Tackle lawn care now to 'strengthen' grass ready for winter – 'combats diseases'

Fertilise the lawn

Fertilising the lawn in autumn will supply grass with the essential nutrients it needs to “strengthen itself for winter”.

The experts said: “As autumn progresses, damp, still conditions can lead to diseases such as fusarium patch (snow mould infection).

“Applying an autumn lawn feed such as slow release autumn and winter fertiliser or quick release autumn and winter fertiliser in early autumn will help combat these by strengthening the grass plants as well as giving your lawn an attractive green colour.”

One of the key signs of snow mould is small patches of yellowish, dying grass that later turns brown.
