Why do our lawns go off colour?
The compound in our lawn which gives it that beautiful green colour is chlorophyll. Now before you start reminiscing about year 7 science we aren’t going to go into any great deal on that subject, because, well it’s just not that critical to the end story.
As temperatures drop off your lawn feels the soil temperature through its roots and starts to do a variety of things.
First of all, it slows or stops producing the green pigmentation, chlorophyll. As chlorophyll production reduces/stops it is slowly degraded and the lawn changes colour.
Where you are located will impact dramatically on the natural colour change of your lawn, warmer areas may see a slight drop in chlorophyll production while other areas will stop completely.
How do I stop this discolouration?
Well, as we mentioned it’s the loss of chlorophyll that is our major issue in colour degradation, so we aim to reverse this process and use some simple science to encourage the plant to create more chlorophyll. This can be achieved by applying a product like Lawn Play Enhance that contains a high percentage of iron, which stimulates chlorophyll development.
As winter deepens (June) or if you are in a particular cooler part of the country, you should consider using a lawn pigment like Lawn Play Verdant.
