lawn maintenance, under poor conditions

Posted: 16/04/2013 at 12:17

I like your ideas Frank...makes sense to change my bit of poor lawn for something that will give me pleasure and not so much hard work ! Thanks for the suggestions.

The problem I have with my other south facing lawn are the bare patches produced by my dog, his urine burns the grass...i've re-seeded many times but to no avail. I've heard that there are some stones available to buy ,to put into the dogs water bowl to neutralise the urine..does anybody know if they work ? Any other suggestions would be appreciated too. Cheers.

lawn maintenance, under poor conditions

Hi, My north facing lawn gets sun on half of it,but the bit near the house is in shade, there's more moss than grass there.Quite a high clay content and neutral ph.Over the years i've used moss killer and re-seeded when the moss has died,treated it twice a year with lawn feed to encourage the grass...but gradually the moss does take over again i'm afraid...I would say that if you got the moss killed off,kept the soil aerated by spiking well,brushing some garden sand into the holes and then re-seeding,feeding twice yearly,and lots of aerating,you may have some success.I find that having the time to devote to this never-ending task is the main problem !..

Good Luck.
