Keep on mowing your lawn regularly to keep it looking tidy. For stronger, healthier grass trim it every week if possible.

This routine of taking just a little grass for the top each week will keep the grass stronger than if you scalp the lawn every fortnight.

If the weather is turning hot and dry, leave the grass clipping on the surface rather than collecting.

The fine clippings will help to shade the soil and help to retain what moisture there is in the lawn.

Top Tip

Use edging shears after each mowing to keep the edge of the lawn looking really sharp.
