How to maintain a quality lawn?

Lawn Feed

To keep a lush green healthy lawn, lawn feed should be used, starting in the Springtime and every 6-8 weeks with the correct seasonal fertiliser. Remember, your lawn is made up of many living grass plants, and like any plant, requires nourishment to thrive and remain strong (a strong lawn stops moss or weeds developing).

For grass to thrive it needs the following: nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (N P and K). Your lawn feed will indicate the percentage of these elements on their packaging in this order, for example; 9:7:7 on a fertiliser pack, refers to the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium in the lawn feed.

Spread the fertiliser evenly (this will prevent scorching and a balanced lawn colour.)

Use a fertiliser spreader that spins the lawn feed forward as opposed to one that dispenses through its underneath. This ensures that the lawn feed is applied evenly.

Spread the fertilizer before it is due to Rain. This will wash it into the soul quickly.
