My friends lawn was badly damaged yesterday by a tractor driving over it. The ground is very soft and It has left several deep ridges and mucked up areas where the tyres appear to have spun. What if anything can be done to salvage this?
Is November a bad time to apply Iron Sulphate on the lawn to kill out the moss? And lastly When is is a good time to prune (Heavy) the apple trees?
I want to remove concrete in my garden and replace it with a lawn. Would you advise just lifting the concrete now before the cold spell and spend the next few months over the winter preparing the ground for April or would I be better off waiting until the cold winter is over to start a job like this. I want a real high quality lawn so grateful for what you would reccomend.
We have inherited an old bumpy (lethal for kids to fall on) porous tarmac tennis court and the cost of replacement with astroturf is too expensive. Therefore I'd like to replace with grass. Rather than completely dig up and re-seed, is it an option to simply put topsoil over the court and if so, how much is needed for grass to grow?
I had this misfortune of cattle getting on my lawn after i gave its its final mow, there is alot of hoof marks and sliding marks what can i do to repair the lawn especially at this time of the year, spade and repair the sod or sand /soil.
Is it too late to put nitrogen on my lawn, also I have a green beech hedge 90% of it is very strong but 10% directly under a large tree is weak. Is there any feed I can put on this 10% to help them.
My lawn is 20 m x 20 m . On three sides there is a gravel path and on the fourth is a flower border . On the sides with the path, about 18 inches into the the lawn it starts to slope down to the gravel preventing me from getting a nice defined edge to the lawn .I have seen lots of public gardens with a similar arangement but the lawn stays level and doesnt slope away at the edges . Any explanation ?
Am I leaving it too late to put down grass seed next weekend October 22/23rd. I have a very large lawn to plant and circumstances didn't allow it to happen in Spring.
What is the best grass seed for a sunny lawn? its a small lawn 12 ft circular lawn.
A number of ridges have appeared on part of the lawn in early Spring. Approx 3 meters long and 1cm wide. What could have caused this and whats the best way to restore it back to an even surface.
Part of my garden has concrete , only a few inches so it will be quite easy to remove so thinking of removing the concrete and digging up the existing grass and planting a whole new lawn. I was wondering when the best time to undertake a project like this is? and with winter approaching should i wait to dig up the grass until early next year or would i have time to complete everything now for September. I am new to gardening so I would appreciate all the steps and instructions you can offer and what I need to do. If you could also reccomenend a very high quality lawn seed.
I have a new lawn, when sowing I spread 0-7-30, it is coming along nicely but it has some yellow patches, what should I spread now to bring it nice and green. Also, is it safe to spray a new lawn for dock leaves at this time that have grown and what would you recommend.
I have a 16 month lawn however its a bit yellow and not growing quickly, I was looking at putting down a fertilizer but don't know what one to get, also it is quite a large area and would need around 30 - 40kgs. Where is the best place to buy this amount?
My lawn is boggy perhaps due to being on an incline and getting runoff from garden at back. However the problem now is that when I mow the lawn large patches of black wet spawnlike fungus/algae(?) have seeped up. It looks like black frogspawn. This is the garden of a new house so I imagine that the soil is just whatever the builder threw down and sowed lawn seed over.
I'v bought some lawn feed and moss killer to improve my 18 month old lawn (it has some weeds). The directions say not to compost the cuttings for 12 months. What do I do with these cuttings? can they be composted at all, even after a period of time or do they have to be dimped aside of no use at all?
