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.
I received this interesting question in August 2020 about crane flies attacking a lawn year after year. “We’ve had leatherjackets now for ten plus years, gradually getting worse every year. We were of the understanding that crane flies return to where they were larvae.” This is an interesting question about crane flies. Find out more about them and if they return.
I received this interesting question in the summer of 2020 about seeding a lawn after it had been destroyed by leatherjackets. The reader asks if the timing of sowing the new grass seed should be delayed to prevent re-infection by the pests. Find out the answer to this interesting lawn question and why there are other factors you should consider.
