Lawn rolling is a practice almost as old as the very concept of a lawn itself.
Cultivation of outdoor spaces may have started as early as the 16th century, but it wasn't until the 17th century that we would begin to see lawns as we know them today, with closely shorn grass. In those days, lawns belonged only to wealthy land owners, for whom the lawn was a mark of wealth and status; only the rich could afford to hire help to cut and weed the grass. Bear in mind this was in the days before lawn mowers, so everything would've been done with manual tools such as scythes and lawn rollers.
Over time, as lawn games such as bowls, cricket, and golf increased in popularity, so did the trend of lawn maintenance. Lawn rollers are the perfect example of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it': a classic, old-fashioned design that's still used today on cricket fields and golf courses to keep the surface flat and firm.
There are a lot of different reasons that a person might choose to use a lawn care provider – not every one has the time or ability to care for their lawn to the extent it needs. Some lawns are more high maintenance than others, for example, if they're currently struggling with a pest issue or fungus infestation.
Whatever your reason for hiring professional services may be, it’s important to know that you’re getting your money's worth. But how do you know if your current lawn care service provider is doing the best job, and is giving you the best price?
Clover, the common name for over 300 members of the legume family, are small flowering plants with a very distinctive three-leaf shape (four if you're lucky!). Though often associated with good luck, there are several reasons why you might not want this little guy growing in your garden.
Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in the world; if you're someone who's particularly house-proud, or in this case garden-proud, you might want a clover-free lawn purely for aesthetic purposes. Clover has a very distinctive shape and sticks out like a sore thumb, and can very easily upset the balance of your lawn.
