If you are considering a lawn care service, then you may be wondering when the best time is to start this.
The simple answer is that you can start a lawn care programme at any time of the year, and the sooner the better. Your lawn will always benefit regardless of the timing.
At TopGrass we have a range of seasonal treatments tailored to the specific time of year as well as the unique needs of your lawn. These are designed to keep your grass in great shape all year round and can be started whenever you’re ready.
Our Season Starter Treatment will give your lawn a boost after the cooler months and is ideal for helping your grass get into great condition during February to April. You’ll notice a difference in the condition of your lawn after just a few weeks. The service also includes a Season Starter Health Check where your lawn technician will analyse and assess the lawn condition and provide advice and recommendations from the results of the analysis. Following this advice will enable the lawn to look its best in the coming season.
As temperatures continue to rise our Early Season Treatment keeps your grass growing healthy and strong and continues to target new weeds, while the Mid Season Treatment promotes further weed control, growth and colour during the driest and hottest time of year. Combined with regular watering, you’ll be surprised how green your grass can be during these months.
As temperatures start to cool, it’s time for the Late Season Treatment, from October to December. With the weather getting wetter, this treatment focuses on inhibiting moss growth while simultaneously strengthening the root zone so that it can survive the winter. It will also improve the colour of your lawn during these months.
An End of Season Treatment will continue to treat any moss, help inhibit disease and will also green up your lawn during slow growth.
An aeration service is recommended at least once a year. An aerator is a cam-driven machine that spikes holes into the ground in order to enable air, nutrients and water to reach the grass roots zone more effectively. It also aids with soil compaction and encourages root growth through agitating the ground as it propels itself forwards. This service is usually carried out during the summer months.
Important renovation services such as our Lawn Improver and Total Reseed programmes are also available and are carried out from August to October. These services are reserved for those lawns that need a little more help in becoming a lush green lawn.
The sooner you start lawn care services, the sooner you will have a healthy and thriving lawn that you can enjoy and be proud of all year round. So why wait?
