A lush, well-maintained lawn can be the making of a garden. From time to time, though, it might need some extra care to keep it in peak condition.
When lawns start to look a bit lacklustre, it's amazing how quickly they respond to attention. Watering in the summer can turn a brown lawn green again. Spiking to aerate the trampled areas works wonders to get the grass growing, while raking out the dead growth can turn a thin, threadbare lawn back into a soft, green carpet.
