Spring

 

Our spring treatment programme is designed to lift your lawn out of its winter slump, providing a deep green colour and restoring nutrients in time for the peak grass growing conditions during March and April.

 

The application of a high nitrogen granular lawn feed will stimulate a balanced growth, responding quickly to the cooler conditions at this time of year and providing the early season nutrients to enhance the lawn’s appearance.

Summer

 

Our summer treatment programme will maintain the health and colour of your lawn as soil and air temperatures rise. A granular coated, drought resistant fertiliser feed is applied, protecting the lawn against scorching as it can only be broken down by the moisture and bacteria in the soil, which is ideal for warmer months.

 

While other seasonal fertilisers take instant action, this feed can continue to be released up to 10 weeks due to its partially coated surface. If there is no rainfall or significant moisture during this period, we would advise you to water your lawn in the early mornings or evenings in order for the nutrients to penetrate the root system.

 

With a formula that contains nitrogen for growth and colour, phosphorus to aid root development and potassium and macro-nutrients to ensure overall plant health, this treatment programme will ensure a deep green, thick lawn during the hotter summer months.

Autumn

 

Following a warm summer period, our autumn treatment will be the last feed of the year to help prepare your lawn for the colder temperatures during the winter months. During this autumn period, a combination of slow grass growth and a mild, wet climate will increase the likelihood of moss in lawns, particularly in shady and high moisture areas.

 

Our liquid-based fertiliser contains the correct balance of nutrients to maintain a deep colour and healthy root structure whilst making it less vulnerable to disease and damage. An iron sulphate application will dehydrate and blacken the moss before stimulating chlorophyll activity for a stronger, more robust lawn that can withstand the unpredictable conditions of winter. The breaking down of the moss plant structure will also make removing surface thatch easier during scarification and other mechanical services, maximising your lawn’s ability to overcome winter in a healthier and stronger condition.

Winter

 

As the cold weather conditions become more severe, Supalawns will continue to provide ongoing moss treatment to aid the lawn’s transition from winter into new spring growth. A second dose of the liquid-based micronutrient feed will support the development of chlorophyll in order to increase soil fertility and strengthen grass roots whilst minimising the risk of moss and fungal disease.

 

During the colder and shorter days of winter, your lawn may be susceptible to high levels of shade and moisture, weak grass, poor drainage or muddy areas, which can increase the risk of disease outbreak. Supalawn’s disease management plan will aim to reduce this risk through continued aeration and scarification in order to alleviate soil compaction and allow the free circulation of essential nutrients for a healthier, more oxygenated lawn during these harsh conditions.
