Summer Lawn Care

Summer Lawn CareMore than 20,000 people descended on Stonehenge to greet the sunrise on the longest day of the year.

Cloudy skies prevented the gathering of pagans, druids and partygoers, from basking in the sun as they marked the summer solstice.

By sunset last night, 2,000 people had arrived at the stone circle to begin an overnight vigil. Their numbers swelled before the sun reappeared just before 5am.

The celebrations came ahead of a 'historic moment' in the ancient Wiltshire site's £27million transformation, where a nearby road will be closed and grassed over to restore one of the key approaches to the stones.

Police made 22 arrests during the night, mainly for drug offences, which is fewer than in previous years. They praised the 'positive, friendly atmosphere' of the celebrations.

If you are not planning to celebrate summer by doning your pagan outfits, why not consider the following lawn tasks this weekend?

Fertilise your lawn again

Control any lawn weeds

Trim your lawn edges

Lightly scarify your lawn

Top dress your lawn to restore any micro levels

Over seed your lawn with grass seed to thicken up the sward

Sharpen your mower blade

Change the oil in your mower

Make any minor repairs with seed or turf
