Planting 2 plants in the same place (idiot gardener) hostas

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 17:35

Have you got a photo you can post,  it is always easier to identify plants and give advice if we can see the plants.  (And we're a nosy lot , we love to look at other people's gardens and plant).

After you have removed the moss,  you will probably find that you have got some bare patches again that will need re - seeding. 

Is my lawn beyond repair

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 14:23

My lawn was worse than that when I moved in.  The previous tenants had only used it to store fridges and freezers before sending them abroad.

I scarified it ( to remove the thatch that had built up over time).  Then aerated it with a garden fork,  (easier if you give it a good soaking first ). Then applied feed and weed.  After the prescribed time I scarified again  ( to remove dead moss and weeds ). Then over seeded it.

I have not got the perfect lawn, but it is much much better than what I had before.

I always put grass seed on patches of my lawn that needs it after scarifying. I also throw some over all the rest just to blend it in, in case I have used a different seed. 

I am a new gardener though and others may have other ideas.

Have you any friends or neighbours who would be willing to help you. I 'm sure you could find some way of repaying them without using money.  ie doing things like ironing,  sewing etc.

Just a thought but your photos my be too high resolution to upload.  You might have to crop them down a bit.

You said it is rental property.  Is it privately rented or local authority?  If it is private would the landlord help?
