When you're having building work done at your home, your lawn can become damaged. Whether workmen drive their vehicles on the lawn to access necessary areas, or building materials like bricks or sand are left on your lawn for a long time, the damage can be pretty severe. Of course, when you're going to the effort of having work done on your home, the last thing you want is for your garden to end up looking significantly worse because of it! Today we're going to look at some of the different ways you can repair a lawn after building work.
Weeds have a way of growing in places they shouldn't and one of their favourite spots to grow is between paving slabs. These little gaps create micro-climates where weeds can germinate and flourish! Removing weeds from a patio or driveway using a pressure washer might seem like a good idea, afterall, if you're cleaning the slabs anyway, why not use the powerful jets to eliminate the unwanted weeds? Well, there are a few problems that can occur when you try to remove weeds with a pressure washer and we're going to talk you through them today...
When the temperature rises, you may notice that your lawn start to look a little dry and droopy. That's because the lack of moisture is starting to damage the grass and plants that make up your lawn. To combat the effects of hot summer days, it's important that you start a good lawn watering routine. Many people reach out to us because they're trying to establish the best way to water their lawn. If this is something you've been pondering during these warm weeks, then you're in the right place. Today we're going to explain the best way to water your lawn to keep it looking green and luscious whatever the weather!
If you've been keeping up with the news recently, you'll know that coronavirus lockdown restrictions are finally starting to lift! As of the 29th of March, people across the UK have been able to meet in groups of 6 (from no more than two households) in gardens and other outdoor areas. This is great news for people who have been isolated from friends and family for the past year!
While we're now able to meet in groups of 6, there are still a number of COVID-19 precautions you and your guests should take to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Here are a few reminders:
- Limit the number of people you see
- Remain 2 metres apart at all times
- Wear a mask or visor
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Clean and disinfect garden chairs, furniture and other surfaces
- Keep your hands clean
Getting your garden ready
If you're ready to start welcoming friends and family into your garden, we'd highly recommend spending a bit of time making it look its best. We've all had a lot on our minds over the past year, so it comes as no surprise that a lot of British gardens have been neglected. Don't worry, all hope is not lost, your garden can still be a wonderful place to entertain guests in 2021 if you're willing to give it some TLC.
While the warm weather is a sign that BBQs, sunbathing and garden parties are on the way, it also indicates that your lawn is about to enter its fastest-growing period. In order to sustain this rapid growth, you need to remove built-up moss and thatch, de-compact the soil, re-seed and provide a healthy dose of nutrients.
Here at Lawn and Weed Expert, we provide a comprehensive spring lawn care service that will help your lawn grow strong and healthy! What does our spring lawn care service include?
- Weed Control

I don't have a garden, where can I meet people?
If you don't have a garden where you can meet with friends and family, don't worry. Gardens aren't the only places that you can meet with people. As of 29th March, the government is allowing us to meet in groups of 6 in:
- Parks, beaches, countryside accessible to the public, forests
- Public and botanical gardens
- Heritage sites
- Sculpture parks
- Outdoor sports venues and facilities
Meeting friends and family in the garden is such a treat, don't let an unruly garden spoil the day. With a little help from Lawn and Weed Expert, you can have a lawn that's perfect for picnics in no time!
Spring is finally here, and it's exciting to think about all the different things we'll be able to do when lockdown restrictions start to ease. For most of us, seeing family or friends in our gardens is top of our post-lockdown activity lists, and with warmer weather on the way, it really will be a treat.
That being said, there are a lot of wild gardens that haven't been cared for during the lockdown. Ultimately, there have been more pressing matters on our minds than pulling up weeds, so it's completely understandable if your lawn needs some TLC. Today we're going to look at the important elements of spring lawn care to help you get your garden ready for old friends and new memories.
