A couple of questions we’re often asked at this time of year are ‘Do you have much on at the moment?’ and ‘What do you do during the winter?’. In short, the answers to those questions are ‘Yes, of course’ and ‘Plenty’ respectively.
For many, lawn care is put on the back burner during the winter months for numerous reasons. Such as the cold weather, shorter daylight hours and the festive period. However, this is certainly not the case for Will’s Norfolk Lawns and most lawn care companies in general. The winter months, if anything, are some of the most important of the year as this is when all of our preparation is done for the year ahead.
So what is it exactly that we do during the winter?
Although everyone loves the thought of having a fantastic looking lawn during the summer. It is during the that the ground work begins to achieve this. Starting with our Lawn Conditioner treatments.
If you consider what lawns potentially have to deal with during the winter months – lots of rain and waterlogging, frost and snow, shade, disease such as Fusarium and debris like leaf-drop from the trees. It is not the time to take your eye off of the ball and to just leave your lawn to look after itself.
Our Lawn Conditioner treatment is the fifth and final treatment within the cycle of our annual Lawn Treatment Programmes. The liquid application is made to lawns during December and January and contains vital ingredients to keep the lawns ticking over in what can be a challenging time of year. With over five micro-nutrients packed into the treatment it offers the lawn some protection against the factors noted above, as well as a high percentage of iron to control moss and prevent moss spores from spreading.
