Summer is all about enjoying your garden and making the most of outside space, whether sitting in the sunshine listening to the tennis (yes, Wimbledon is back!), hosting a BBQ for family and friends or playing games with the children!
Keep your lawn in tip-top condition with these simple tips –
- Mow regularly (twice a week unless there are prolonged periods of drought, then reduce to once)
- Water well during dry spells (if possible use water from a water butt). Don’t worry if an established lawn goes brown, it’s not dead, it will re-green up again when it rains!
- Feed and condition – help keep your lawn green and healthy with some TLC! We recommend Westland Aftercut All In One – it’s a triple action lawn treatment that greens, feeds and controls moss and weeds.
- Keep the edges neatly trimmed after mowing to stop the grass growing into your borders.
St John's Top Tip – during the summer months if you leave the cuttings on your lawn as they decompose they will release up to 30% of the required nutrients and also help to keep in moisture during hot spells. Once cuttings have been removed remember to feed.
