Autumn Weather is Here

Well, we didn’t really get too much of a summer but the last few weeks of Autumn weather here in Adelaide have been amazing. Not too hot and not too cold. Now that daylight saving has ended and we’ve had a few cooler nights it’s time to start thinking about getting your lawn ready for winter so it can have a great start in the spring.

We haven’t had much in the way of rain so it’s important to keep your watering schedule up, especially the deep watering. If you have any bare patches there is still time to over sow with seed while our temperatures are still warm enough. This will help keep weeds at bay over winter. Once you have your correct grass seed, aerate the soil to be sown, sow your grass seed, fertilise with a nitrogen heavy slow release fertiliser and make sure to keep the re-sown area well watered for the next few weeks.

It’s also a good time to aerate your entire lawn, especially if you are looking at applying an autumn fertilising application. Aerating your lawn will help the fertiliser get to where it needs to be and will also help break up any soil compaction from high traffic areas caused by summer use. If you need help with aerating or coring your lawn, this is a service that we are able to offer with our specialised machine that will quickly and easily get the job done for you. If you are fertilising, we suggest using a nitrogen heavy slow release fertiliser. This will need to be thoroughly watered in. Fertilising now with milder temperatures and warmer soil will encourage strong root growth which will help keep your lawn healthy over winter and set your grass up for a great Spring/Summer later in the year.

If you happen to have Autumn leaves falling on your lawn, it’s a good idea to either rake these up or mow using your catcher. While fallen leaves can look great, in large amounts they can block sunlight from your lawn preventing photosynthesis from happening and could cause fungal disease.

Any effort you are able to put in now for getting your lawn healthy and growing strongly will pay off in the next few Autumn months allowing your lawn to be strong and healthy for Winter. This will then mean a strong start to Spring and Summer.
