"Get ready... here comes Spring!"

It’s January, the start of another gardening year.

Traditionally  a month for looking forward when we can dream about what could be possible in the future. Whilst we cant control the weather, we can look forward to lighter nights and growing flowers, fruit and vegetables. All improved when set against a great back drop of a great looking lawn.

If you havent already, collect any dead leaves that have fallen  onto the lawn. If they are left, they can encourage weaken the grass leading to bare patches and the spread of pests and disease. Rake up or blow the leaves into heaps ready for composting.

Don’t forget to get the mower in for service early, and ensure to check that the blades are sharp.

If you’re looking at completing any repairs using seed, it’s still too cold for the proprietary grass seed to germinate, so be patient and apply for the first time during March when lawn soil has warmed considerably and the grass seed has the opportunity to germinate.

Keep off the grass while it is frosty or your footprints will be marked in the grass for several weeks.
