This is the month to sow your new lawns. If you’ve been following along with our monthly blog, then last month you would know was ideal for cleaning up and preparing your soil ahead of time, if you have done so, excellent, if not, know it’s not too late, the sooner it’s done, the better. Lawn preparation is essential if you want a healthy green lawn for the warmer months, so don’t skip it. Remove any weeds and debris, level the ground and aerate. When you sow your new lawn remember to keep the water levels up. New grass seed is thirsty vegetation and will benefit from frequent waterings.
Now is the perfect time to fertilise your existing lawn to encourage new growth. However, if you have sprayed your garden with weed control, it is best to wait two weeks before doing so.
