February Gardening Tips

With winter slowly drawing to a close it is important to start considering your turf. We have put together a few key tips to help you achieve your dream garden:

Keep it Clean – One way to ensure that your lawn grows strong is by removing any dead leaves or debris that has fell on it throughout the winter. As well as helping to keep your lawn turf dry, it also allows for some sunlight to reach the grass which is then used in photosynthesis. Moreover the likelihood of disease is also considerably reduced through preventing your lawn from becoming overly wet.

Aerate Your Lawn – Aeration can help to make your garden turf healthier by improving air exchange and water intake. One way to aerate your lawn is by using a solid tine spiking machine, this process enables the roots to grow much deeper and helps to reduce the level of soil compaction. If you do not have a spiking machine you can always use a garden fork to aerate your lawn.
