It may seem strange to be thinking about drought in a month that has seen heavy rain and floods, but looking after your lawn is all about preparation and planning ahead.
We cannot ignore that there has been a significant shift in our weather. We now experience extreme weather conditions throughout the year, from nights of high winds to extended periods of both dry and wet weather that shatter all previous records.
Weather has a huge impact on the health and appearance of your lawn. We all saw the effects of prolonged periods of dry weather last summer - but long periods of mild, wet weather can be problematic too, creating ideal conditions for moss and leatherjackets to take over our lawns.
Times are a little hard right now. The cost of living is going up, forcing UK households to stretch every pound as far as it will go.
However, despite increases in material costs and fuel prices, we at Lawn & Weed Expert are keeping the same prices for all existing customers (unlike other lawn care providers, many of whom have been raising their prices recently). And to help you save even more money, we will give you a FREE aeration / spiking when you book a lawn scarification!

Lawn maintenance is a great career to get into. Training as a lawn care specialist allows you to earn a good living while maintaining a good work-life balance. This line of work is also relatively recession-proof; while we have had to adjust the way we work in order to observe the coronavirus safety guidelines, the Lawn & Weed Expert team have continued to work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, our business has grown this year!
If you've decided that lawn maintenance is the right career for you, you might be tempted to buy a lawn care franchise. There are a number of reasons why this might seem like a good idea: you'll be trading under an established brand name, and you'll have the support of a company that's already made a success of looking after people's lawns.

You've spent all summer getting your lawn in tip-top shape. Your grass has finally taken on that lush green colour you've been working so hard for, you've mowed the perfect stripes, and the length is just right. Time to relax, right?
But then the weather turns wet and gloomy, and autumn settles in. Dead leaves have started to take over your garden, and those summer barbecues feel like years ago.
Unfortunately, there's a lot of work for lawn-conscious homeowners to do at this time of year. You still need to care for your lawn in order to prepare it for the colder winter months and help it to bounce back when spring returns!
