Having chickens take up residency in your yard has a range of benefits - from eating pests that can damage your plants and lawn to providing free, nutrient rich fertiliser.
One of the most common misconceptions around lawn is that Winter is a no-go zone for any kind of turf laying, lawn maintenance or turf care. Cooler temperatures do not mean that any turf related duties can be stuffed in storage until Spring shows itself, however it is important you adapt your plans to match your local seasons.
As the seasons turn colder and your lawn turns to a dormant or semi-dormant state, it is important to get on top of what may be a future infestation. Lawn grubs or beetles are a major pest that can cause untold damage to your lawn. Thankfully they are (much like your lawn) mostly dormant during the colder months, but it's never too early to ensure your lawn is as healthy and pest free as possible.
One of the most frequent mistakes people make around their turf is that Winter is the season in which it can be ignored entirely. Common belief is that lawns die-off or go dormant and can simply be ignored until Spring, when it will bounce back good as new. Keeping your lawn healthy is a year-round process, and with a bit of care and attention your lawn can be the cream of the crop come Spring.
Just because the weather has cooled down doesn’t mean that the maintenance of your lawn and gardens should stop. Some jobs may be better suited to the warmer months, but regular support and garden upkeep is essential for prolonged preservation of a healthy and vibrant backyard. Below is a list of top tools and tips to keep your green thumb busy in the winter months.
