I have just moved into my new property and it comes with a lovely big back garden. I have been waiting for the weather to clear so that I can start organising the garden ready for the summer.
I have been checking the condition of the grass and it is very poor full of weeds and moss.
I have looked at getting green thumb into fix it but to be honest I enjoy gardening and doing things myself so i thought i would ask for tips on here.
I have been told to follow these 3 steps.
1) Scarify my lawn to remove the moss.
2)Then apply a weed killer over my lawn to kill all of the weeds.
3)Feed the lawn.
Does anybody have any tips on how to get this all completed so that we can have healthy grass for the summer.
See original post
Do your best to take the dandelions out. (a touch of systemic weed killer will do it ) salt and vinegar will do the same?
Use Iron oxide for moss killer. Its what you will buy in a bottle anyway and is cheaper.
If you have a WET LAWN. (I presume you do with moss)
Then you need to drain it. (not sure of your garden but you need a sump drain and some Aeration to it.
Deep holes with a fork at worst will do (fill holes with river sands)
Dig a deep hole (sump) at the lowest area of your lawn and see what happens.
Never use feed on your lawn only use Epsom Salts. Feed will just force fast nutrient growth.
PS. You will need new seed for the bare patches and you must keep off it for 3-4 weeks!!!!
You need to water and KEEP OFF IT at the same time.
Hope you get it
