How to care for lawns in fall and winter: Household hacks for “perfectly green grass”
Winter weather can be a struggle for those trying to keep their lawns healthy due to lack of sunlight and high rainfall. With this in mind, the outdoor experts at GardenBuildingsDirect.co.uk have revealed how to make gardens stand out from the crowd with a pristine lawn all year round.
From spoon-feeding grass with fertilizer to mowing lawns every three weeks (even in frosty weather), there are many ways gardeners can keep their lawn in good shape in tougher conditions.
A spokesperson for Garden Buildings Direct said: “It is important for gardeners to look after their grass during the winter months as the changes in weather can create damaging conditions for the soil and lead to an unpleasant appearance.
“Maintenance is key to keeping your grass green in the colder months, but it’s also important to use these simple methods if you want to achieve perfectly green grass.
“We’ve found six helpful ways for homeowners to revitalize the look of their yard and make the grass greener than ever.”

The experts said: “Here’s a surprising tip that will make your grass shine through the winter – sprinkling coffee grounds as a form of fertilizer releases hydrogen into the soil which provides useful nutrients to the soil.
“Make sure you rake it in so the soil goes directly into the soil and try to limit the amount you use as it can leave brown spots in the grass in some cases.”
Although it is standard for gardeners to remove weeds, the cold weather can prevent people from getting these jobs done.
Digging out the weeds around the grass can help keep the lawn fresh and healthy. If you use a spray to remove the weeds, be sure not to spray it on the grass as this can ruin the condition and it will stand out like a sore thumb in an otherwise green garden.

To achieve an eye-catching look and color in the garden, overlook the lawn. This helps to fill the holes in the grass and will help to thicken the consistency.
It’s also a great way to help build up patches in the grass and improve its overall appearance.
The experts added: “Increasing the amount of iron helps to increase the amount of nutrients in the grass and overtime darkens the color as it will help to improve the pH levels of the grass to prevent unpleasant color changes.”
