Keith Treacy asked 13 years ago

I have a new lawn, when sowing I spread 0-7-30, it is coming along nicely but it has some yellow patches, what should I spread now to bring it nice and green. Also, is it safe to spray a new lawn for dock leaves at this time that have grown and what would you recommend.

Yellow patches in a new lawn can be a sign of poor soil, uneven feeding, or excessive drainage.

You can apply a light dressing of high-nitrogen fertiliser to give a boost to the grass, about 20g per square metre would be enough. If this is a small area, use an autumn lawn feed, if it is a large area, use sulphate of ammonia or other high-nitrogen feed.

Beging mowing and leave weed control until May.
