I received this interesting question from a reader in summer 2021 about mowing a new lawn. He raises an interesting point about having difficulty making his new grass stand up. A new lawn sometimes grows wispy and leggy and the grass falls over when being mown. If your new lawn is like this find out what to do to bring it under control again.
I received this question about restoring a very long lawn in Autumn 2020 by a reader of my Website. They were not able to mow their meadow during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 and a local farmer then chopped down very roughly. Grass is very hardy and can put up with a lot of damage. Find out how best to restore a long meadow into a decent lawn.
Over the past few years I have noticed a worrying increase in the use of plastic netting in new lawns. This plastic mesh not only makes carrying out some lawn treatments very difficult but it can harm wildlife and increase plastic pollution in the environment. Find out why farmers are growing plastic embedded turf and how you can avoid this new environmental scourge.
