Lawn Care Spring - Keep Moss and Weeds under control

Lawn Care Guide - Spring

With the sun starting to shine and the days getting longer we know spring is on the way.

The grass is growing as the temperature is above 50F (Fahrenheit) or 10 C (Celsius) , it’s a perfect time to kill moss and lawn weeds and also feed and condition, the lawn before mowing with an electric, petrol or push lawn mower.


Also an excellent time to sow new lawns from seed.

Follow the steps below to get a great looking lawn this spring!

First Mow of the season

Don’t be tempted to cut it if the soil is wet, or a possibility of frost or snow. Start mower blades adjusted to their highest setting, to avoid cutting the grass too short.

Allow the lawn to recover for a few days and then cut again with the blades on a lower setting. At this time of year the lawn may only need cutting about once or twice a fortnight. 

Get rid of weeds and moss

After a long winter, your lawn may have moss and weeds that are using up valuable nutrients and soil moisture that’s essential for grass to thrive to produce a good looking and healthy lawn..

Use Westland Safe Lawn Natural Lawn Feed a few days after mowing to prepare the grass. Lightly rake out the moss once it begins to die.Get your Lawn ready for the Spring !

When using the Westland Safe Lawn Natural Lawn Feed, it’s best to buy an Even-Flo Spreader to help distribute the feed evenly.
