Throughout the whole winter, it's important to keep your lawn free of debris and leaves which could starve the grass of light and weaken it. These are the basic tasks you should be carrying out to care for your grass in February, but what if you'd like to do some extra lawn maintenance tasks?
During February, you should focus on things that will improve the quality of your grass when it starts to grow again in spring.
If your grass looks like it needs a cut in February, and the ground is not too wet, then your lawn will benefit from a high cut. Although lawn growth will be slow at this time of year, a high cut will remove the top of the grass blades and encourage new, healthy growth.
Aerating the lawn with a garden fork or use an areator machine, is a good task for winter as it helps improve drainage and soil compaction. It can also help oxygen to circulate. Only carry out this job if the ground is dry enough and there is no frost. Hire a Lawn Aerator: Call Shire Tool Hire Devizes 01380 721575
