For the best results, you should mow your lawn regularly to help it grow strong and to deter weed growth. A consistent approach is key for a healthy lawn. We’d recommend applying a lawn treatment to control weed and moss growth and give your lawn the correct balance of nutrients it needs to flourish. These steps should keep your lawn looking fresh throughout all of spring.

Care For Your Lawn In The Spring 

Early Spring is a great time of the year to kick your lawn in to gear for the year ahead. Spring treatments should have a good nitrogen uptake whilst combatting any moss that has set in from winter. Knowing what care is needed for your lawn this spring is essential. Without proper care, your lawn may not look at its best heading in to the summer months.

You need to help your lawn to recover after the harsher colder months. Here at My Lawn, we offer seasonal treatments that are designed to help keep your lawn looking as healthy as possible.

What Care Is Needed For My Lawn In Spring? 

You can give your lawn a range of treatments to keep it strong and lush this spring. We will care for your lawn, so you don’t have to. We offer treatments here at My Lawn, such as:

  • Scarification: Helps to reduce thatch, debris and other organic material in your lawn. Scarification will help to remove the barriers that prevent new growth in your lawn allowing for the easier uptake of nutrients and water. 
  • Hollow Tine Aeration: We can give you a thicker, lusher lawn with hollow tine aeration. This will allow the grass thatch to be broken up so that water, air and nutrients can go to the roots of the grass.  Hollow tine aeration is also fantastic at relieving compaction.
  • Lawn Renovation: If you want to give your lawn a fresh look, our lawn renovation service can help. We return the lawn to its bare bones and create the perfect lawn for your garden. 
  • Overseeding: We can help give you a thicker, vibrant lawn through overseeding. Overseeding can help an old lawn look like new by giving it a new lease if life! A thicker lusher lawn will naturally help keep to weeds and moss at bay. We tailor our overseeding to match the requirements of each lawn.
  • Pest Control: If you suspect that you have a pest problem in your garden, we have tailored plans that we can put in place to help the issue. We can treat you lawn to remove pests such as chafer grubs, leatherjackets and ants in your lawn.
  • Soil Amendments: Here at MyLawn, we offer soil amendments service to improve the structure of your lawn. This improves the root zone, allowing water, air and nutrients to be better absorbed.

Should You Cut Your Lawn In Spring? 

Mowing your lawn is an essential part of treating your lawn during spring. Mowing helps to keep your lawn strong and deter weed growth. You should avoid mowing if your lawn is too wet (damp is acceptable) as you can leave visible ruts, cause soil compaction and damage to the grass.  

What Time Should You Cut Your Lawn? 

Your lawn can benefit from a well-timed cut; mid-morning tends to be the ideal time to cut your lawn. It allows enough time for dew to dry, resulting in solid blades of grass while avoiding the hottest periods of the day. You could also opt for late afternoon (between 4 pm and 6 pm) as this avoids the main heat of the day but allows time for your grass to recover before nightfall. 

Cooling temperatures during this time of day will reduce stress on you and your grass. It also gives your grass a few hours of post-cut recovery time. We’d recommend mowing your lawn at least once a week during the spring to maintain strength and promote healthy growth. 

During spring we would recommend cutting the lawn to approximately 40mm (1.5 inches). This would usually mean adjusting your mower to a higher setting.

Cutting the lawn short is one of the biggest mistakes in lawn care as this will inevitably weaken the lawn causing moss, weeds and fungal disease to creep in.
