Lawn Care Questions

Q: I now have only a small lawn and need to get a mower. What recommendations do you have for a bumpy but small lawn?

A: You could have a hand power mower although you may need to address the issue of a very bumpy lawn whatever mower you have.
Mowing your lawn regularly is important, longer grass will be harder to cut with a push mower.

 

Q: My local golf course looks amazing. How can I get my lawn to look like this?

A: Their specific routine may be slightly different to this - but here's one used by a golf club - They water heavily (about 30 - 45 minutes) twice a week. Fertilize
every two weeks and mow the lawn to about three inches.
The heavy watering and fertilization will encourage the grass to grow deep roots making it harder for weeds to get established or survive.
This may be too regular a feeding regime for a domestic lawn, but rolawn direct have lots of information about feeding your lawn

Q: My new lawn looks rather thin and uneven, what can I do?

A: It may be some areas were underseeded. You can apply more seed in these areas after raking them. You may need to weed the lawn to remove those weeds which are competing.
If soil has settled then you may need to fix this too. You can apply topsoil if it's not too bad or in very sunken areas you will need to repatch areas by digging and reseeding.
Check for drainage too in these areas.
Watch out for your mower being set too low - if it scalps the grass it may be damaging the grass but allowing more air and light for weeds. You can try raising the blades in these areas.

Q: how often should I mow my lawn?

A: As often as it needs it. Don't leave it too long between cuts once the cutting season has started though.
