Improving your lawns

Check your lawn regularly for problems and keep it well trimmed over the spring and summer. Keep your lawn healthy, lush and green.

  • After mowing trim overhanging edges with edging shears.
  • Re-define edges each spring with a half-moon edging tool.
  • Repair damaged edges by removing a rectangle of turf with a spade and replacing with the damaged edge facing the lawn.
  • Make lawns stronger by regular feeding.
  • Fill lawn hollows by making an H-shape cut with a spade and lifting back two flaps. Fill depression with topsoil.
  • Keep on top of weeds by removing them with a daisy grubber tool.
  • Mow regularly to keep grass healthy.
  • Lay stepping-stones to prevent paths becoming worn across your your lawn.
