What is a good lawn feed please? I've always ever used Evergreen 4in1 before. I don't want to use this just now as my lawn is quite good, without any moss or weeds, so I just want to feed it. I've done all the raking, scarifying and hollow tining as well, so my lawn just needs some maintaining. Thanks

There is no reason why you can't use feed and weed again. The "weed and moss killer" will simply dissolve and not do anything.

Otherwise, get something like Aftercut 3 day green which is a pure lawn feed.

Personally I use Aftercut All-in-One but these are all much of the same anyway.

You're all going to seriously hate me for this but...£1 shop do a liquid lawn feed, has worked well and greens the lawn nicely.

I do need to use weed and feed though really.

Go to a nursery and see if they stock a form of lawn sand, put it down every 6 weeks and your lawn will be nice and lush and green.

Thank guys. I've been researching your recommendations. I think I'll try Scott's Lawn Builder next as the reviews seem very good and consitently high on Amazon.

I use ferrous sulphate that I dissolve and apply with a watering can. It helps green up the lawn. Some summer fertiliser will also help nourish the grass.

Can I ask which of the Vitax Green Up products you use? Didn't realise there were different ones until I went looking.

After trial and error, I use this one in summer:


It's an easy liquid feed. 18% nitrogen.

I also have Q4 powder, but thats better for repeat
flowers



Not sure how much is marketing hyperbole vs technology, but the Green Up liquid apparently deploys its nutrients better at grassroots level, and comes from greenkeeping.



Happy with the results anyway. I also use ferrous sulphate in Autumn to raise acidity of soil to deter worms and moss.

With all of these things, avoiding over application is key. Never add 'that bit more' of fertilizers. I have chemically burned lawn before doing this.
