Winter Lawn Care Checklist

Temperatures have started to drop, and there have even been a few frosts – so what can you do do to prepare your lawn for the Winter ahead?

Should I fertilise my lawn?

A fertiliser application will help give your lawn a final boost before the cooler temperatures set in. This will help your lawn recover from any stresses caused over the warmer month and can help extend your lawns colouring heading into winter.

As the temperatures have already started to cool, you are best off using a liquid fertiliser like Lawn Solutions Australia’s Exceed, , as it will be absorbed quickly by the leaf of the grass.

How regularly should I be mowing my lawn?

As temperatures start to decline, your lawn will slowdown in growth. Although growth will slow, it is best to ensure you don’t stop mowing and follow the one-third rule.

What is the one-third rule? This is how much of the leaf you should remove when mowing. If more than one-third of the leaf is removed, it can cause stress to the lawn, and scalping can occur. So, by removing no more than one-third, the grass will stay healthy and won’t become stressed.

What can I use to stop weeds in my lawn over Winter?

It is best to know what kind of weed you have before looking at products.

For common broadleaf weeds like Clover, Bindii, Oxalis, Cudweed and Catsear, we recommend using a broadleaf herbicide like All Purpose Weed Control or Amgrow Bin Die. The All Purpose Weed Control comes in an easy-to-use hose-on bottle that sprays out the product. The Amgrow Bin Die comes in a concentrate that needs to be mixed with water and applied through a knapsack or sprayer.

Should I use Iron on my lawn?

Heading into winter, you can look at using an iron-based product to help extend and improve your lawns colour both heading into and throughout the cooler months. Iron products can also be used to help strengthen your grass.

If you want to use an iron-based product heading into winter, we recommend using Iron Guard Plus.
