How to make Garden

For the love of the lawn

2 min read

A nicely appointed and manicured lawn is one of the most pleasing parts of a garden. The beauty of grass is that it is an incredibly hardy plant that needs little in the way of attention and care. However, that is not to say that the lawn can just be left to its own devices. At the very least, it will need a regular cutting, and a Mountfield is one of the best mowers for this. It’s why suppliers like www.diyspareparts.com/parts/mountfield/ keep plenty of Mountfield Spares in stock as owners are loath to get rid of them.

The key to success with any lawn is to make sure that it is laid correctly in the first place. Lawns like to be level and enjoy a good bit of drainage. Grass is not keen on puddles and sodden areas. These overly wet patches encourage the growth of moss and other stifling plants that create difficult growing conditions for the grass. It also allows for spores from weeds like dandelions, buttercups and daisies to become established. This is fine if you want a meadow look but not for a good old fashioned traditional English lawn.

This fine square of green can also be your best friend in the back garden too. A nice bit of turf will stand you in good stead if you want to have a charming garden party. Grass is quite happy to be sat on and can be a comfy place to rest your head after a heavy session of BBQing and socialising with friends. It also makes for a cracking croquet match if you want the fun to continue. Croquet and lawns were made for each other.

Whatever you decide to do with the lawn, it still needs to have some care lavished on it from time to time. A bit of feed now and again is always a good idea. It doesn’t need huge amounts of nutrients, it can kind of take care of itself, but it’s nice to give it a helping hand from time to time.

To illustrate that point, you’ll notice that, at times, the lawn might go a bit brown if we’ve had a dry spell. There is no reason to panic. This is just the lawn going dormant. It will soon come back the moment we get some rain. However, if you do want to bring the green back, then a quick splash of water will have it looking lush again.
