Winter Treatment

Winter really is a trying time for your lawn. The grass plant’s growth slows down to an almost standstill while moss thrives in it’s attempt to take over your lawn.

To help your lawn, a soluble application of moss control is applied alongside additional nutrients that will help keep that moss under control and your lawn looking as green as possible.

The ideal conditions for the application of this treatment is during the cooler months throughout Autumn and Winter, and can be carried out in heavy rain. The solution will not be diluted in any way. The contents of the application are carried through the thatch and moss layer by water, so will have a better results following any rainfall or a heavy morning dew.

What can I expect from this treatment?

This treatment will give your lawn a richer darker colour of green. The grass plants will be more sturdy, and any moss in your lawn will start to turn black as it dies off.

Should I rake the dead moss out?

Moss grows by anchoring itself in to thatch. Thatch is made up of many things including dead moss. To help reduce the amount of future moss growth, we would recommend raking or scarifying the dead moss out. You should also consider aeration as part of your annual treatment plan. Ideally, this sort of work should only be carried out between September and April.
