Six tips for taking care of your Lawn
Feed – Like us humans, all plants including grass need to be fed regularly to thrive.
Water – While not always a problem in Scotland, during good weather and spells of dryness your lawn may need a water. This is especially important for young lawns and to ensure new grass seed grows successfully.
Aerate - Compacted ground prevents grass growing well and can lead to bare patches in the summer. Aerate the soil by pushing a garden fork about 10cm deep into your lawn every 10cm and gently rocking back and forth on the fork handle. The prongs open up the soil, allowing the roots to breathe and encouraging the grass to regrow.
Weed – Remove weeds and moss as they can easily smother your lawn.
Mow – Regular mowing promotes new growth and encourages grass roots to spread which in turn helps block out weeds.
Seed – Tackle bald patches and fill out your lawn by sowing more grass seed. Depending on the quality of the soil below, you may need to add topsoil or sand during this process to achieve the best results.
