Spring in Adelaide 2022

Spring in Adelaide 2022 – has it even arrived? It sure has been feeling like winter is back most days. What with all the rain, wind, hail and much cooler temperatures, some people I’ve spoken to have been running their heaters again!

With all the rain we’ve had, it’s likely that you won’t need to do much in the way of watering just yet. If in doubt, just stick your finger into the soil and see whether it is dry or not. If you are noticing pooling with the rain or while watering, it might be an idea to aerate the soil a bit to ensure that the water is getting to where it needs to be, down at the grass roots.
If you haven’t fertilised yet for Spring don’t stress, you can still do this now. A well fed and maintained lawn will be able to withstand the summer heat and weed encroachment much more effectively.

Needing to mow? Make sure you think about adjusting your lawn mower height. With temperatures rising (soon hopefully!), try to never take off more than one third of the length of your lawn. This will help to make sure your lawn stays healthy and dense. If only removing shorter amounts each time you mow, it is possible to not have to collect lawn clippings as these are small enough to quickly break down and put nutrients back into the soil.

If you’ve been thinking about de-thatching or scarifying, now is the time to do it, especially if you’re after a green lawn again ready for Christmas. Thatch is the light brown coloured material that gets exposed after mowing. Removing this layer helps to keep your lawn healthier by more easily allowing nutrients, light and water to reach the soil and makes for better drainage helping to prevent fungal problems.

You can de-thatch using your lawn mower and scarify by hiring a specialised machine or by getting someone to do it for you. Regular de-thatching and scarifying, general rule of thumb is every 2 years or so depending on your lawn type, will rejuvenate your lawn keeping it looking great and much easier to look after. Be aware though, it can be a shock going from green lawn to what looks like dead grass. Once this is done, treat your lawn with a liquid wetting agent and a good quality complete fertiliser. Your lawn should be back to looking fantastic in about 4 weeks but with no thatch!

The Instant Lawn Adelaide team offer de-thatching and scarifying as part of their maintenance service. This can be as a one off service or part of our seasonal program. This takes out the hassle and guesswork for you giving you time to enjoy your lawn.
