The Lawn!

May 20, 2010

Regular sulfate of ammonia spread over the lawn plus spot targeting of the same stuff on flat leaf weeds has made a big difference – now looks somewhat loved. Now tackling moss which is a big problem, particularly coming into winter. Sulfate of iron does the job but of course leaves big dead patches. Have read that I am supposed to de-thatch the lawn and also core it to improve drainage – and to top it off I have some large holes appearing in the lawn – could that be grass grub? Does look good when freshly mown but not as low maintenance as I had hoped – and that is the front lawn – the back lawn is bigger and much shabbier – lumpy and gets completely waterlogged.
