Autumn Treatments

This is one of the most important treatments of our feed programme as it prepares your lawn for the harsh winter conditions ahead. Our main priority for this treatment is to strengthen the grass roots to ensure the plant is healthy through the colder months.

The products used at this time of year are designed to provide a balanced nutrient input. Too much nitrogen can lead to a quicker growing plant leave it susceptible to diseases later in the autumn/winter. Potassium and phosphate will help harden the plant ready for the winter period, as well as lasting longer in wetter conditions and will also hold back the beginning of moss spores in shaded and damp areas of your lawn.

Key points we look out for

  • Moss growth. Moss spores need to be controlled early on to stop the moss spreading across your lawn.
  • The health of the grass leaves. We need to maintain a healthy grass as it can be put under a lot of stress over the coming months.
  • The health of your lawn’s roots. We need to apply a product that will maintain root strength through winter.
  • Autumn and winter disease development. Specific amounts of each nutrient are required to help stop the development of some diseases.
