Spring: the season of awakening and new life, the blooming of fresh buds and re-emerging beautiful colour.
GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Service share their expert advice to help you get the very best from your lawn over the spring months.
The GreenThumb NutraGreen Spring treatment equips the lawn with everything it needs for a great start to the season: making the grass plant grow stronger and more robust.
GreenThumb use no-scorch technology in their controlled-release fertilisers: NutraGreen is manufactured to require water to activate and break down the polymer coating. What’s more, NutraGreen fertilisers are completely unique to GreenThumb and are not available to other lawn treatment companies, DIY stores and garden centres etc.
The blossoming of new plants and increased growth of turfgrasses often also means weeds infesting lawns. Not only are unwanted weeds unsightly, but grass will also have to compete with weeds for sunlight, water, air and nutrients.
As well as the NutraGreen fertiliser, the GreenThumb Spring Treatment includes weed-control. Their Lawn Operatives apply a targeted herbicide spray to control weeds. Because all lawns are unique, GreenThumb customises each treatment to the needs of each lawn; as there are many different species of weeds.
The result of the NutraGreen fertiliser and weed-control duo? A beautiful, green and healthy lawn.
Being made up of plants, a lawn needs to be watered, just as any outdoor or indoor plants do; hotter, drier weather can turn a lawn yellow and dry. As the grass plant is 93% water, it will therefore eventually die if it hasn’t been able to absorb any water: it’s most beneficial to give a lawn a drink early in the morning or late in the evening.
The amount of lawnmowing required now winter is over will naturally increase; GreenThumb recommends implementing a good, regular mowing programme. It’s important that mower blades are kept sharp or replaced when needed, to avoid causing damage to the grass plant.
If possible, it is best for a lawn to be cut at least once a week, to about 25mm (1″). A little maintenance in the form of consistent mowing will help train the grass to be stronger over time.
GreenThumb treatments are tailored specifically for UK lawns: they have the solution to transform any piece of grass, whatever the size or condition – into a healthy, fresh and beautiful lawn.
