Autumn is a busy gardening season – winter and spring preparation starts now!
Autumn lawn treatment
October is the perfect opportunity to scarify, aerate and top dress your lawns. Scarification removes layers of thatch (old/dead grass/moss) and can be done with either a spring-tine rake or a scarifier. Following scarification you can aerate your lawn using a fork and then brush sand or top dressing to the aerated areas. If you want to give your lawn a treat then put down a autumn feed which helps promote healthy root growth over the winter months.
