In the Autumn supplies box, you shall receive lawn care products to get your lawn ready for the onslaught of winter and ensure that it has the best fighting chance to get through the reduced growing months. Controlling any weeds and worms and feeding the turf grasses will ensure that your lawn retains density and cover so you do not get muddy patches. Keeping the leaf litter off the lawn is a top priority.
Full instructions for use will be contained on the products in the normal way.
Apply as soon as your Lawn Box arrives. Always feed before you weed thus apply the fertiliser a few weeks ahead of the selective weed killer treatment. As soon as you view the first lawn worm cast, apply the worm cast control product.
Do not mow three days before or after making a lawn treatment
Worm Cast Control - a sulphur
based liquid which will keep the worm casts at bay for a 20 day period.
Re apply at 1/3rd dose rate every 20 days until the worms naturally
stop casting on the lawn surface. Controlling the worm casts will
greatly improve your lawn surface and turf grass density as the grass growth naturally slows with the colder night time temperatures.
Fertiliser - Slow Release Granular Fertiliser with a typical analysis of N28 - P3 - K8 that has 50% of it's Nitrogen source in a slow release form that will give a steady nutrient release for up to 12 weeks, so until your next Lawn Box arrives! Applied with a rotary spreader at a rate of 30 grams per square metre. For even coverage, you could cut the rate in half and apply twice, at right angles to each other making sure you look after the edges. The fertiliser will not harm your plant or shrub borders should some fertiliser end up off the lawn. Fertilising now will ward off Leaf Spot and Rust Diseases, commonly seen in the autumn and winter months.
