The professionals don’t use combined ‘weed and feed’ fertiliser products containing pesticides or weed killers.
They use a quality grass fertiliser and a separate weed killer or pesticide. At Lawnsmith we feel the same way so all Lawnsmith® Fertiliser is free of harmful pesticides and unless you are using our WINTER GREEN High Iron Lawn Feed you’ll get no staining of hard surfaces as is the case with most feed and weed. Liquid weed killers can then be used which are much more effective and safe once dry:
If the weather turns very hot, then the garden grass stops growing and will not use any feed. In addition to this, the lawn will start to get ‘stressed’ during prolonged dry spells, making them more susceptible to damage by lawn fertilisers. This will result in you having to take extra care of your garden lawn from that point on.
Without food to develop side shoots and thickness, the lawn seed is also open to invasion by weed seeds and moss, that thrive in low nutrient conditions. On the other hand, a regular supply of supplementary food makes your lawn thick and green.
Some lawn treatments just feed your garden lawn and are ideal if your lawn is weed and moss free, but others have added ingredients such as weed killers and/or moss killers. Furthermore, some are designed to use in the autumn to toughen up the grass ready for the winter and/or kill moss.
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.
To summarise, steps to take for lawn feeding include:
Your lawn needs another type of feed come the autumn, which will keep the grass growing at a slow rate and not so lush, but still green. Also it prepares your lawn for the winter, by building up the roots and health of the grass to withstand the cold.
The best lawn feed (or fertiliser) to use is one that provides both protection from weeds while systematically feeding your lawn. Ideally, lawn feed should be applied between April and September with Miracle-Gro EverGreen Complete 4 in 1 providing year-round feed when applied no more than twice a year.
