Leaves on the lawn

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 20:12
We have several trees surrounding our property that sheds leaves begging in June usually and get stuck in between the blades of grass on our lawn. The leaves are quite small in size about the size of a finger nail. They are very unsightly and difficult to remove. My cylinder mower misses them completely, while my hover mower simply blows them all around. Does anyone have any suggestions how to deal with the leaves and offer a solution. I don't really want to have to get the lawn raker out every week. Removal of the trees is out of the question as they are on private land one garden away from ours. We will now have leaf fall from now right through to November.

My hydrangea flower heads are coming to an end turning pale and not at their best. Do I need to dead head them or leave on the stem? Thanks.

I have some lovely red hot pokers that are coming to the end of their flowering, what do I need to do once they finish flowering? Cut off the flowering stalks or leave? Thanks.

If it's a rotary or flymo maybe, if it's a cylinder best take it to someone that has the appropriate grinder for the job.

Grow both, make lots of home made compost, hard work but after four years seeing the fruits (excuse the pun) of our labour.

Pansyface will you keep them growing that way or intend planting them out?
