Lawn Care in Summer

Well, summer this year has not been a difficult one, as far as keeping a good lawn healthy. Plenty of rainfall at regular intervals has meant green lawns throughout and not much room for weeds to grow in those bare patches. However, it will be wise not to have the blades too low so that the lawn dries out and mowing often, rather than aggresively, will lead to a better looking grassed area in the garden.

A small dressing of lawn fertiliser before expected rain will likely have an exciting response. If new lawns are to be laid, March and April are the best two months to obtain good germination of seed.So, now is the time to start getting ready by breaking up the soil and bringing in new topsoil if necessary. Where areas are difficult to break-up because of heavy clay use Gypsum.
