Summer Garden Maintenance

Posted on April 28, 2014 at 9:34 am

Spring is upon us and Summer is around the corner so its a great time to be in your garden enjoying the weather. If you love being out in the garden keeping it looking nice or if you find it a chore here are a few things to consider when doing so.

When watering your garden the best time to do so is in the early morning around 5/6am. This gives enough time for the grass to dry giving your lawn the right conditions to promote either shallow or deep root growth.

If you are cutting your grass in the evening is a recommended to do so in the early evening. Reasoning behind this is that the grass has had an ample amount of sunlight during the day and will have enough shade until the next day. Coupled with fertilisation one or two times a year can keep your grass looking vibrant and growing evenly.
