Care for a new lawn in winter

I have been away for this site for so long that my toenails have grown so long that I can cut the grass by walking barefoot over the top, now. 


The birds still like to steal the show in the morning though and boy will they continually peck your feet until you are dead. Avoid the snakes at all cost. The snakes with blue tit are the worst. The female snake with tits will destroy you, every time.

Karcher Parts are all made of plastic that split under pressure and cost a fortune too replace.


I recommend getting something better. Have you ever looked at how many Karcher repair centres there are around the country / world. Just look up Karcher washers and see the price!!!

I have told you many times before that The Eden Project has enough space inside and you must stop taking on too much work at your time of life. Leave it to other people.

Mulching

Anybody else see those beautiful coloured leaves falling from the trees and forming huge big heaps in ever corner, When the wind blows. (https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiy_bGpvvTPAhWJJMAKHTpeCpQQyCkIJjAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DOOt88zY3FJM&usg=AFQjCNGE1nCoMNm8M2YtuZDMpL6iZKbK2Q)

Great job Lloyd88.


If you have any moss issues then scarification may be needed but it sounds like your lawn is OK with you saying there are no weeds.


If it is not to wet then some lawn aeration will Help. If you are not sure if you need to aerate, simply dig a section of turf out that is at least 1-inch square. If the brown layer under the green, growing grass is an inch or more, then it is time to aerate it. You can use a fork to do this (time consuming) or any aeration tool you find on the market. (do not use the spiked shoes. They are a con)


Rake sharp sand or river grit/quarry dust into the holes as this will help drainage and the mineral content will greatly help the lawn for next year. 
 
Hope this helps.


PS. don't forget if it's too wet stay off the lawn! Also lawns love Epsom salts and worm compost. You should be all set for next year after this.

Composting garden waste

Posted: 24/10/2016 at 22:43

alexismacron. Excellent advice from all above.


As You get to know more about composting then I advise that you try hot composting first to kill as many seeds as possible and then Vermicomposting to speed things up.
