Fertilise to supply essential nutrients to the grass. A healthy lawn reduces the chances of disease developing and if your lawn grows nice and thick you won’t get weeds popping up.
Don’t overdo it. If your grass is growing vigorously, don’t add fertiliser! Match your fertiliser to the growth rate of your lawn. Most lawn varieties will be healthy with one application twice a year.
Go for slow release. Slow release fertilisers feed your lawn gently over a longer period. Just remember to always read and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Look to fertilising in early Autumn, as you will see better grass throughout winter. Remember start to fertilise when you see autumn colour and leaves start to fall.
