Lawn Maintenance Calendar
January/February - Keep off lawn except to brush off leaves and any worm casts
March - Kawn maintenace begins in this month. Rake or scarify the lawn hard. This will remove and break up layers of dead matted grass and weeds. Spike the ground with a fork to a depth of 6 inches to eliminate compaction. Lastly top dress the lawn with a mix of sand, compost and loam. This will help denser growth and level out minor hollows.
April - Where necessary apply a spring feed and start weed control. Where moss is a problem apply a moss killer. You may need to mow the lawn up to weekly. Good month for reseeding
May - You will need to cut more often. Best month for weed control .Either dig out large weeds or spray off.
June - Amount of cutting will depend on the weather. If long dry spell consider raising height of mower so it is not cut too short.
July/August - Continue to mow regularly when appropriate.
September - Another good month for reseeding. Spike the ground as in the spring and consider applying a top dressing.
October - Mowing will stop this month. Do not cut shorter than 1 inch. Take the opportunity to level out any bumps. Clear away any leaves.
November/December - Clear leaves and brush away worm casts.
