Fertilizing Grass In The Spring

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Spring time is nearly here, meaning if you’re an avid gardener you should start preparing work in your garden before the Summer months, so you can enjoy in peace. Today we discuss fertilizing your grass so weeds don’t grow during the most important time of the year.

How much fertilizer should you apply? Well this all depends on the severity factor of your weed problem, if there is a problem. Don’t forget that fertilizer can also help the grass in your lawn grow back thick, but also be aware that the substance can damage the grass if not used properly.

We understand that there are many different fertilizers available on the market, and as it’s early in the season we recommend a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer. Don’t add more than 0.45 kg of nitrogen per every 1000 square feet.

The decking spot in one’s yard can be a great place to see as it will create a more detailed and visually-attractive surface for anyone to enjoy holding. However, it needs to be planned with care to ensure that it will work out right. There are many points for planning such a deck that must be used to get a space like this to be as attractive as it can be.

Get a Sketch Ready

The first point will be to see that a sketch is prepared as needed. A good sketch can include a layout of the ending and starting points for a deck plus the areas where the deck’s materials are to be spread or layered as required. The process for getting such a space ready can be difficult at times but it can be worthwhile if it is all just done properly.

Check the DPC

It is critical when working with decking items to keep the top level at least 150mm under the DPC or damp proof course. This is to ensure that the deck will comply with the regulations that have to be met on a particular building. The DPC must be measured and analysed right so the deck will be ready for use and will not obstruct any surfaces. (more…)
