Putting the puzzle together

Grass Clippings  - Grass PuzzleThe  subject of lawns and their care puzzle many a lawn owner.  Many are simply scared of their lawn.

Lots of lawn owners perform the religious tasks of feeding their lawn in the spring time but not throughout the rest of the year. 

Some respect the mechanical operations such as mowing, scarification and aeration are important but many get these tasks in the incorrect order when performing a lawn renovation programme.  It is easy to grow grass, the hardest part is turning the grass into a lawn.

Factors affecting a lawn
  1. Mowing height and frequency
  2. Not feeding it often enough like every three months
  3. Being scared of it
  4. Light and shade lines
  5. Topography such as a north facing lawn
  6. Traffic from children, football goals and dogs and general wear
  7. Owners being reactive with it when little and often is the key
  8. More weeds and moss than turf grasses, all are indicators that your lawn is being neglected
  9. Poor advice received
  10. Rarely over seeding it - grasses do not last forever
  11. Undiagnosed lawn weeds, lawn pests and lawn disease
  12. New lawns need care too
  13. Trying to grow grass in an area of the garden when it clearly refuses to grow
