This can be the most important time of the year for lawns. Weak grass will allow weeds and moss to take hold. Healthy grass will limit their development. There is plenty of moisture about and the ground is starting to warm up. The grass plant responds by growing vigorously and requires the right amount and mix of nutrients to encourage the grass to take advantage of the growing conditions and enable it to grow and develop including:
Application of specialist fertiliser
Treatment and removal of moss and weeds, including daisies, clover & dandelions
The long term development of a greener, vibrant, healthy lawn
Early Summer Lawn Care Treatment
Application of slow release, non-scorch fertiliser in liquid or granule form to encourage thick healthy growth in the grass. We change the balance of the nutrients in this feed increasing phosphorous and potassium and decreasing the nitrogen content as the demands of the grass plant change. There is sufficient nutrient in the fertiliser to nourish the grass for up to 8 – 12 weeks. Our granule fertilisers are slow release and do not have to be watered in. However if the lawn is dry watering in will produce quicker results. A summer application of a broad spectrum systemic liquid herbicide is used to control both common and some of the more difficult weeds such as speedwell, trefoils and clover.
Late Summer / Early Autumn Treatment
The warm weather combined with damp conditions can make this time of year ideal for lawn diseases to attack the grass. Each time we treat your lawn we check for diseases. Late Summer and early Autumn is the key time to start applying moss control to kill the moss in the lawn. Moss is the biggest problem faced by the majority of lawns. Vibrant Lawn Care will apply another application of our broad spectrum liquid herbicide to control any new weed growth, plus a low nitrogen high potassium and phosphorous fertiliser for root development combined with an initial application of moss control.
Autumn / Winter Treatment
An application of feed containing essential trace elements combined with a very heavy dose of moss control. It is vital that moss spores are controlled and not allowed to develop in your lawn. Heavy moss will be controlled by our moss treatment but as the dead moss plant does not decompose easily the lawn may require scarifying to remove the dead moss and thatch from the lawn to create space to allow grass to regenerate. Over seeding with grass seed may also be required depending on the amount of moss in your lawn. At this visit Vibrant Lawn Care will also check for any insect damage or traces of lawn disease.
From time to time it is recommended that your lawn would benefit from certain other key treatments. We provide you with a regular update on your lawn and only recommend other treatments if they are necessary and essential to the health and appearance of the lawn.
FREE Lawn Survey
Vibrant Lawn Care will survey your lawn and prepare a no contract, lawn treatment programme. We recommend the basic 4 season treatment plan to ensure the control of weeds and moss and encourage healthy grass growth, above ground and below.
We will also discuss any additional work which you, as a customer, may require occasionally. Such as lawn scarifying, lawn aeration, spiking, top dressing, seeding and additional disease control.
