I received this interesting question in February 2022 about using shade grass seed in full sun and regenerating a lawn. This reader asks about which grass seed mix to use for shady and sunny areas. Find out the best way to overseed a new lawn and which grass seed to use after a spring regeneration and scarification in this Q&A blog post.
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.
Autumn seems to be the season of the slime mould. I recently found this fantastic Grey Slime Mould (physarum cinereum) on a lawn in Exmouth. Grey Slime Mould is a collection of single-celled organisms. They look like sooty deposits spilled on the grass. Spread over several metres this one stood out as something rather curious. Almost like spilled paint.
