Preparing the lawn for winter with autumn fertiliser

In early/mid-September, autumn fertiliser is the ideal winter preparation for your lawn before it goes into winter dormancy. When temperatures decrease and the light gets weaker, the lawn needs a little care again.

When fertilising the lawn, there are differences in that there are now more and more long-term lawn fertilisers and special autumn fertilisers on the market. There is therefore a wide range of fertilisers available.

Always use an autumn fertiliser with little nitrogen and a lot of potassium. This strengthens the cell walls and increases the salt content in the plant cells. Potassium thus reduces the freezing point of the cell sap and reduces frost damage. Generally, decorative lawns require slightly less fertiliser than lawns which are frequently walked on or a worn recreational lawn.
