Spring Lawn Care Tips | Yates Lawn Experts

Spring is one of the busiest times in the garden. Here are a range of things to be on the look out for with your lawn.
Beginner Intermediate Advanced


Time to fertilise lawns with Yates Dynamic Lifter Concentrated Lawn Food. The rich organic matter will help improve the soil and the added nutrients give a quick green up. Rainy weather is ideal for fertilising lawns.


Weed control

Control broadleaf weeds in lawns, like dandelion, capeweed and thistles, in kikuyu and couch lawns with Yates Weed'n'Feed and with Yates BuffaloPro in buffalo lawns. Control them now before they have a chance to set seed.


Insect control

Apply Yates Baythroid Advanced Insect Killer for Lawns to control adult African Black Beetle. The larvae of this beetle, curl grub, chew through grass roots, creating dead and dying patches and lawn that can be rolled back like a carpet. 



Soil underneath lawns can become water repellent, particularly when the weather has been dry. This means that moisture can’t effectively reach the lawn’s roots. Treat the soil with an easy hose-on application of Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter to help break down the waxy, water repellent soil layer and make the moist of any rainfall or watering.
