This can be the most important time of the year. There is plenty of moisture about and the ground is starting to warm. These conditions are ideal for the grass to grow, and your lawn requires the right amount and mix of nutrients to take full advantage.

We also apply an efficient liquid systemic broad spectrum liquid herbicide to control common weeds such as dandelions, butter cups, daisies, plantains and start to control clover and other more stubborn weeds.

An application of long lasting slow controlled release no scorch fertiliser will encourage the grass to grow thick and healthily. The balance of the nutrients in this feed is changed to increase the amount of phosphorous, potassium, and bio stimulants, and decrease the levels of nitrogen content as the demands of the grass plant change.

Our treatments ensure that there are sufficient nutrients to nourish the grass for up to 10–12 weeks. The fertilisers do not have to be watered in. However, if the lawn is dry, watering in will produce quicker results.

We also apply a broad spectrum systemic liquid herbicide which is used to control the more difficult weeds such as speedwell, trefoils and clover.

Late Summer / Early Autumn

  • Lawn Feed
  • Weed Control
  • Moss Management
  • Balanced nutrient feed with low nitrogen to strengthen & promote healthy root development, prevent surge growth.

Autumn can be a vulnerable time for grass. A combination of warm weather and damp conditions create an ideal opportunity for lawn diseases to attack the grass.

When we treat your lawn we always check for diseases. Moss is the biggest problem faced by the majority of lawns particularly those lawns on clay soils, which are common in parts of Dorset. Late summer and early autumn is the key time to start managing moss.

We apply a broad spectrum liquid herbicide to control any new weed growth, plus a low nitrogen high potassium and phosphorous fertiliser of balanced nutrients for root development, combined with an application that is not a bespoke moss killer but will dehydrate the moss plant turning it brown.

Autumn / Winter

  • Lawn Feed
  • Moss Management
  • Nourishing liquid trace element feed to toughen & strengthen grass over the winter months.
  • An essential heavy moss management (not a bespoke moss killer).
  • Helps fight winter fungal diseases and reduces moss spore development.

We apply a feed containing essential trace elements to toughen and strengthen the grass over the winter months. Moss is the biggest problem facing your lawn, it is vital that it is not allowed to develop and spread so we apply a heavy dose of a single element to dehydrate the moss plants.

Heavy moss will be dehydrated turning brown but the dead moss plant does not decompose easily, so your lawn may require scarifying to remove the dead moss and thatch from the lawn. This will create space to allow grass growth to regenerate. If your lawn is scarified, the moss removed may leave patches in your lawn, so overseeding with grass seed may also be required.

We also check for any insect damage or traces of lawn disease.
