Dry Weather Treatment

Essential lawn care

If your lawn is experiencing dry patch then My Lawn’s dry weather treatment allows water to penetrate through hard ground and thatch more freely. In turn this prevents the lawn from drying out by making sure that water gets into the roots.

In the past these hydrating treatments to control dry patch have only been used in a professional capacity on sporting pitches such as golf courses and bowling greens.  As the summers in the UK are typically becoming warmer and dryer for longer this treatment is quickly becoming an essential part of our lawn care programme.

The treatment heavily reduces the amount of time spent watering the lawn during the warmer weather. We apply this professional treatment to most lawns from spring and through the summer. Hydrophobic soil occurs when water is unable to penetrate the soil profile. If the ground is too hard or if there is too much thatch present then the water can’t reach the root zone causing the lawn to dry out.  

The treatment can dramatically reduce the amount of watering needed during the drier months with the lawn absorbing and holding water more effectively. Treatment is best applied as a preventative before the warm weather arrives but can also be used to help speed up the recovery.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Is it useful to aerate the lawn before a dry weather treatment? 

A: Yes, absolutely. We would recommend having the lawn aerated as this will only improve the process of allowing water and nutrients to penetrate the soil.

Q: Can I mow the lawn following the treatment? 

A: Yes the lawn can be mown as normal following the treatment. As these treatments are typically applied during spring and summer we would recommend mowing the lawn to 1 ½ – 2 inches in length. This will help the lawn hold on to moisture more effectively. 

Q: Does the lawn need watering? 

A: The treatment will need watering in post treatment. This will help the spray to find its way through the soil. If heavy rain is imminent then you need not worry.
