Spring season

Spring, the best season to grow grass

We feel different when spring is in the air. Your drab and neglected garden bursts into life, and – with that – our mood lifts.

Spring is an excellent season for re-sowing and growing your grass. Your lawn may look a little sparse after the winter, so use the springtime to overseed – improving the density of your grass.

Winter lawns are nothing to write home about, but springtime is the perfect season to fertilise, aerate, and scarify so that you can enjoy a beautiful lawn for the rest of the year.

These are our 4 top tips to perform throughout the spring:

* Kill that moss!

It sounds drastic, but moss is a natural enemy to a healthy lawn. Moss loves cold and wet conditions, so it can really take hold over the winter. Moss suffocates the roots of your grass, so the spring is a great time to think about killing it off. You might think about scarifying (basically scratching out the moss from between the grass plants) and fertilising your soil for the best results. Or you could just lay down a moss killer. But don’t leave it – it will destroy a once-healthy lawn over time.

* Overseeding

All lawns need a little extra TLC after the winter. Chances are, your springtime lawn has become a little patchy, with dead spots and yellow areas that make your lawn look tired and unloved. Overseeding is an essential springtime task – just sprinkle grass seed over your existing lawn, focusing particularly on the bald or dying spots – and you’ll see fresh new growth within a couple of weeks.

* Fertilising

Some people believe that a healthy lawn can get everything it needs from the sun, rain, and the soil. Unfortunately, your soil’s nutrients become depleted over time, and eventually, an unfertilised lawn will look tired, yellow, and patchy. Treat fertilising as one of your essential springtime tasks. Fertilising enriches the soil and brings fresh vitality to the colour, texture, and density of your lawn.

* Scarifying

Scarification is a stressful process for your lawn (it’s not called love-i-cation, after all). When you scarify, you scratch away the moss and thatch layer surrounding your grass plants to improve oxygen penetration at the roots. However, as the name suggests, this process can stress your lawn and make it look temporarily worse – but not for long. Use MOOWY’s moss killer, fertilisers, and seed mixes to reignite the beauty of your lawn within a couple of weeks.

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.

Why does my lawn need lime?

Most soils become acid from the natural breakdown of organic matter. Lime restores the acidity level (pH) of overly acid soil. When the pH is right, the grass absorbs nutrients better. Lime, therefore, ensures that your soil absorbs fertilisers better.

When and how often should I spread lime?

Lime binds to nitrogen. If you spread lime and fertiliser too closely together, they bind to each other, and you lose the effect of both. Leave at least three weeks between liming and fertilising.
