Caring for your lawn
Your lawn might seem like it could do with some tlc during the winter months, however, mowing is unnecessary during freezing conditions, especially if you find your lawn damp or crisp from the cold and drying winds. If this year’s winter is warmer than predicted, your grass might still grow. In that case, we recommend an occasional mow with the highest cut setting on your lawnmower but only if there is no frost about!
Cutting grass when it is frozen or wet can damage it, leading to bare patches and damaging the soil the grass is growing on. Instead, use this time to repair any summer damages that might be seen on our lawn, allowing you to prepare the grass for fresh growth in spring.
Removing fallen leaves from your grass can also be beneficial, as they might be blocking the light and drying the blades.
Don’t just throw away the fallen leaves, they make a great nutrient-rich compost! Find out how to create an autumn leaf compost here.
