The 12-Week Lawn Transformation Plan

Week 1: Evaluate Your Lawn's Health

Before you start, take a good look at your lawn and identify problem areas such as uneven ground, patches, weeds, or moss. Take note of these issues and formulate a plan to tackle them.

Week 2-4: Scarify Your Lawn

Scarifying is the process of removing thatch (dead grass, moss, and debris) from your lawn. This helps improve aeration and drainage. Aerate your lawn by using a scarifier or a garden fork to poke holes about 4 inches deep in the ground. For our DIY enthusiasts, a range of manual scarifiers can be found in most local garden centres.

Week 5: Feed Your Lawn

Choose a high-quality lawn feed to provide essential nutrients for your grass. Apply the lawn feed in the right quantities as per the manufacturer's guidelines. Don’t forget to water your lawn regularly, especially during dry spells. This will ensure that the nutrients are absorbed effectively.

Week 6: Tackle Weed Growth

Pull out any large weeds by hand or use a suitable weedkiller. Selective broadleaf weedkillers, specifically designed for lawns, will not harm your grass. Always follow the instructions on the packaging, and within a couple of weeks, you should see improvement in weed control.

Week 7: Seed and Fill in Patches

For bare patches, lightly rake the soil to create a suitable seedbed. Then, sprinkle grass seed evenly across the patch. Lightly rake over the area to cover the seeds and water thoroughly. Make sure to water the patched areas daily to help the new grass establish roots.

Week 8-11: Mow and Maintain

Mow your lawn regularly, maintaining a height of around 2-3 inches (5-7.5cm). This will allow your lawn to establish a healthy root system. Taller grass can help prevent weeds and encourage thicker growth.

Week 12: Sit Back and Enjoy Your Lawn

After 12 weeks of hard work, you should see a significant improvement in your lawn's overall health and quality. To keep your lawn looking its best, maintain regular mowing, feeding, and weeding schedules.
