Lawn destruction

Posted: 16/02/2014 at 19:12

Thanks everyone some good advice which I really appreciate .  I think I'm going to have to do a combination of all your ideas . Distraction tactics , some seed and aeration and cross my fingers and hope for the best. I'm not going to get the way he had it , too expensive and would never recoup. It's sad that these days inheriting property that your parents leave you is more a millstone than an asset and the government get a good chunk of it too. Sign of the times. Anyway once again thanks everyone.

 

Regards

Hi Brumbull , Thanks for your reply. The lawns area is about 1800 Sq ft. Cost is a premium as the house is drain by itself.

Hi , Can anyone help ? My late father had a lovely green lawn. After his passing we rented the house out  and the tenants and dogs ruined it. Not a blade of grass left. It would have been better condition after a Rugby International , I jest not. I challenged them and they said they would make good. They put seed down. They are no longer there and the grass has grown in  tufts with bald patches and feels very bumpy under foot. It breaks my heart to see it like this as he loved his garden. What can I do? We are being forced into selling as cannot afford to keep it. How can I make the lawn looking it's best .

Hi everyone , I have a laburnum of about 40 years old which has developed what I believe to be Honeydew fungus around the base and about 6 ft up the trunk to the apex of the branches . Is there anything I can do ? Also have a flowering Cherry that has developed a small pink bracket type fungus along its branches , feels a bit leathery . Is there anything I can do here ?  I also have an apple tree that has a wooly appearing mold  / fungus which exudes sap when touched . I had another with the same problem which died.  Can anyone give hope to this sad gardener ?

 

Regards
