When should you be fertilizing your lawn?
Spring is the perfect time to get out outside and dust off those winter cobwebs and plan your new garden in time for summer and this often means lawn maintenance. Hopefully in late winter or the first few days of Spring you have already aerated your lawn to regenerate any soil that has compacted over winter and to allow the sun and moisture to penetrate the roots.
As the temperature regularly starts to reach 18 degrees and above, fertilise your lawn with a slow release mild nitrate fertilizer to ensure it will be looking its best in the months to come. In late Spring once the lawn has started to re grow and after a few some moving you can increase this with a higher concentrate of nitrogen fertilizer to stimulate more growth and have the lawn looking super green and lush. Be sure not to over fertilize, approximately one handful (using gloves or a dispenser to administrate) per square meter and always apply to a moist lawn and then water in immediately after.
