Perfect lawn ⋅ 365 days a year

Shady gardens are problematic.  Causing a thin mossy lawn.  Too little water in summer will also damage a lawn.  Undoing all your hard work.  And don’t mention kids or pets.

Achieving the perfect lawn can be a constant uphill struggle.  Ongoing lawn care is vital.   Poor growing conditions are generally costly and hard to overcome.  One reason artificial grass is becoming even more popular.

 

Shady gardens

Shady gardens lead to a thin mossy lawn.  Try to introduce as much light as possible into your garden.  Especially into shady areas of your garden.  Cut back any overhanging branches.  Reduce large conifers such as Leylandii.

Damp gardens

Damp gardens can be problematic for lawns.  Extreme can cause waterlogging.  Lawns quickly become a muddy soggy mess.  Common causes include clay and compacted soil.  Short term solutions include aeration and top-dressing with lawn sand. Long term solutions are more expensive.

Long term solutions include removing clay and creating drainage channels.  Adding a network of perforated drainage pipes.  Part filling the channels with shingle and free-draining soil.  And finally Re-turfing. Overall, a  messy process.  You’ll also need to to create an adequate drainage pit or soakaway.  For the excess water to flow into.  Sometimes hard achieve in a garden full of clay.

Dry gardens

Too many trees.  Gardens on a slope.  Lack of rain during the summer months.  All contribute to dry lawn.  Solutions include watering with a sprinkler.  Or a zonal professional irrigation system.  Installation can be costly and messy.  It involves trenching irrigation pipes and re-turfing.

Gardens on slopes 

Gardens with slopes and banks are difficult and dangerous cut.  Water can also be a problem.  With turf often drying out during the summer months.  And low areas becoming waterlogged in winter months.
