1) Tidy Away Any Loose Leaves or Rubbish

We all know that autumn and winter can be a bit harsh on our beloved lawns, leaving behind a mess of leaves and rubbish that can wreak havoc on our garden. But fear not! Before we start spot-treating any problem areas or giving our lawn a much-needed TLC session, it's crucial to clear away any loose debris. And let's be real, with when the recycling and bin days fall together, our gardens can quickly become a dumping ground for all sorts of rubbish.

So, grab your gear, get sweeping, and let's whip those lawns back into shape, because we're about to prepare our grass for spring in style!

2) Aerate if Necessary

How do you know if your lawn needs a aerating? Well, here's the lowdown: if your grass gets heavy foot traffic, if it's looking a bit compacted, or if you've noticed puddles forming after rain, it might be time to break out the aerator. This step is crucial for grass treatment in spring because it allows oxygen, water, and nutrients to penetrate deep into the soil, promoting healthy root growth and lush greenery.

But here's the kicker – aerating isn't always necessary, especially if we've had a long dry patch where the soil is already loose. So, before you bust out the big guns, take a moment to assess your lawn's needs. Missing this step when it's not needed could do more harm than good, so let's keep it smart and strategic, folks!

3) Spot Problem Areas & Rake Away Moss

Let's get down to business and tackle those pesky problem areas in our garden! First up on the agenda: spot problem areas and rake away the moss. Now, you might be wondering why we're so keen on banishing moss from our lawns – well, let me break it down for you. Moss, while it might look harmless, can be a real pain in the grass. It competes with your turf for vital nutrients and water, leaving your lawn looking lacklustre and patchy. So, grab that rake and get ready to bid farewell to moss once and for all!

But that's not all – while you're at it, take a moment to spot any trouble spots in your lawn. Whether it's bare patches, weeds, or signs of pests, now's the perfect time to nip those problems in the bud. And fear not, we'll be diving into how to treat those problem areas in the next few steps, so stay tuned! With a little TLC and some savvy problem-solving, we'll have your grass preparation for spring sorted in no time.

4) Treat Problem Areas & Feed Your Grass with Fertiliser

Whether it's bare patches, thinning areas, or pesky weeds, we've got just the trick to whip your lawn back into shape. Enter Speedy Seed Ultra Patch – your secret weapon for lush, green grass in no time. This handy little product is packed with all the good stuff your lawn needs to thrive, including premium grass seed, fertiliser, and moisture-retaining granules. Plus, it's super easy to use – simply sprinkle, water, and watch your grass spring back to life! And the best part?

But we're not done yet – once you've treated those problem areas, it's time to feed your grass with some spring lawn fertiliser. Give your turf the nutrients it craves to reach its full potential, and watch as it transforms into the envy of the town. With Speedy Seed Ultra Patch and a sprinkle of spring grass feed, your lawn will be looking better than ever in no time!

5) Regularly Water the Grass

Now that we've given our grass the royal treatment with fertiliser, it's time to sit back and let nature do its thing – with a little help from us, of course! Regularly watering the grass will give it the hydration boost it needs to flourish. Here's the deal: after applying that spring lawn fertiliser, your turf is going to be thirsty for some H2O. So, grab that watering can or hose and give your grass a good soak. But here's the beauty of living in the UK – with our famously unpredictable weather, there are bound to be times when Mother Nature steps in and waters your lawn for you. So, take advantage of those rainy days and give yourself a break from watering duty. It's all about finding that sweet spot between letting nature take its course and giving your grass the TLC, it needs. With these lawn care tips for spring, your garden will be thriving in no time – rain or shine!

How To Overseed a Lawn in Spring

It's time to level up your lawn game with a little something called overseeding! Picture this: lush, thick grass that's the envy of the town – that's the magic of overseeding. So why should you bother overseeding your lawn in spring? Well, let me break it down for you. Over time, our grass can start to thin out and become less resilient, leaving behind bare patches and uneven growth. But fear not – overseeding is here to save the day! By sowing new grass seed over your existing turf, you'll fill in those bare spots and give your lawn a much-needed boost. But, when's the best time to start overseeding? Spring is the perfect window of opportunity, as the soil is warming up and your grass is gearing up for its growth spurt. As for the type of seed to use, opt for a high-quality mix that's tailored to your specific lawn needs – whether that’s shade tolerance, drought resistance, or fast germination. So, grab your seeds, roll up those sleeves, and get ready to overseed your way to a lawn that's the talk of the town!

When To Mow Your Lawn in Spring

Let's talk lawn mowing in spring – because timing is everything when it comes to keeping your grass looking sharp! So when should you bust out the mower and give your lawn a trim? Well, here's the scoop: as the temperatures start to climb and your grass begins its spring growth spurt, it's time to dust off that mower and get to work. Typically, you can start mowing your lawn in spring once it's consistently reaching a height of around 5-7 centimetres. This usually happens around March or April, depending on where you are and how mild the weathers been. But here's the thing – mowing isn't the first step in your lawn maintenance journey. Before you even think about firing up the mower, make sure you've tackled any problem areas, applied fertiliser if needed, and given your grass a chance to bounce back from winter dormancy. Once you've ticked off those boxes, it's time to give your lawn a trim and kickstart the season on the right foot. With these lawn care tips for spring, your grass will be looking lush and lovely in no time!
