Here are some of the basic tasks you need to perform when caring for your lawn in winter.” font_container=”tag:p|text_align:left|color:rgba(10%2C10%2C10%2C0.6)” use_theme_fonts=”yes”]
This one’s pretty self-explanatory. Whilst you’re at bunnings getting your spiky-crocs buy some fertilizer and throw it around, good nutrients = better grass.
Better grass = Neighbor envy.
You don’t need to water your lawn much, unless it’s looking very dry. If you do water it, 15 minutes in the morning should do you fine. Overwatering can lead to fungi and root rot.
This comes from someone with absolutely no professional background in maintaining lawn so take it with a grain of salt. Don’t use salt.
Mow higher and less frequently
Like a bear but grass, your lawn will slow down during winter, basically to hibernate. So it’s advisable to raise the mowing height to prevent hurting it! It’s like winter warmth, extra fat.
When mowing your lawn, do not cut the grass lower than 2.5 cm. You don’t have to be as on the ball during winter as you do Summer or Spring, you can mow your lawn when the length of the grass’s blades exceeds 6 cm or every 3-4 weeks.
There’s probably a scientific way of saying this but with lots of foot traffic and the fluctuation in temperatures, the soil can become rock hard. This hinders the roots from getting optimal nutrition and sustenance. You can head to bunnings and get these strap-on-spike crocs that allow you to aerate (air-ate) the grass to let it breathe.
