Now is the time to prepare your lawn for winter. Steps you take now will ensure that your grass grows even greener next year!

Continue mowing you lawn while it is still mild but remember to cut it a bit longer or the lawn could soon be overgrown by moss.

Fertiliser in autumn should be high in potash and phosphates as this will help strengthen your lawn and reduce frost damage.

For older lawn which are prone to moss, it’s not too late now to scarify. This will give your lawn time to recover while it is still mild and with regular water before winter sets in.
