What should I feed my lawn in spring?
Spring weather can be unpredictable at the best of times, but generally temperatures are rising and spring showers are frequent, providing ideal conditions for lawn growth.
Feeding your lawn in spring when it is actively growing will help you to create the strongest seedlings for the summer months ahead. So, if you're wondering, "What should I feed my lawn in spring?", you've come to the right place!
Using a lawn feed now will help to make your grass greener, thicker, and more aesthetically pleasing. It will also help ensure it is ready to fight off any weeds, moss, and weather-related stress. But with so many products, what should you feed your lawn in spring?
Feeding a new lawn in spring
If you’re planning on sowing a new lawn from scratch this springtime, you should try our Pre-Seed First Feed. This feed gives your new seedlings the best possible start to their growth journey. It contains a mix of nitrogen, phosphate and potassium that will work together for six weeks to boost new leaf growth and greenness, improve the root system, and toughen up your new seedlings so that they are ready to fight off any lawn diseases that crop up over the spring and summer months.
While it is called Pre-Seed First Feed, if you have any leftovers after your lawn has fully grown, you can use this as a general lawn feed to help maintain the healthiness, strength and look of your lawn. Make sure to follow our guide on How to use lawn food if this is your first time to make sure you get the most out of your lawn feed.
Feeding a damaged lawn before summer
Even with a meticulous lawn regime, there are times when you can’t avoid a weed or two popping up across your lawn or a cluster of moss appearing. With the right lawn care, you can easily fix it. Our 3 IN 1 Lawn Rescue is a multifunctional lawn feed that will work to kill off any weeds or moss in the first two weeks of application and then continue to feed and green your lawn for four weeks after that. After using this, your lawn can appear patchy after removing any dead moss or weeds. This leaves your lawn perfectly primed for some overseeding to help even out those patches and refresh your lawn. Follow our guide on how to overseed your lawn to ensure you know exactly what to do to achieve an insta-worthy lawn this spring!
Feeding an established lawn
To keep your lawn healthy year-round, you should aim to feed it at least twice a year. We recommend you offer your lawn a feed in autumn with our Winter Remedy and then again in spring using our All Summer Long lawn feed. When applied, our All Summer Long lawn feed will work over the course of 16 weeks to make sure your lawn is fully fed with all the beneficial nutrients it could want. We recommend applying this in spring to ensure your lawn is covered right through the summer months, where conditions can be quite testing on our lovely lawns.
If you are planning on hosting a summer event in your garden and you need a Wimbledon-worthy lawn, try our Oh So Green lawn feed. It’s a fast-acting lawn feed that will transform your lawn from drab to fab in the space of 6 short weeks!
If your lawn is a place of play for pets and kids, you could opt for our All Natural Nutriboost lawn feed. It’s a 16-week organic feed that will revitalise your lawn while being completely safe for kids and pets too.
