It’s cold and wet outside, and we are in the depths of Winter. If your lawn is like many we deal with you have had a burst of broadleaf weeds or Wintergrass that you need to get rid of, if you haven’t already, and you aren’t needing to mow it very much.
But there is hope - Spring really is just around the corner and now is the time to start getting your lawn ready for when the sun comes back again. So what do you need to do? Well, we have three tips for every lawn lover to prep your lawn for Spring:
1. Get rid of those weeds and Wintergrass!
As I mentioned above, there is a good chance your lawn is covered with Wintergrass, Onion Weed or one of many Broadleaf weeds. These can shade out your lawn during this quiet time, cutting it off from what sunlight there is, which provides the energy for your lawn to grow.
There is a wide variety of products on the market that can kill any manner of different weeds, but you may not know what weed you have. If that is the case, our good friends at Living Turf have a great Weed Identification Guide at www.livingturf.com.au/weed-identification
And if you don’t want the hassle of doing it yourself, we at Positively Green are experts in identifying and appropriately treating all types of weeds and Wintergrass.
2. Aeration and Wetting Agent
Aerating is the process of punching solid spikes or prongs into your lawn to create little holes. These holes help relieve compaction, allow oxygen and water into your soil profile and give your root system a chance to grow deeper into the soil to access more nutrients and water.
And if you add a good wetting agent it will help your lawn make the most of the winter rains and have it ready for when the weather starts to dry up again.
The final part of the three-step process is to give your lawn a good Foliar fertilise. It is important to use a high quality foliar fertiliser, with added humates, kelp and microbiology to increase the plant’s cell wall and promote lawn health. For the best liquid fertilisers available online, visit The Lawn Shed, otherwise, to have an expert come out with the full range of professional products, get in touch with us at Positively Green.
It really is as simple as that.
These three steps can be done separately or all at the same time, through one of our one-off service visits, whatever suits you. And if you need help with anything to do with your lawn, get in touch with us at www.positivelygreen.com.au
