Early Summer Treatment

An essential top up for a thicker, greener lawn

The Early Summer treatment helps your lawn to grow in a strong and healthy way as the temperature rises. The nutrient feed applied is coated to protect the lawn - the process of slow release allows it to work for up to 10 weeks. This feed strengthens the grass, thickens the sward and ensures a vibrant colour.

We also apply a herbicide to target any new weed invaders that may have sprung up in the spring months, resulting in a lawn to be proud of at this time of year when you'll be using it most.

How it works

The feed is a unique blend of a polymer coated fertiliser and naturally sourced mineral, designed to reduce scorch; it is a truly beneficial feed for the grass. Its formula breaks down like this:

  • Nitrogen, which encourages strength and colour, in a slightly increased ratio compared to our Spring Treatment
  • Potassium helps to sustain the plant and Magnesium and Calcium supports the Nitrogen to do its job

The Nitrogen part of the treatment is fully coated to prevent it directly touching the plant as this can cause scorching. It's slowly released in the soil to help restock the level of nitrates over the summer and to continue strengthening the plant.

The herbicide part of the treatment is designed to only affect weeds that have a leaf in the lawn. Its selective nature means that it shouldn't harm the grass, especially when target spraying. Depending on how many weeds can be seen in the lawn, it's applied either by a blanket or target spraying technique, as determined by our trained lawn advisor.
