The Early Summer treatment helps your lawn to grow in a strong and healthy way as the temperature rises. The nutrient feed applied is coated to protect the lawn - the process of slow release allows it to work for up to 10 weeks. This feed strengthens the grass, thickens the sward and ensures a vibrant colour.
Summer is the time when drought can occur and lawns may turn brown and straw coloured, but there’s no need to worry; this is natural and established, well-maintained lawns will invariably recover once the rains return. Newly laid turf must be kept well-watered, but established lawns do not need to be watered routinely. Lawns with a high content of fescues and rhizomatous grass types are deep-rooting and tend to be more drought tolerant. They will go brown during dry conditions, but colour will return when rain arrives.
Good maintenance at other times of the year, including aeration and appropriate feeding will help your lawn’s rooting and its ability to withstand and recover from periods of drought. If possible, avoidance is better than cure and the only way to prevent drought is to water the lawn.
During this treatment we will also target those troublesome weeds.
