During colder months grass growth virtually stops. As a result no nutrients are being absorbed by the grass plants making your lawn more vulnerable to a range of conditions and fungal diseases. All of these diseases occur naturally and will lead to patchiness within a lawn. Recovery will not be seen until the next spring growing season.
If your lawn tends to die off during the winter there may be an underlying problem such as water logging, poor soil structure, compacted soils, heavy surrounding vegetation or a lack of quality lawn fertiliser. All of these cause a lawn to be under stress and more susceptible to disease. Consequently a good all year round maintenance regime is all important. Read more about Lawn Pests and Diseases.
One of the most important lawn maintenance actions is to apply a spring application of lawn fertiliser. Often your lawn will grow away from any winter die back.↑ back to top
