Regular feeding of your lawn will help it look great by encouraging the grass to become thicker and greener as well as healthier. This means there is less chance of weeds and moss being able to take over as it will be harder for weeds and moss to get through thick healthy grass.
Different feeds contain different nutrients, which your lawn needs at different times of the year. A nitrogen-based fertiliser is essential in spring and early summer as the nitrogen encourages lush green growth whereas one with less nitrogen but containing phosphates and potassium should be used in autumn as these nutrients help strengthen the grass roots and help the lawn make it through the winter.
Which lawn feed should I use?
As mentioned above, make sure you use a lawn feed with nitrogen in the spring and early summer. This is essential to help green up your lawn and to encourage strong, healthy growth.
If you need your lawn to be as green as possible in as short a time as possible, then choose a feed with high levels of nitrogen such as Miracle-Gro Fast Green Spray & Feed. This gets to work in just 24 hours and is perfect for occasional uses such as an outdoor party. Some lawn treatments just feed your lawn and are ideal if your lawn is weed and moss free, but others have added ingredients such as weed killers and/or moss killers.
