You can think back to the summer days, maybe relaxing in your garden shed, or sitting on the patio having a barbecue with friends. You can switch on the TV and see the cricket with its pristine playing field or watch the tennis at Wimbledon on the immaculate lawns and thinking how much you would like your 14X10 garden lawn to look like that. All seems a long time ago at the moment.
Ratedpeople.com stated recently, in their view, that if you want to keep your garden looking good and to ensure the lawn is healthy and vigorous for the Spring then you must NOT lock up your garden sheds through the winter. Your garden tools will be needed. They state that you can do simple things yourself like raking up the leaf debris which has fallen off nearby trees.
This will ensure the maximum amount of sunshine for the lawn. They say that mowing the lawn can be beneficial but I personally don’t take that view. I feel that the less you walk in the garden on the grass the better as you don’t walk to compact the grass any more than necessary.
They also suggest leaving grass clippings on the grass so they can act as a kind of fertiliser as they give off valuable nutrients. They believe that this action will help the lawn shoot faster in the Spring. Again I think you need to be a little careful in this respect. You could collect the grass clippings and store them behind your 7×3 shed. You could also use garden clippings as mulch around your plants to help protect from the frost. This will give your shed purpose besides keeping your garden tools secure and dry.
A spokesperson at RatedPeople said that leaving a small layer of grass cuttings on your garden lawn is good practice to help preserve the lawn as well as ensuring the level of thatch is kept under control. Only recently a national paper recommended that gardeners use these wet weather conditions to uproot unwanted weeds. As I say I think the lawn in your garden is best not walked on so that the ground does not becomes too compacted.
My garden, which is quite small at 7 x 3 (square metres), is looked after by a regular monthly expert contractor and they put weed killer and garden lawn feed on it at the correct time and they cover the area. This year I’ve paid extra so they come along to my garden and last week they scarified the grass. This meant raking out all the dead moss and leaves and giving the grass some room to breathe.
This was followed up this week with hollow-tine-aeration which sounds like a medical condition. This involved making thousands of holes in the lawn and this will help where the garden had become compacted. This procedure also allows air, moisture and nutrients to reach the roof of the grass which will enable the lawn to bloom in the summer. I was also told to keep my lawnmower in my garden shed until early spring, good news for my back.
