiliser. Use Spring Boost in the spring, along with Easy Mow fertiliser in the summer.
I fear I have grubs or blackheads in my lawn, how can I check, and what can I do about it?
Grubs and earthworms eat the roots of the grass and cause unsightly spots to appear in the lawn. Sometimes you can see the grass plant lying “loose” on the lawn. By cutting off a piece of the turf and looking underneath, you can see the larvae. The advice is to first fight the larvae, possibly by using nematodes, then to roll and scarify the lawn. Finally, fertilise and overseed the lawn.
How can I control clover in my lawn?
Clover is a sign of moisture and a lack of nitrogen. Therefore, fertilise three to four times a year with a fertiliser specially designed for that season. It is also best to water in the early morning and not too often; once a week is enough if it does not rain that week. Clover can withstand mowing, but it is still important to mow frequently so that you stimulate the growth of the grass. If you scarify in the spring or autumn, you can pull out the clover. The roots will then be more exposed. Also make sure you have a dense lawn by resowing the entire lawn every year, so weeds have less of a chance!
