Whichever product you are using, always carefully read the label before use and apply according to the instructions.
Feeding in autumn helps encourage strong root growth, so your lawn will recover quickly from a harsh winter and put on lush green growth in spring. Autumn feeding is actually the most important feed and integral part of lawn care!
But don’t fret; below are the descriptions and properties of the types of lawn feeds, including the specific benefits of each.
Spring and summer lawn feeding
Once the weeds and moss are under control later in the spring, move over to just a lawn feed to keep the grass looking thick and green. Liquid lawn feeds via a hose end feeder are ideal for using in late spring into summer as they water the lawn as well in dry periods.
Additionally, some have moss control added for any moss present. It’s important to feed with a specific autumn lawn food such as Miracle-Gro EverGreen Autumn Lawn Care, to get the grass ready for the colder, wetter weather in winter and get the lawn ready for spring. Autumn lawn feeds will be low in nitrogen, as we don’t want to encourage any top growth, which can be soft and easily burnt by frost.
To summarise, steps to take for lawn feeding include:
For spring feeding, use a product containing feed, weed killers and moss control. This will quickly help the grass to start growing again and control any weeds that are present, plus kill off the moss that might have invaded the lawn over the winter.
The benefits of mulching are numerous; we are going to list them here:
Enjoyed the article but there are quite a few (6 at least) typo/spelling and grammar mistakes sorry!
Humid vegetal mulches
According to the amount of mulch you have, give it in priority to high water-demanding vegetables such as coliflowers, cucumbers, courgettes, melons, salads and tomatoes.
Linda Ions says
Mulching, according to the WordReference Random House Learner’s Dictionary, is a covering, as of straw, spread on the ground around plants to prevent loss of water or soil. Today, this term includes covering the soil around the crops with organic and mineral materials which will favour its development.
But more importantly: Upcoming storm or no storm, cool-season lawns such as bluegrass and fescue should never be fed in the summer. They don’t need it, and it can burn the grass. (Oops! You knew that.)
This easy summer means there shouldn’t be too much damage to repair, and the lawn owners’ only chore should be to provide a safe, legal feeding for the fall, which means anytime from mid- to late August through September. Be aware that new laws in Maryland and Virginia regulate the amount of nitrogen that can be applied to your lawn and ban the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizers.
Feed more often than that and weeds are guaranteed.
Feed your lawn and protect the bay — it isn’t hard to do
Yikes, Punkster. That’s like you or I eating five double cheeseburgers three times a day, every day of the year, except on Sunday when we have six milkshakes, too.
