Your lawn will appreciate some winter TLC to help it face the busy season ahead. Make sure your soil is in tip-top shape and ensure it has enough nutrients to support all the upcoming growth.


It may be tempting to stop working on your lawn during winter due to the lacklustre appearance of your
lawn. However, if you put in good work during the cooler months, you can make your lawn look vibrant and healthy.

  • If you live in a warmer region, we recommend applying Wonder Organic Vita-Boost or for a liquid option, you can use Wondersol All Purpose to help offset the discolouration as temperatures drop.
  • If your lawn is greener come spring, it will return to peak condition faster.
  • If you are in an area of heavy frost, do not apply anything during this time.
  • Where soils are heavy, treat with Wonder Agricultural Lime. Mixing in some organic matter will also help restore the soil structure.


Keep grass shorter in winter, but not too short. Try to hit a height of about 5 cm or so – short enough so the possibility of disease is less likely, but tall enough so the roots are not exposed to frost.

guesswork. This solution can be easily applied by either a sprayer or watering can.
Mow regularly to prevent a build-up of thatch and remove clippings from the lawn. Water only in the mornings, to allow the lawn to dry off during the day.
