Looking After Your Lawn This July

This is your last chance to feed your lawn with a special lawn fertiliser to encourage healthy green growth.

Warm weather encourages rapid weed growth, apply specific lawn weed killer to tackle this problem.

Water your lawn during hot weather, particularly newly seeded or turfed lawns. Don’t allow new lawns to dry out.

Re-cut any lawn edges if needed and install lawn edging to make future maintenance easier.

If your lawn is infested by ants, brush out the nests on a dry day. Always brush them away before mowing.

Top Tip:

If you’re experiencing prolonged dry weather, set your mower blades higher to reduce stress on the grass.

This Month's Key Tips
  • Water plants if dry daily, but be water-wise.
  • Deadhead bedding plants and flowering perennials.
  • Clear algae, blanket weed and debris from ponds.
  • Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed.
  • Plant second cropping potatoes now to give you new potatoes for Christmas.
