The best way to get your lawn ready for summer is to feed it in spring. It will not only look green it will also be stronger against diseases, patchiness, moss and weeds. It will also help toughen it up for the onslaught of activities it's going to endure when the weather warms up.
As grass doesn't flower, it needs a different type of fertiliser from other garden plants - it's all about encouraging the 'leaves'. And with so many fertilisers on the nursery shelves designed especially for lawns, it can be confusing to know what each one does and which is the product for you. But don't worry, here we'll explain what they do and how to choose what's right for your lawn.
