Incorrect use of fertiliser
Fertiliser is essential to healthy lawns, but incorrect use can “damage” grass blades.
The lawn experts said: “Applying too much fertiliser can damage the lawn and depending on the type of fertiliser, it can burn the grass. This will injure or destroy it.
“The burning is due to high levels of nitrogen typically found in lawn fertilisers, which makes the lawn brown and patchy and can lead to other types of disease or problems.”
The gardening experts advised using a slow release fertiliser, so the lawn doesn’t burn.
What’s more, make sure to test the soil first so gardeners can purchase the correct fertiliser to replace minerals that are lacking.
