Check out our top tips below to keep your garden lawn looking great;
Tip 1: Rid your lawn of moss
Moss is your grassed lawns arch nemesis. To remove the moss simply use a rake to pull it up (along with any dead grass). The best time to do this during Spring.
Raking and removing moss regularly is what’s needed in your battle to keep your turf looking luscious and staying healthy. If you need to, use a fork to really weed out the areas where the moss is concentrated.
Tip 2: Seed areas that have dead spots
Once raked and prepares, use a garden fork to loosen the soil that has become hard. Then level the soil and sprinkle some good quality grass seeds.
Once seeded, add some high quality topsoil (see our range here) and then simply water as often as possible for the next 2 or 3 weeks.
Try not to leave dead or empty spots too long because weeds just love to root in those empty spaces!

Tip 4. How to save a water logged lawn
If you have water logging, or even frost damage from the winter months – grab a garden fork, use it to punch holes into the ground – this will allow oxygen into your root system.
Tip 5: Mow often
To keep a healthy root system and a luscious, healthy looking grass, you should aim to mow your lawn every two weeks.
Most people like to catch cut grass and dispose of it, but leaving a few grass clippings on the law can deliver a boost of nutrients into the grass and they degrade quickly.
When Autumn is upon us, get your mower, select the lowest cutting setting and give your garden grass a close cut before the cold, harsh winter materialises. This will allow your grass to dry out quicker in the Spring.
