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?
Mowed lawn yesterday today there are some holes about 2" diameter and 4" deep with grass pulled up and left on side. A neighbour has had the same problem already with alot of damage. What might it be and how to stop it please.
Just wondering if you can tell me how to go about reseeding my lawn. It's completely neglected. It hadn't been cut in over a year and half. I have strimmed it last night, but it's very uneven. Clumps of grass growing in places, there seems to be cherry blossoms springing up in the lawn. Do I kill off the existing grass/weeds with Round Up? Then use a rotavator to loosen the soil? Then sow the seeds?? Sorry I'm new to gardening!
what growing conditions does a camomile lawn require. Have read the non flowering " chamaemelum treneague" is best ?? any advice would be greatly appreciated
Hundreds of dark grey insect eggs (<1mm) laid neatly on grass stems have appeared in patches on my lawn. I did not wish to assume they are pests without checking - but can't find definitive info. Seems early for crane flies. I do have a pond..........Any ideas?
Does commercial fertilizer (e.g. 27-2.5- 5) when used on lawns produce faster and coarser growth than that specially compounded for lawns which, generally, seems to have a much lower nitrogen content? Also, is the commercial variety depleted more quickly in the soil than the regular lawn type?
What is the best method for removing a dense covering of docks from my new lawn. I have mown regularly and leaves are remaining small and turning a pinkish colour, is this indicating that the mowing is working on its own or should I supplement this with another method ? Growth in some areas of the lawn seems to have slowed and new grass is very slightly yellow, what can I feed it with?
Our Lawn has alot of brown patches We sat it last year it was a nice rich green Colour.. In the last 3weeks it seems to have alot of brown patches... We have not used any feed on it..? ? Should I apply something to make it greener??
I put away too much fertilizer on my neighbours 30 + year old lawn 10 days ago in dry weather. Now there is highly noticeable yellow patches allover her lawn. What can I do to rectify the situation without having to put top soil mixed with grasseed on patches.It is raining today in Cork today do you think that might help a little?
We used weedkiller 360 and burnt all lawn. Now the weeds have grown and we want to kill them before we sow our new grass. Will we use the same weedkiller 360 or can you suggest another type?
I wish to get some organic slow release lawn fertiliser to cover an area of about one third acre. Which one would you recommend and where can I buy it?
How long should I keep the kids off the lawn after applying a selective lawn weedkiller for weeds, daisies etc? Also is it better to cut a lawn prior to its application and is there any problem applying it in the evening time.
Last autumn I took the top soil off an area of lawn and put down wildflower / grass mix and threw in extra wildflower seeds - poppies, cornflower, etc For added measure I added some extra flower seeds at Easter I know have some of the grasses but not a single flower seems to have grown What could be the problem? I was expecting a few flowers by now!
