Maintenance

Lawn maintenance

Mowing on a regular basis is crucial for a beautiful lawn. Gather the clippings (exception: robotic lawn mower). The more often you mow the lawn, the denser the lawn becomes.

-

The second most important maintenance measure is the appropriate fertiliser: Depending on the use of the lawn, a long-term fertiliser is applied once in the spring or several times a year, using products that are tailored exactly to meet the required needs.

-

Autumn fertilisation strengthens the lawn for the winter.

-

Control of fungal diseases or parasites, if necessary, with the use of appropriate products. Follow the instructions carefully.

Good to know

Mowing the lawn

The ideal mowing height for a house lawn is 4 – 5 cm. As soon as the grass is 6 – 8 cm high, it is shortened by a third of its total length. Only mower blades that are sharpened well result in a clean cut.

Irrigation

Well-established lawns only need to be watered if there is a persistent drought. If the grass no longer straightens itself after being walked on, it needs water. 15 – 20 mm (= 15 – 20 l/m²) is the ideal amount, and lasts for little over a week.

Weeds

Weeds especially grow in places where there are gaps in the lawn. Weeds have little chance to survive on well-kept lawns.
