After a very long and dry summer, garden lawns in particular took the brute force of the extensive heat. Unfortunately, this has left many lawns looking patchy and no longer in optimum condition. Here at Polhill Garden Centre, we have the perfect blend of products and expertise in ensuring that your lawns receive the best Autumn care treatment to cure the look of your garden.
DISPOSE OF LEAVES
Getting rid of leaves on top of your lawn is a quintessential step with regards to help fixing your lawn. The best method for this process is using a rake, ensuring that you don’t have to continuously bend down and pick up leaves one by one. Leaving leaves on top of your lawn will mean that they will start to mold, causing further surface damage to your lawn.
STEPPING STONES AND PATHS
Laying down stepping stones or forming paths is a fantastic measure to help keep your lawn well maintained over the colder months. With wetter weather, the soil is absorbing all of the rain, meaning that the ground area would be much more softer when walked upon. Therefore, implementation of stepping stones or paths would help reduce the amount of foot traffic directly on your lawn.
This would enable you to maintain easy access to areas such as your shed, greenhouse, washing line or bins without the risks of damaging your lawn.
CUTTING YOUR LAWN
The way you cut your lawn is also an important element to consider. As the months start to become colder, your grass will be growing slower. Therefore, adjusting the height on your lawnmower to cut your grass higher, is highly recommended. This will help give your lawn that neat and maintained look, helping to keep your garden looking beautiful.
The removal of moss is another important element to be considered. Here at Polhill Garden Centre we stock products which are very useful for this process, such as Aftercut All In One. This product is specially formulated to help protect your lawn during the colder Autumn period.
Once the moss has died, you can then use a rake to get rid of the moss. We stock a wide variety of rakes to help you with the job.
FEED AND CONDITION YOUR LAWN
Continuous feeding and conditioning of your lawn is a pivotal step during the colder temperatures. Its imperative to use Autumn conditioning, so that your lawn receives all of the necessary nutrients that it needs.
Here at Polhill, we stock the relevant products and Aftercut All In One (check products here) is the perfect product to help give your lawn the necessary protection this Autumn, whilst reinstalling its green nature.
For any help and advice our team are always happily available to assist you with any enquiries.
