Spring Treatment

The best possible start to the year

Spring is all about new growth and rejuvenation. Our customised fertiliser is uniquely developed to work in cooler temperatures, encouraging the grass plant to wake from its dormant state into the growing period. It provides the right mix of nutrients to help the grass grow stronger and give it a vibrant colour.

Spring weather conditions tend to result in a flourish of young weeds, so this treatment also includes a selective herbicide. If you're a new customer you should expect over half of your weeds to disappear after the first treatment. After three or four treatments most of your weeds should be gone.

How it works

The fertiliser part of the treatment contains the ideal balance of micronutrients to support the development of the grass plant; our experts control its application to make sure growth is adequate but not excessive. The formula breaks down like this:

  • Nitrogen encourages strength
  • Phosphorous supports root development
  • Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium contribute to the overall health of the plant

Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for growth but it isn't stored by the soil so it has to be added. It's broken down by the soil into nitrates which can then be taken up through the plants' roots. All the other micronutrients are already present in the soil so adding the fertiliser supports and rejuvenates the existing soil nutrients.

The herbicide part of the treatment is used to control broad-leafed weeds, such as dandelion, daisy, clover and buttercup. When sprayed it enters the plant via the leaf, disrupting its normal growth pattern. Gradually the appearance of weeds in the lawn reduce over the following three weeks and throughout the growing season.
