The Autumn is the time to prepare for the Winter months with a lawn that is in the best condition possible. It will need a feed which will not encourage excessive growth but one that will harden the grass to protect it from the harsh, wintery conditions. Applying a good Autumn Fertiliser, will also encourage greater root development which will be essential next spring/summer.
WHY DO YOU APPLY AN AUTUMN GRASS FEED?
Applying an autumn fertiliser sets the lawn up for the winter. Unlike the spring fertiliser the autumn fertiliser has less nitrogen in it, but more magnesium. The magnesium helps to develop a strong root growth on the lawn with the general fertiliser topping up the nutrients that have been used in the summer ensuring the grass it ready for the colder weather.
WHEN TO APPLY AN AUTUMN GRASS FEED?
We apply the autumn fertiliser from September onwards.
