Poor Lawn

Posted: 09/12/2015 at 19:34

Verdun, you may well be correct that the lawn has been affected by leatherjackets and I agree that nematodes applied next year will be a good course to follow.Nematodes are very effective  

However, if you zoom in on the third photo you'll see long grass stems laying flat on the surface of the lawn, looking dry and hay-like - I think it looks like the flowering stalks of the grass that are not being cut properly.

I've zoomed in on the third photo and I can see what you mean - there are a lot of long grass stalks there - they look like flowering stalks rather than 'leaves' - can you check and see if that's what they are?

What sort of mower do you use and how sharp are the blades?

We've got a fence of trellis panels hiding ours. 

You could hinge some trellis panels like in this picture.  Maybe fix one end to a wall or fence and put a patio clematis in a pot by the fixed end to climb over that end.

I was only saying this morning that I'd be perfectly happy to be added to the compost heap following cremation (at the appropriate time of course - not yet).

New allotment OMG...
