I was cutting the grass earlier this week in between the showers. I noticed that certain areas were wearing thin because of children playing, which is great to see. Lawns do tend to take a battering at this time of year so a bit of routine maintenance wouldn’t go a miss. Use a spring rake to remove moss that has built up and if you can be bothered to dig out perennial weeds this should be done as well. If you enjoy cutting the grass then apply an organic fertiliser, following the instructions on the box. Don’t fret it there are bald patches appearing where the children play as we can sort those out later at the end of summer.
