Don’s Tips: Lawns



This is shaping up to be a loooong, hot summer ahead, so you should get onto your lawn right away.

The weather is so warm in most areas that lawns sprung into growth a month early.

Fertilise all lawns now with a slow release lawn food – preferably with a wetting agent: Scotts Lawn Builder in the blue packet is excellent.

Keep the water up to the lawn if the weather stays dry.

Remember the basic lawn rules:

• Never park a car on a lawn – not even to wash it.

• Put paths in lawns to avoid worn goat tracks forming.

• But most important of all: Neatly trimmed edges make even a crook lawn look good.

Hooroo! Don.
