Autumn is not the time to forget about your lawn – it still needs your attention, particularly if it’s going to head into winter being strong and healthy. As the growing phase slows any weeds are offered the opportunity to take over. Having a thick, lush and healthy lawn will limit the weeds’ ability to gain ground. Take a regular walk around your lawn and pull out any weeds you find by hand. If a full-on invasion takes place, treat with the appropriate herbicide now to allow time for the weeds to die and your lawn to bounce back before the cooler months arrive.
