Summer is officially underway - with any luck, the next few months will bring lots of barbecues, ball games, and beers in the back garden.
But while summer is lots of fun for humans, this season can be tough on grass. Lawns have a tendency to dry out in summer, which can be frustrating if you're someone who takes a lot of pride in your home's beautiful green lawn.
Achieving the perfect, lush green lawn takes time, effort and a little patience. With a range of season treatments and specialist applications needed, it can sometimes be tempting to combine treatments to kill two birds with one stone, such as using lawn fertiliser to kill weeds.
But does lawn fertiliser actually kills weeds? Can you save time on your lawn treatment by doing this? And what are the pitfalls of doing so? Well, if you find yourself asking any of these questions, this blog is for you!
Here, we take a look at lawn fertiliser's ability to kill weeds and whether or not it is the right way to go for your lawn.
So, you've spent a lot of time and energy growing the perfect lawn so your back garden can look like something out of a magazine, great. But it's now been a while since you last cut it and it's beginning to look like something out of Jungle Book and is desperate for a cut. The only question is, how short do you cut it?
Having gone through so much effort caring for your lawn to get it just right, the last thing you want to do is destroy all of that hard work by cutting it too short and causing more harm than good, right? Right.
So, in this blog, we look to offer a helping hand by giving you the information that you need to keep your lawn looking just the way you want by cutting it to the length required.

So, can you put down too much grass seed? What happens if you do? How much grass seed do you need for your lawn?
In this blog, we answer all of these questions to make your lawn growing issues a thing of the past!
