While winter is not the most comfortable time of year to be in the garden due to the frosty cold, it is important not to neglect your lawn maintenance. You won’t have to mow as often during winter, so it’s great to reallocate that saved time to get on top of those winter weeds and perhaps give your lawn a colour… then retreat into the warmth of the open fire until spring!
Here are some handy jobs you can do for your lawn this winter.
Apply ColourGuard Plus.
ColourGuard Plus is an organic grass colourant. It contains natural green pigment that is absorbed into the grass leaf to instantly restore colour. It also contains liquid nitrogen to strengthen and protect grass under extreme conditions. Apply ColourGuard Plusnow to improve your lawn colour and help protect the leaf from the cold and frost.
Get your weeds under control.
After all the hard work you put into making your lawn look superb during the warmer months, everyday winter weeds can be extremely irritating. The best time to treat winter weeds in your lawn is during winter. This gives you the best chance of removing them before they seed and preventing them from coming back again next season. For more information on specific weed control visit our weed control blog.
Apply pre-emergent herbicide and fertiliser.
Lawn Solutions OxaFert Herbicide & Fertiliser is a pre-emergent herbicide that controls many of the annual grasses and broadleaf weeds that plague warm-season turf. Pre-emergent herbicides target weed seeds before they take hold by forming a barrier at soil level to prevent germination of new seedlings. Spreading Oxafert now will give your lawn protection from winter weeds for up to three months.
