We did a PH test on our lawn soil and it returned as 8.5PH. Is there anything we can do to take this level down to 6.5 or do we need to re dig and re sow our lawn? The lawn is 300metres sq.
I planted my new lawn last July 09, there was a alot of rain after planting, cold winter,dry spring. There is some bare spots and lawn is very yellow looking when cut now, growth is slow. Should I water the garden as the soil is very dry, what can be done for bare areas and should I give a spread of fertlizer to the garden?
My lawn is patchy and brown in one half . In March I put on a top dress of fertilizer/ compost / grass seed. I used Westland feed/ weed / moss killer in April and Westland Aftercut , after each cut. I treated the patchs with miracle grow patch miricle. It gets cut at least once weekly and watered during the dry spells. This formula usually works well for me but this year the result is poor. Any advice would be welcome.
I planted a new garden in March/April.Could you advise me as to where I could buy a greenhouse in Ireland? I am looking for a 10ft by 8ft.191The Lawn has grown reasonable well to about 6 cm but is patchy and lots of weeds are coming through. The back garden is particularly patchy. Any recomendation re the weeds, and patchy lawnThe Copper Beach hedge is doing very well. I bought four ft plants and the guy who put down the lawn spread grass seed over the area of the new hedge. Is this OK or should i take up the new gras and just leave as clay? When should I cut back the hedge to promote growth and thickness..Finally, I have planted a retaining laurel hedge again four or five ft high plants. Someone suggested i should cut these back hard in July. Any thoughts re this suggestion. Again grass seed planted in or around the plants...

I just saw the email from garden.ie where it said 10-10-20 did not have enough nitrogen for feeding a lawn after the winter. I put 10-10-20 on my lawn last week, is there any way to boost the nitrogen now or could I put 20-10-20 on now or would I damage the lawn by over feeding.
