As the ground warms up and your grass starts growing again, spring is the ideal time to sow new seed, scarify your lawn and gradually recover the perfect lawn you had last summer.
Make the first cut of the new year
Make sure the grass is dry and that you make the first cut of the grass on the highest cutting height. Never cut more than a third of the grass blade off in one go to avoid over stressing the grass. Cutting the grass before scarifying will also help loosen any thick patches of thatch, making it easier to remove thatch when you scarify the lawn.
Gradually reduce the cutting height
Gradually reduce the cutting height throughout the month and the beginning of the next, until you reach your preferred grass height.
Use moss and weed killer
Lay any weed or moss killer on your lawn where needed to make removal easier later on. Consider adding a spring fertiliser to the lawn to help rejuvenate it and promote fresh growth. Read our article for more information on how to remove moss
