Are You in Need of Lawn Mowing Tips? Then Lawn Seeds Are Here to Help You.

Are you eagerly awaiting the arrival of springtime? The day’s start to feel longer, the nights get lighter and you’ll no doubt be hosting the family BBQ once or twice over the season. Although you may have to pick your moment carefully with how temperamental the weather is here in the UK.

Ah, but let’s not forget the preparation. Before you can start digging the BBQ out you’re probably going to have to tend to your lawn. After a fairly harsh winter season, your garden is likely to need some attention. 

Firstly you’re going to want to clear up that lawn.

First Thing You Need to Do

Make sure before you even think about bringing that lawnmower out of the shed. Make sure that the garden is clear. Pegs, bark chippings and anything else that’s lying around on the grass. This is purely for you and your family’s safety.

If a clothing peg or piece of bark was to get caught in your lawnmower, it could seriously injure yourself or your family. Always make sure the mowing field is clear before you begin.

The First Mow of the Year

The key to mowing your grass is little and often. Regular cuts keep the lawn thick and tidy and deter weeds from growing. A vast majority of gardens, we would recommend setting your mower blade to 3cm and cut your lawn once a week. As soon as your grass has started to grow faster lower your blade to 2cm and cut twice a week.

Lawn Mowing Tips 

  • Only mow your grass when the grass is completely dry
  • Make sure that the blades on your lawnmower and sharp and balanced, if not this could lead to uneven terrain.
  • Most modern lawn mowers come with a built-in circuit breaker, however, if you are using an older one we would advise you invest in one from your local DIY store.
  • Leave any grass trimmings on your lawn. These will break down and help contribute nitrogen and nutrients to your garden.
