Apeiron Lawn Care

Taking care of your lawn in October

October is a month of autumnal change as the leaves change colour on the trees, the temperature continues to drop and the evenings pull in even further when British Summer Time comes to an end. Now is the time to give your lawn a final mow on a high cut setting to help keep any lingering weeds in check until the spring. You may also wish to consider top-dressing your lawn to further aid in weed control, as well as carrying out any beneficial cultural treatments such as scarification and aeration. Cultural treatments play an important role in lawn care as they encourage the development of a strong and healthy root system. Finally, be sure to keep your lawn clear of fallen leaves so that light and air can penetrate the grass.

If you would like a lawn care specialist to assess your lawn to ensure it is in tip-top condition ahead of winter, give us a call today on 01502 677 019.

Your questions answered

Each month, we answer your questions to help you get the most out of your outdoor environment. This month’s question comes from Jamie Branson who asks:

"“How can I prepare my lawn for winter?”

Increase Root Resilience

Thank you for your question, Jamie – this is a very challenging time of year for our lawns.

Throughout the summer, we have been focusing our efforts on promoting growth and maintaining that lush, green colour, but now we must switch our attention to increasing resilience in the root zone to ensure that our lawns can cope the winter months ahead.

Autumn Feed

Through use of a high-quality autumn feed, we can reduce nitrogen levels to slow down growth and increase the level of potassium to help strengthen the root zone. By adding in an element of iron, this will control moss ingress as the weather becomes wetter.
