The trouble that most people have is that they simply do not understand what a lawn requires. Just take ‘watering a lawn’ as an example and most people think they can simply lay out a sprinkler for a couple of hours and hey presto! You have properly watered their lawn. Moving on to pests, such as Lawn Grubs and that’s another issue to take care of and then comes the fertilizing of a lawn, which is another completely different area that needs looking into.
By now you might be exhausted just thinking about the lawn in your garden and you might even be thinking that an easier solution is just to dig it up and lay some decking or lay a nice patio. That’s a bit drastic and while many gardens look great without a lawn the garden, in my humble opinion, just wouldn’t be complete without a lawn.
OK, before you reach for the Tylenol let’s take a breather and think about this logically. The whole idea of maintaining a beautiful lawn can be broken down is to a few areas including:
- Evaluation and Preparation
- Fertilizing and Soil Amendment
- Seeding a Lawn
- Watering a Lawn
- Mowing a Lawn
Now that you have broken these maintenance areas down the job of maintaining a beautiful lawn becomes much easier. Take a look at the 5 Videos above, each is specific to the areas above so you can use all or any individual section that suits your requirements.
