Experts are advising gardeners to put extra care into reviving their lawns after harsh winter conditions, which may have taken a toll on the lawn, causing dead and dull patches. However, with spring just around the corner, gardening experts at Gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk have shared tips and tricks on how to bring it back to life.
A spokesperson for the company said: “It is usual for your lawn to look rough after winter, especially after bearing all the storms, cold temperatures and harsh weather conditions we’ve had this year.
“Although your lawn can recover on its own, it’s helpful to aid and speed up the process by helping it prepare for healthy growth.
“With a few simple steps, you can make a huge impact on rejuvenating your lawn and right now is the perfect time to get your garden back into shape.”
To help start the process of reviving the lawn, gardeners should remove any debris that has built up on the lawn including dead leaves and branches.

They added: “It would help to make sure that your grass and plants are watered consistently, significantly if you had thinned patches that you had to over seed after winter.
“In the UK this shouldn’t be too tricky as it rains so often, but gardeners should not forget to give their extra lawn care when it’s dry.”
To help make the lawn “greener” and “healthier”, gardeners could fertilise their lawn to help provide it with the nutrients.
Fertilising helps plants and grass grow to their full potential.
The experts continued: “To ensure that your lawn stays in good shape throughout the year, you should maintain its maintenance even after you’ve managed to resurrect it.
“That’s the thing with gardening, you can’t just look after your garden for a few weeks and then abandon it, it requires constant upkeep and care.
“To keep your lawn looking friendly and healthy, mow it regularly, make sure that the grass gets enough water and fertilise it.”
