April is the start of the Spring lawn maintenance program, main jobs for April as well as mowing are :

  • Scarifying
  • Fertilising
  • Moss Treatment
  • Spot Weed Treatment
  • Aeration
  • Top Dressing
  • Repairs to the lawn

As the year has got off to a slow start due to cold weather and snow you may well have not made your first cut yet but you need to start quite soon as April is usually a wet month, as soon a temperatures start to rise growth will be vigorous and mowing will become difficult. Mow later in the day giving the grass time to dry out a little and leave the mower to cut quite high until your into a regular mowing pattern. When finished thoroughly clean out the mower as you don’t want wet grass stuck in the blades or under the canopy as this will cause rust problems to metal parts and always keep blades sharp.
