Lawn in bad condition

Sarah Emerson asked 11 years ago

Never got around to doing final cut on grass last autumn, so long grass, winter and snow means the lawn is now wrecked. It’s muddy, patchy and bare in places, loads of weeds have come up too. What can I do to get a lovely lawn for summer?

Mow the grass without delay, taking two cuts if necessary, the first one at highest cutting height and the second at the second lowest or middle cutting height, whatever is normal.

You may have to leave off the grass-catcher to do this and rake up the grass mowings.

 Feed with spring lawn feed.

Apply lawn weedkiller in May.

Mow every week.
