Lawn Care An Easy Guide To A Better Lawn
Posted on 01/02/2019
There are a few simple things we can all do to help our lawns look better and stay healthy.
Cut your lawn often so you only remove small amounts of grass at once (never more than a third at a time). Otherwise if you cut too much at once the grass plant will be put under stress. If your lawn is too long cut more frequently until you have your desired height.
Don’t cut your lawn too short! It will handle environmental impacts better if left a bit longer (25mm plus). Weeds wont be such a problem as the grass will out compete them.
Keep off when wet. This is particularly a problem during the winter when growth is minimal. This compacts the soil forcing air out and stopping water and nutrients flowing to the roots.
Trim the edges, this gives a really neat appearance and stops the lawn merging with the flowers.
