Lawn: ‘Essential’ way to help ‘thicken’ grass and maintain ‘fabulous’ green colour

Lawns need extra care during the summer months including mowing and feeding regularly. According to one expert, lawns can “quickly bounce back” from heavy usage with simple steps. Carlos Real, Lawn Care Expert and Managing Director of TotalLawn, said: “As we enter summer, our lawn care focus should shift from getting the garden of your dreams, to actually maintaining it.

“The warmer months are what you’ve worked hard for, but you don’t want heavy foot traffic to damage all the progress you’ve made.

“To stimulate grass growth and keep your lawn looking fabulous, you should be mowing regularly, even as much as every two to three days.

“With more hours of sunlight, your grass will grow quicker, and the longer it is, the harder it is to work to get all the vital nutrients and water it needs to remain healthy.”

Leaving the lawn to grow too long can cause problems in the long run.

“You should also be watering your lawn once a week during the summer months, just keep an eye on the weather forecast, as knowing Britain it’ll probably rain more than that anyway.

“Your grass needs water and air to survive, so keeping a constant flow is essential.

“It’s best to avoid watering your lawn any more than once a week though, as to do so risks drowning the grass.

“If your soil becomes too saturated, the excess water will block air from entering the soil, and grass roots need oxygen to breathe.”

The lawn expert also shared top tips on how to revive a trampled lawn.

Eventually all lawns may fail to thrive if constantly in use with foot traffic and furniture.

Carlos said: “If bare patches begin to appear, this is a sign your lawn needs some attention, or a break from the constant foot traffic.

“If you need to oversee, make sure to purchase a hard wearing lawn seed as it is more resilient.

“Generally, it’s best to keep foot traffic to a minimum to prevent your grass from dying, but with regular maintenance and overseeing, you’ll maintain your luscious green grass for the rest of the summer.”
