After the cold, damp winter months your lawn will most likely be ready for a good spring lawn renovation program, this will help to produce a green and healthy lawn during the summer when you want your lawn to look at it's best.
After a wet and dreary winter many lawns are looking a bit worse for wear. The heavy rainfall, combined with low light levels, will have enabled moss to proliferate at the expense of the grass.
You may have also noticed some yellowing in the turf; this is due to a lack of chlorophyll, known as Chlorosis. Chlorosis happens when turf is unable to photosynthesise because of low light levels
and waterlogged conditions. Both moss and chlorosis can be easily dealt with through a good spring renovation programme.
A comprehensive renovation would commence with a treatment to control the moss, then scarify to remove the moss and control excess organic matter, followed by seeding to ensure that the area is dominated by grass and not moss. Applying a top dressing after seeding will level out dips/hollows and ensure there is good seed to soil contact for maximum germination. Then finish off with a fertiliser application using a high-quality fertiliser to encourage the existing grass and get the new seeds off to the best start. Solid or hollow tine aeration can also help the renovation process.

The key to a healthy looking lawn in the Summer is in the preparation and treatment that it receives in Spring.
As the weather warms up from Spring your grass will start to grow more quickly and will need to be cut more often. However during very dry and hot spells the grass growth slows and should only be cut as and when needed. If possible during drought conditions try not to cut the grass at all but if this becomes necessary then cut on the highest setting available on your mower. This will assist the grass to retain moisture and help shield the soil from the sun.
