Good advice from Tetley - now is a brilliant time to buy garden furniture, sun loungers etc - they're all on sale.

No, it's not Gary - he's on a pedal cycle   think he's in South America at the moment.  But your article is interesting  - good for him. 

We've got soft steady rain at the moment - no storm so far. 

Raising height of standard (lollipop) topiary

Just regular clipping with some topiary shears will keep the balls dense and nicely shaped. 

The more frequently you clip during the growing season, the better the balls will be.

This morning it's already 19C and soft but steady rain has just started - the lawn is drinking it in 

Plants that will grow together

We need to know more about you and your fence - height, length, which way does it face, what sort of soil do you have, what sort of effect are you after, that sort of thing. 

Lawn Help

Don't use 4 in 1 at this time of year - you'll be setting up a load of new problems for yourself.  It's for spring application.

Leave your lawn alone now, apart from mowing as needed and as Verdun says, on a Med height cut.  

If we have a mild winter and it keeps growing, only mow on dry days, never when frost is forecast. 

The real work will start in the spring.
