Looking After Your Lawn This July

Water newly seeded or turfed lawns in hot weather. Don’t allow new lawns to dry out.

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

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

Recut any lawn edges if needed and install lawn edging to make future maintenance easier.

Top Tip:

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

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.
