Get Your Lawn Growing Again With These Spring Grass Growing Tips

Spring is a great time to give your lawn some care as it comes out of dormancy. As your lawn comes out of dormancy it is important to begin regular mowing. Your mowing frequency will depend on your lawn variety:

Depending on the condition of your lawn as it comes out of winter, a good spring lawn care schedule should include spring lawn care tasks like the following.

How To Prepare Your Grass For Spring

  • Test your soil pH to make sure it’s in the 6-7 range.
  • Apply a slow-release granular fertiliser such as Lawn Solutions Fertiliser or Oxafert.
  • Repair bare patches by increasing essential nutrients and growth with Exceed Liquid Fertiliser monthly.
  • Aerate your soil to improve the nutrient and water consumption of your lawn’s roots
  • Remove any weeds before they go to seed.
  • Dethatch your lawn if it has a lot of dead organic matter in the lawn profile.
  • Try topdressing your lawn if it is uneven or if some areas are struggling after winter.

Mowing

Summer is the time when your lawn will grow most actively, so it’s important to mow it regularly to maintain a healthy lawn. It is also important to never remove more than a third of the grass blades when mowing. Your mowing frequency will depend on your lawn variety:

Water

Depending on the heat and rainfall, you may also need to water your lawn to prevent it from drying out. A weekly or fortnightly deep soaking should be sufficient for established lawns. We recommend a timed irrigation system or sprinklers, as these methods are more effective than hand watering.

  • Apply a wetting agent such as Lawn Solutions Soaker
  • Aerate your lawn
  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as Lawn Solutions Fertiliser or Oxafert if day temperatures are over 28 degrees best to apply in the cool of the day and well water in.
  • Weekly or fortnightly deep watering (depending on weather conditions)
  • Weed control
  • Control growth of varieties such as TifTuf using a plant growth regulator such a PrimoMaxx

To prepare your lawn for the slower growing and cooler months, you should increase your mowing height. Mowing your lawn too short can leave it vulnerable to weed infestation as it enters winter dormancy. 

 

Good autumn turf care calls for aerating your soil with a garden fork, especially if it’s had a lot of traffic from entertaining and playing in the warmer weather.

Lawn Preparation For Winter

As your lawn enters winter dormancy, it will grow less and may lose some colour. As a result, you will need to mow winter grass less frequently during this period or only as needed. If your lawn does need a mow, remember to use a higher mowing height.
