    7 tips for looking after your lawn in winter.

    Feed your lawn

    The best solution is to apply some iron and seaweed (in liquid form) to your lawn. This tonic for turf helps to reduce plant stress, and hardens grass to protect it throughout the colder months.

    Keep of the lawn

    Try to rest the lawn as much as possible during winter by keeping of the grass. If practical don’t go on it when wet or frosty. As grass is not actively growing during this time, it will not repair itself if damaged until the spring.

    Don’t mow the lawn

    During the winter your lawn should stop growing and therefore...

    How to mow your lawn – Tip 3 – Vary Your Mowing Patterns

    Each time you mow your grass, mow it in a different direction to the last time. Let's face it, we all get into the habit of mowing our lawns the same way everytime.

    When you always cut your lawn using the same mowing pattern, your grass learns which direction it’s being cut from and begins to lean in the direction you mow.

    By varying the mowing pattern, and thus the direction you cut the grass in, you help avoid forming ruts in the lawn.

    The benefit is that the grass will stand up nice and tall since it will be mowed from all different dir...

    How to mow your lawn – Tip 2 – Mow a dry lawn

    The best time of day to cut your grass is in the early evening. Mowing your lawn at the peak of day, when temperatures are highest, stresses both the lawn and the mower.

    If you wait until the early evening, the lawn is usually dry (unless it has rained during the day), the sun is not as strong, and the grass will have plenty time to recover before the next afternoon’s heat arrives.

    Even if it hasn’t rained, lawns are usually wet in the morning because of moisture from dew or fog.

    If it does rain, wait for your lawn to dry before mowing, ...

    How to mow your lawn – Tip 1 - Set your lawn mower high

    The grass cutting season in the UK typically starts around mid-March to early April when the weather begins to get a little warmer, which in turn encourages the grass to grow.

    The grass cutting season generally ends in October when the temperature begins to decline and grass growth slows down.

    These dates will vary each year depending on the weather and area in the country you live in.

    The golden rule of mowing your lawn is to only cut the top 1/3 of the grass blades at any one time, even if this means you have to cut the grass again after s...

    Spring Time Lawn Care

    Spring is an important time of the year to start looking after your lawn.

    After the winter period it needs looking after to give your lawn a good start.

    As the grass starts to grow after its winter sleep, it’s important to set your mower on a higher setting so only cutting the top off the grass over the next few weeks of mowing.

    This will help the grass to grow quicker and after a few weeks you can set your mower back down to a lower setting.

    The aim should be to keep it at the same height all through spring. For most lawns this should be...

  • Measuring Your Lawn

    Measuring Your Lawn

    Before ordering your garden turf, it is important to measure the dimensions of the lawn correctly to ensure you don’t underspend or overspend on your order. Although garden lawns come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, they can all be measured accurately using the following method.

    Firstly, you should try and measure your lawn by dividing it into several smaller squares or rectangles to calculate the total surface area of the lawn itself (especially if the lawn is an odd shape or designed in an “L” formation). It is important to...

  • Ground Preparation for laying grass turf

    Ground Preparation for laying grass turf

    Having supplied and installed thousands of rolls of lawn turf in the Nottinghamshire area, we have developed an important ground preparation process to guarantee your new lawn turf is laid successfully. Without the correct preparation, your new lawn will fail to reach its full potential and could potentially die off soon afterwards.

    Firstly, our team will use a cultivating machine to clear any stones, vegetation or other types of debris to produce a smooth and even surface on which to lay the turf. A rolling machine will then be used to determ...

    Laying The Grass Turf

    Once the ground has been levelled and correctly prepared, the new lawn can be laid. You should never walk on newly laid garden turf, which is why we use wooden planks and boards when working on site, avoiding any damage to the ground surface or the garden turf itself.

    Firstly, strips of turf are laid around the perimeter of the lawn. The next strips are then added across the longest straight section before continuing across the lawn in a brickwork pattern.

    Every individual strip of garden turf is laid with care and precision, making sure the ...

    Watering Your New Lawn

    After your new lawn turf has been supplied and laid by our team of professionals, it will need a generous watering within half an hour of the installation process being completed. This is important to help the roots of the turf to become established and to effectively bond with the topsoil beneath.

    Using a sprinkler system connected to the end of a hosepipe will ensure the water will be spread evenly and consistently across the entire surface area of your lawn.

    The watering process needs to be carried out once a day, every day, for the first ...

    Lawn Aftercare

    After your new lawn has been laid, it is important to care for it accordingly to help it reach its full potential. Once the roots of the lawn have been established and have started to “knit” with the topsoil beneath it, the grass should not be left to grow for too long before an initial cutting.

    If the grass grows too long too early, then sunlight may be prohibited from reaching the base of the grass roots, which may stump future growth of the turf.

    We recommend that your lawn mower is set to the maximum height the first few times you mow...
