2. Lawn Care All grasses are now going to start growing faster as it warms up so it's a great time to start getting your lawn back in order. Weeds: Over winter weeds, prickles and winter grass can start taking over so this is a problem to address before they get out of hand. Sprinklers: Cut around your sprinklers so they have some space around them. Aerate Soil: Aerating your soil will help air, water and nutrients to be absorbed into the soil which helps strengthen grass roots. Fertilise: Spring is the time to fertilise your lawn, helping new growth and stronger roots for summer. Dethatch: "Spongey" lawn is a sign of thatching which can be fixed by mowing back to the lawns runners. This is best done by professional lawn experts.

3. Herbs & Vegies It's time to get all those wonderful herbs and vegies planted in your vegie patch! If it's overgrown turn the soil over, areate it, add some organic compost and biochar. Then plant some seeds and/or seedlings, mulch and then water in with some organic worm tea to add not only nutrients and microbes but also earthworm eggs into the soil.
4. Fertilise Now the rains are starting to ease its a great time to top up the garden with some nutrients to all your plants and lawns. We recommend using an organic locally produced worm tea for the whole garden. The beauty of worm tea is it's a full circle recycling system. Using food waste & organic matter fed to worms and then worm tea is produced by inoculating worm castings (worm poo). The end product "Worm Tea" is rich in nutrients, microbes and worm eggs which is the best organic liquid fertiliser for your garden. When using Worm tea your not just helping your garden your helping the environment.
5. Pest Control Protect your garden from pests like snails, aphids, scale, cabbage moths and many more. There's many organic pesticides out there, even D.I.Y homemade mixes that you can use to help prevent pest infestation in your garden. Also look at companion planting around your herbs and vegies to help prevent pest infestation.
