It's time to...

  • Mow lawns regularly, gradually lowering the height of the cut as spring progresses
  • Treat problem weeds, such as nettles and brambles, with weedkiller
  • Tidy up hedges, but before you start cutting make sure no birds are nesting in them
  • Keep large sheets of fleece handy to protect plants if frost is forecast
  • Build log piles at the back of borders for wildlife to shelter in
  • Rake out dead grass from lawns
