Don’t forget your lawn this Winter!


As we begin to enter December, our lawns start to rest. But what we do with our lawns now determines how healthy they’ll be next year. 

Understandably, our gardens are not at the forefront of our mind come December, but weather permitting, it’s good to take care of a few gardening chores now to ensure a lush lawn when we come to enjoy them again. 

  • Remove Items

We recommend tidying up any items left on the lawn. It’s easy to leave items on the lawn, especially when it’s cold and wet outside. But, if an item is left on the grass during the cold weather, it can create large dead spots because of the weight and lack of sunlight. When spring arrives, the grass in that area will be stunted and thinner than the rest of the lawn. 

  • Remove Leaves

It can feel like a constant battle keeping your lawn clear of leaves but allowing them to gather on your lawn can block out sunlight and air which your grass needs to survive. The trapped moisture underneath also creates moss-loving conditions (which you don’t want!). We recommend braving the cold to remove the leaves at least once a week. 

What to do with autumn leaves – GreenThumb’s tips to putting your fallen leaves to good use.

  • Garden Tools

The cold and wet weather can damage your garden tools if not brought indoors. Ensure you bring them in and give them a good clean.

  • Garden Hoses

Remember to drain and detach your garden hoses or you run the risk of your pipes freezing and bursting. 

  • Lawn Treatment

For the best results, take care of your lawn with our Autumn Long treatment. This treatment contains a micro-nutrient feed and a moss control element, designed to support your lawn over the winter period. It will continue to give the lawn a long-lasting green colour and help to toughen the grass plant for the conditions to come.
