Helping the soil underneath
One great tip for better preparing for extreme weather is preparing your soil to take water, to do this you can use a wetting agent. This product works by allowing the soil to open up allowing water to penetrate evenly throughout the soil profile. This makes watering more efficient, reducing loss through runoff and gives your lawn more access to water stores. Wetting agents can be applied from simple hose on applicators, making it nice and easy. In the simplest of terms getting the water where it’s needed most.
Water isn’t the only nutrient your lawn needs
While your lawn will love the burst of rain, water is not the only nutrient your lawn needs. Fertilising regularly will keep your lawn at its best health. Fertilising three times a year is best, in early Spring, Summer and coming into Autumn.
By applying fertiliser regularly, you give your lawn the nutrients it needs to maintain good health and colour. Fertiliser also helps prevent stress and disease. Coming into Autumn is a particularly important time to fertilise as it prepares your lawn for the coming Winter. Applying fertiliser in Autumn encourages prolonged growth ensuring thick coverage and superior colour.
