Mow it3MowingRolawn Medallion® turf is used to a cut height of 25mm (1") and Rolawn Minster Pro® turf 12mm (½") . You should aim for the same, taking no more than one third of the grass blade length at any one time. Adjust how often you mow your lawn dependent on how quickly the grass grows. In the peak growing seasons frequent mowing can dramatically enhance your lawn's appearance.If your lawn becomes too long, gradually bring it back down to the correct height. Mowing a lawn from 75mm (3") down to 25mm (1") in one cut will result in a weak, sparse, pale lawn. Whatever type of mower you have it must be well maintained, with blades sharpened at least once a year.FeedingIt is vital your lawn receives suffi cient nutrients. Rolawn's range of lawn fertilisers promote a healthy, green and hardwearing lawn.Rolawn GroRight® Lawn Fertiliser Weed & Moss Killer can be applied any time between late spring and early autumn, when grass and weeds are actively growing.Rolawn GroRight® Autumn Lawn Food should ideally be applied in early autumn (September) just before rainfall.Broadleaf weed treatmentTreat broadleaf weeds with a suitable selective herbicide or an all-in-one treatment, such as Rolawn GroRight® Lawn Fertiliser, Weed & Moss Killer. Alternatively, you can weed them out using a knife or mechanical weeder, but make sure you get the root of the weed out.Careful maintenance is the key to a beautiful lawnThe appearance of your Rolawn lawn will be affected by the environment it is living in and the treatment it is receiving. A healthy lawn requires a balance of air, food, water and light. An appropriate maintenance programme helps to keep these elements in balance.
Enhance it4Dealing with mossIf you have moss in your lawn you will need to scarify it out to allow the grass plants to grow. Scarifi cation also reduces the build up of thatch, which stops water and air penetrating through to the soil and prevents dense grass growth.Apply a moss-killer such as Rolawn GroRight® Lawn Fertiliser, Weed & Moss Killer. Once the moss has turned brown/black, scarify using a spring-tine rake or a mechanical scarifi er. Only scarify if your lawn is more than 12 months old and the grass is actively growing.Over seedingOver seeding an established lawn is an essential part of annual lawn maintenance. It improves colour, helps fi ll in sparse or worn areas and gives your lawn a thicker, denser sward.We recommend a mix of Rolawn Medallion® Premium Lawn Seed and Lawn Topdressing brushed into the surface of the lawn. For ornamental lawns and in areas of shade we recommend over seeding with Rolawn Minster Pro® Ornamental Lawn Seed. This is a mix of shade and drought tolerant grasses, with a fi ne bladed leaf and rich green colour.TopdressingTopdressing your lawn is vital to retain a level surface, improve drainage and control the build up of thatch. It will enhance a lawn's appearance by stimulating new grass growth and increasing tolerance to wear and tear.Rolawn Lawn Topdressing is a high quality, sand based, multi-purpose lawn dressing, designed for use on Rolawn lawns. It can also be used to improve any utility lawn. It can be applied anytime, when the grass is actively growing. Apply at a rate of up to 3 litres/m2 and work it into the lawn's surface with a stiff brush or back of a rake.AeratingAerating helps to relieve compaction and assists with drainage.Use a garden fork or powered aerator in spring and autumn to spike your lawn, especially before applying a lawn fertiliser or topdressing.Other maintenance proceduresOther aftercare procedures for controlling pests and diseases should be undertaken to maintain the quality of the lawn.
