As soon as the clocks go back signifying the end of British summertime, you can guarantee two things: shorter days and colder weather.

Sadly, neither one of those seasonal traits lend themselves well to gardening and, while the former can be depressing, the latter can have a particularly damning effect on the green, green grass of home – specifically your home.

Ensure your green fingers don’t come down with frostbite this winter by implementing these fool-proof tips into your garden defence.

 

protect your garden in winter

 

Bring Out Your Dead

Wintertime is the perfect opportunity to give your garden a spring clean. Or should that be a winter clean… either way, you get the idea.

Dead plants, weeds and leaves can carry disease and fungus that can prove damaging to other healthy plants nearby. This is particularly applicable to spent annuals and vegetable plants.

Meanwhile, pests can also thrive amongst dead, rotting vegetation, which too can cause subsequent damage to your garden.

Removing any plants that have past their expiration date should remove the problem and any possibility of springtime issues down the line.

 

Get the Drinks In

If a drop in temperature is predicted in advance, pre-empting the big freeze and watering your plants ahead of time can pay dividends once the cold spell hits.

Sub-zero temperatures can cause the ground to freeze, preventing water from permeating the surface and ultimately reaching the roots.

Getting ahead of the curve allows your plants to soak up the moisture while it still can, which can be particularly helpful when it comes to annuals and potted plants.

Speaking of potted plants…

 

All Gone to Pot

Terracotta plant pots can make for an aesthetically pleasing addition to your garden. Unfortunately, terracotta isn’t invincible and this is never more evident than during the wintertime.

To prevent your pots from cracking by gathering them up and placing them together, ideally in an unexposed area of the garden that’s sheltered from the elements, such as near the house.

For an additional layer of protection, you can even go one step further and wrap them up with hessian or horticultural fleece for enhanced insulation.

The combination of swaddling your plant pots with heat retentive materials and grouping them together in a huddled formation should help ensure they survive the winter unscathed.

 

Mulch Ado About Nothing

As noted above, the harsh winter conditions can make the surface hard and difficult for water to permeate. To counteract this inevitability, mulching over the autumn/winter can help the soil to retain water and regulate temperature, protecting your plants in the process.

What’s more, adding mulch to your flowerbeds will help keep root temperatures stable, preventing churning and heaving, while it can also inhibit weed growth. Meanwhile, as the mulch breaks down, it naturally deposits additional organic nutrients into the soil.

From Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin to Take That and Stereophonics, the subject of flooding has provided inspiration for countless music legends over the years.

Sadly, real-life floods are far less entertaining, especially when they occur quite literally in your own back yard.

To help your luscious lawn stay afloat in the event of a prolonged, heavy downpour, here are a few top tips to keep your garden high and dry.

Garden Flooding Solutions

Garden flooding can put a real dampener on your plans for a picture-perfect property. Help keep your garden from becoming a would-be Waterworld by following these three handy tips on how to prevent garden flooding.

 

Get Some Fresh Air

Compacted soil can be a prime suspect in the case of the flooded lawn. As such, preventing your soil from becoming compacted should be a top priority.

To keep your soil aerated, the best way to do so is to use an aptly-named aerator. Aerating your garden will give the soil room to decompress, either by removing plugs of dirt or piercing the surface with puncture holes.

Meanwhile, adding earthworms to your compacted areas can provide an au naturelle route to garden aeration. Simply introduce the wormy wizards to your garden beds and allow Mother Nature to take its course.

 

Gutter Talk

While your main property is probably already equipped with a guttering system, there’s a good chance that your outbuildings may not.

If you own a supplementary structure within your garden – such as a shed, Wendy house or greenhouse – these outdoor additions can easily become a contributing factor in your garden’s water retention.

Rooftop rain run-off from these temporary buildings can create pooling problems in your garden, providing a funnel flow of water into a single waterlogged space.

Avoid this issue by equipping your outbuildings with an appropriate guttering system. Such kits are available from typical hardware stores for as little as £30.00, so are well worth the investment.

Meanwhile, installing water butts is a great way to utilise the excess rainwater for gardening use in the warmer months, while also serving the purpose of drainage for the aforementioned guttering kits.

 

Vive la France!

For extreme cases of continued, problematic waterlogging, you may need to take a more permanent, drastic approach to saving your garden from a watery grave.

In such instances, a “French drain” system could well be the last resort that lasts resourcefully. And here’s how…

A French drain is essentially a trench filled with gravel, sand or a perforated pipe (and oftentimes a combination).

This provides your garden with an underground drainage system that directs the water away from ground level, channeling the excess water into a designated drainage area.

The French drain also has more aliases than James Bond, also commonly referred to as a weeping tile, a trench drain or a French ditch (among numerous other names).

 

Call in the Pros

If all else fails (or you don’t fancy getting your hands dirty in pursuit of that dream garden drainage), why not call in the experts?

At Lawn & Weed Expert, we specialise in making your garden glorious, whatever the weather throws at you.

Naturally, this claim also extends to flood prevention and we have more than a few tricks up our sleeve to keep your lawn looking lush even in the face of heavy rainfall.

So, what are you waiting for? Keep your lawn from becoming the next Atlantis by calling in Lawn & Weed Expert and enjoy a flood-free lawn today.

With a seemingly endless stream of technological innovations arriving with each passing year, it seems that the world is becoming increasingly reliant on ever-decreasing realism.

From micro-bladed eyebrows to lab-made vital organs, the 21st century is becoming increasingly reliant on faux surrogates for the real thing. Even the media has become notoriously reliant on fake news and even phonier politicians!

Gardening is no exception and has long been the breeding ground for artificial stand-ins, from house plants to Christmas trees. However, one garden feature that has seen a notable increase across the UK is artificial grass.

Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Let’s find out…

 

artificial vs real grass, artificial grass vs real grass, fake grass vs real grass

 

Benefits of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass has seen a dramatic rise in popularity for a number of reasons in recent years. Here are a few of the biggest benefits of ditching the real deal in favour of a lookalike lawn.

 

Low-Maintenance

The primary reason many Brits are switching from genuine garden grass to artificial greenery is simple: it requires hardly any upkeep whatsoever.

From mowing to weeding, real grass requires a lot of work to keep it looking presentable, particularly over the spring and summer months when grass growth is at its peak.

Leaving your garden to fend for itself is not a wise move. It’s a jungle out there and neglecting it will make your garden resemble one too.

Fake grass provides an easy life, with no need for continuous TLC to maintain its unblemished aesthetic.

 

Durability

In addition to its year-round looks, it also boasts the ability to shake off the harshest of weather conditions, regardless of the season.

From baking sun to torrential rain to wintry frost, artificial grass won’t falter under the demands of Mother Nature.

What’s more, real grass often struggles under heavy footfall and a family barbeque can easily turn your beautiful lawn into a trampled mess or worse.

With artificial grass, you’ll have no such issue. While fake turf isn’t ideal on slopes, it is more than capable of withstanding a load of traffic during social gatherings.

 

Consistency

Real grass requires sunlight to maintain its constant colouration across the area of lawn. This can be troublesome, particularly when it comes to shaded areas.

Shady patches will naturally receive less sunlight and thus grow at a slower rate. Meanwhile, in colder weather conditions, this can even lead these patches to remain frosty, while the rest of the lawn basks in the winter sun.

Artificial grass won’t have these issues and will be uniform from fence to fence. Additionally, artificial grass is inherently immune to lawn disease, nor will it discolour should the family dog decide to give it an unwanted spray.

 

Benefits of Real Grass

While artificial grass does have its obvious benefits, it’s hard to argue with the allure of real grass. Nature’s carpet has its own laundry list of natural pros that make it a fantastic choice for any garden.

 

Price

Artificial grass can be extremely pricy, particularly if you have a large garden area and want a surface that looks realistic.

When it comes to artificial grass, you really do get what you pay for: cheap isn’t good and good isn’t cheap.

High-quality artificial grass that looks the part will set you back anywhere between £15 and £30/m2.

By contrast, a few packets of grass seed and some Miracle-Gro will hardly break the bank beyond repair.

Even if you were to lay ready-made real turf, it could still cost you less than £5/m2, cutting the cost considerably.

 

Eco-Friendly

Real grass produces copious amounts of oxygen and actively contributes to a healthy environment around us.

In addition to that, it also plays a vital part in terms of wildlife, providing a natural eco-system to many species of bugs and insects.

Replacing such a surface with a stand-in that doesn’t quite offer the same perks in terms of conservation can naturally have a negative effect on surrounding wildlife.

Experts often preach that the faux substitute is actually a hindrance to the environment and a lack of natural grassland can negatively affect the carbon levels in the atmosphere.

 

Health Benefits

In addition to producing oxygen and contributing to cleaner air, natural grass has also been found to have a positive effect on overall health and well-being.

Real garden grass can be particularly beneficial for stress reduction and considered by many to be a natural regulator of cortisol.

What’s more, the act of gardening itself is also commonly cited as a stress-reducer, while the physical activity involved also provides a great form of low-intensity exercise.

Meanwhile, getting out in the open provides you with exposure to Vitamin D for a myriad of health benefits of its own.

 

Fake Grass vs Real Grass: The Verdict

When weighing up which option is best for you, it really does depend a lot on personal preference and individual needs.

When it comes to upkeep, there is no denying that artificial grass wins every time; however, maintenance isn’t the be-all, end-all.

After all, a stuffed animal doesn’t require any upkeep and still looks the part but it’s unlikely to be a preferred option to a living, breathing pet.

Real grass has real character and personality that the uniform perfection of artificial grass lacks. What’s more, there’s nothing stopping you from achieving a pristine looking lawn with the real thing…

As Tom Jones once said, it’s good to touch the green, green grass of home. However, in practice, maintaining such green grass can be quite a task – after all, it’s not unusual.

In pursuit of garden greatness, gardeners nationwide are constantly battling against a myriad of horticultural headaches, from weeds to waterlogging and everything in between.

Luckily, help is at hand!

Keep your lawn as green as can be with these top tips designed to keep your grass in tip-top condition, all year round.

 

tips for green grass

 

Best Green Grass Tips

Maintaining a gorgeous garden is a year-round endeavour. Follow these seasonal steps to keep you grass a healthy green, whatever the weather.

 

Early Spring

Early spring is the perfect time to prep your lawn for its time to shine over the summer months ahead.

During this period, take time to aerate your grass by piercing shallow holes across your lawn with a garden fork.

This will loosen the soil and allow oxygen and nutrients to reach the roots, promoting healthier grass growth.

For the greenest surface, remove any moss present by using a moss killer. Once the moss killer has taken effect, scarify your lawn to remove any dead moss and thatch to prevent lawn disease.

Finally, pull up any visibly noticeable weeds and reseed any areas that are bare, taking time to loosen the topsoil first.

Overseeding can also encourage denser grass growth, limiting room between the blades and preventing weeds from surfacing.

 

Late Spring

As spring comes to a close, your lawn should begin to take shape and grass will soon rise to the occasion.

Begin to mow your lawn regularly during this time, ensuring you only trim around 20% of the grass at any one time.

While scalping your lawn may logically translate to fewer cuts, cutting more than 50% of the blade length can damage your grass and cause stunted root growth.

Gradually lower the height of your mower until you reach the desired grass length. You can leave the short clipping on the lawn as a natural fertiliser.

 

Summer

With grass now at the height of its growth, your main priority during the summer is to stay on top of your grass with regular mowing.

It’s important to make sure your mower blades remain sharp over the summer as blunt blades can tear the grass rather than cut it. This can add stress to the grass, causing the tips to turn yellow.

Much like the springtime, avoid cutting your grass too short. While grass growth will be quicker, taller lawns naturally appear greener. Longer grass is also usually healthier and will help shade out weeds.

The hot, drier weather can cause your grass to become dehydrated. Avoid a thirsty garden by making sure you water your lawn after every cut, encouraging growth and recovery.

 

Autumn

As grass growth begins to slow down in line with the change of season, you should cut back on your mowing… no pun intended.

Allowing your grass to grow during this time will help it to recover from wear and tear of the summer, while it can also allow it to gain some height for the winter period ahead.

Aerating the lawn during this period can also repair areas of grass that have been worn over the course of the summer.

Finally, treat your garden with a slow-release autumn fertiliser to keep your green grass protected as temperatures drop and help your lawn endure the colder weather.

beautiful lawn in the sunshine

Have you been peering out of your window and noticing that your lawn isn’t really growing and is starting to look… a little bit brown and sad?

Perhaps it’s time you treated your lawn to our lawn scarification service! Lawn scarification is a great way to remove moss and thatch that has developed over the surface of your lawn, allowing fresh, green grass to grow through!

One of our clients, a loyal customer for many years now, recently asked us to carry out our lawn scarification service on her lawn. She was really pleased with the service we provided and even answered a few questions about her experience. Keep reading to see what she thought…

Why did you choose Lawn & Weed Expert?

We have been using Lawn & Weed Expert for many years.  We are happy with their service and find them to be very reliable and great value for money.

What problems were you experiencing before you had your lawn scarified?

There was a lot of dead moss in the lawn which was brown and unsightly and was stopping new grass from growing through.

What was the scarification process like? Did it take long?

It took one to two hours and was no hassle at all.  All the dead moss was put into the garden waste wheelie bin and we put that out on the next collection.

Was the scarification service successful? How does your lawn look now?

The scarification service was thorough and very successful.  I cannot see any dead moss in the lawn now.  It did not take long for the grass to recover and for the new seeds to grow through because we also had it re-seeded.  I would say it only took three to four weeks for the lawn to look normal again.

Would you recommend Lawn & Weed Expert’s scarification service to others?

Yes, I would recommend the scarification service!

We are so pleased that our scarification service lived up to our lovely client’s expectations! Our scarification service works wonders for lack-lustre lawns. Want to enquire about our lawn scarification service? Click the button below to find out more!

Garden lawns require a decent amount of water in order to boast healthy, green grass. However, as the old saying goes, it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

This is definitely the case when it comes to lawn water and waterlogging can be a serious issue. Luckily, we have a few tips up our sleeve to help get your lawn out of deep water.

 

rain damage to lawns,lawn problems with too much rain

 

Effects of rain damage to lawns

When it comes to the effects of too much water on your lawn, problems with too much rain range from waterlogging to weed growth.

Here’s are few of the most common problems that can put a serious dampener on your soggy grass.

 

Weak grass

Heavy rainfall can dilute the soil, washing away much of the nourishing nutrients the grass needs. This can result in stunted roots and weak, frail grass that struggles to grow.

 

Dead roots

When water fills the gaps in the soil, it blocks the roots’ air supply, effectively suffocating them. Not only can this damage the roots and stunt their growth, it can potentially kill them entirely over time.

 

Fungus

Excessive water can essentially drown the soil, causing the roots to rot. This can become a breeding ground for fungus, resulting in unsightly yellow grass and lawn disease.

 

Weeds

While torrential rainfall can damage healthy grass, it can have the opposite effect on weeds. If left, your lawn could see the tide turn over time as healthy grass makes way for unsightly weeds.

 

How to prevent rain damage

It’s often said that the best form of defence is a good attack. Why wait for rainfall to damage your lawn when you can take pre-emptive action and avoid it altogether?

Here’s a few top tips to keep your garden healthy, even in the event of an impromptu monsoon.

 

Let it breathe

Aerating the lawn can be a great way to improve drainage and aid the flow of oxygen to the roots. Pierce the affected surface liberally with a fork, taking time to gently wriggle one the spikes are in the ground. For particularly bad waterlogging, use a hollow tine aerator and fill the gaps with horticultural sharp sand to soak up the moisture to speed up the recovery process.

 

Traffic control

Walking on waterlogged grass can compact the soil and cause irreparable damage to the ground beneath, turning your lawn into a muddy swamp in no time. Avoid damaging your lawn by taking the age-old advice – stay off the grass!

 

Clear the gutters

A great preventative measure that often goes overlooked is the house guttering. Waterlogging can occur as a result of poor drainage and ensuring your actual drains are clear can help address that issue easily.

 

Fertilise

One of the best ways to help your lawn recover from bouts of heavy rainfall is to treat the surface with fertiliser. Wintertime often brings with it harsh weather, so efficient fertilisation during spring can make all the difference.

With summer now officially here, outdoor fun, garden play and general sunny shenanigans are immediately promoted up the list of evening and weekend activities.

As such, it’s time to turn our attention to the garden and, more specifically, prepping it for the impending summertime socials.

To ensure your garden has you walking on sunshine this summer and not trudging through sludge, soil aeration is a great place to start.

 

how to improve lawn aeration

 

What is soil aeration?

Compacted soil can hinder its absorption of vital nutrients needed for healthy growth and vitality. As such, soil aeration is a vital component when it comes to maintaining a healthy lawn.

Aeration methods help perforate the ground, providing better ventilation by loosening up the soil and reducing the soil density.

This allows for better access to oxygen, water and nutrients, providing a better opportunity for growth, enhancing drainage and boosting fertility.

Aeration also helps prevent lawn disease and the nutritional benefits of the spiking can help your lawn become stronger, with better-developed roots and a heightened drought tolerance.

 

Why aerate your lawn?

Most British gardens made up of silt, sand and loam soils will benefit greatly from occasional aeration; however, for clay soil, it can be a virtual pre-requisite.

Clay soil is easily compactible and notorious for its poor drainage. As such, aeration can make all the difference.

Footfall can naturally compact lawn soil, necessitating the need for aeration. For clay soil gardens, this footfall can be particularly traumatic and leave a literal lasting impression.

If you plan on having a herd of family and friends stampeding your lawn this summer, be sure to keep your lawn in fighting shape by strategic aeration throughout the year.

 

How to aerate your lawn

To aerate your lawn, use a fork to pierce holes into your grassy surface and gently rock back and forth to loosen the ground underneath.

Continue this process in a uniform fashion across the entire garden surface until you have covered your whole area of lawn.

You may want to make multiple passes over the most compacted areas of your lawn to ensure the problem areas have been effectively covered.

If a fork is unavailable, this process can also be achieved using a spade; however, a fork is preferable. For the best results, seek out a special lawn aerator – these are widely available in both step and roller form.

 

Professional Lawn Aeration Services

While you can aerate your own lawn to help keep your grass healthy, there’s nothing quite like a professional service to breathe some life back into your grass.

At Lawn & Weed Expert, we offer comprehensive aeration and spiking services that are both effective and affordable.

Using professional equipment and expert knowledge, we can give your garden a shot in the proverbial arm that will keep it alive and kicking no matter you have planned for it this summer.

While undoubtedly cheaper in the short term, DIY gardening can indeed come at a hefty price in the long run.

How so? Poor garden maintenance and improper technique can see your lawn deteriorate before your very eyes, leading some tricky and troublesome problems.

But it doesn’t have to be that way – especially if you call in the pros!

Keep your green, green grass of home under control with a little help from the experts.

 

benefits of a professional gardener

 

DIY Hard

Whether it’s a blown lightbulb, a burst pipe or a broken oven, maintaining the home can be an expensive process and one that continues to rack up maintenance bills year after year.

The high cost of professional services often leads to homeowners to take the DIY approach; however, specialisms within the home often provide a limit to where you can go with base knowledge alone.

When you want a kitchen fitted, you call in a kitchen fitter; when you want an extension built, you call in a builder; even when it comes to cleaning, many Brits like to call in a cleaner to get their hands dirty. Yet, for some unknown reason, that same ethos rarely extends to the outdoors.

 

Benefits of a Professional Gardener

Gardening remains one of the key specialist tasks on a property that, more often than not, homeowners are happy to roll up their sleeves and give it a go themselves.

Either that, or they leave it go entirely and hope for the best. Either way, the result can be trouble for your home turf.

While it can save you money initially, cutting corners with DIY gardening can be costly. Here’s a few benefits of hiring lawn experts for your outside space.

 

Knowledge is Power

If you don’t know what you’re dealing with, trouble probably isn’t too far away. That ethos can be applied to most things in life and gardening is no exception.

From overzealous pruning and over-watering to poor fertilisation and lawn scalping, common mistakes of DIY gardening can lead to a myriad of issues down the line, including lawn disease and even dead grass.

They say pride comes before a fall, but it doesn’t have to. If you’re an amateur gardener with limited horticultural knowledge, save yourself the headaches and enlist the help of an expert.

 

Tools of the Trade

Shovels, hoses and lawn mowers aside, most modern homeowners are incredibly unequipped for the demands their gardens throw their way – and understandably so.

Good quality garden tools aren’t cheap and can take up a lot of space, requiring their own designated storage space when not in use (which also isn’t cheap). By the time you’ve spent out on tools and storage, you could have had the job done professionally!

What’s more, an expert will have a variety of professional equipment to hand for a range of garden eventualities, including many specialist items you likely won’t own yourself, from lawn aerators to scarification machines.

Save yourself the money on tools and storage by calling in an expert that already has the tools of the trade to hand.

 

Eye for Detail

Certain lawn afflictions can be hard to detect for the untrained eye, leaving the problem untreated and left to deteriorate further. This one of the most common problems with DIY lawn care.

Over time, this can lead to serious issues and not only ruin the look of your garden but also significantly damage its overall health as well.

A professional lawn expert will know exactly what he’s dealing with and be able to detect problems that would otherwise go unnoticed. If identified early enough, this can then be treated easily and effectively.

When it comes to lawn disease and bug infestations in particular, catching it early on can be crucial so this reason alone is well worth the investing in a pro.

 

No Off-Season

It’s common for amateur gardeners to spend a lot of time giving their lawn, plants and flowers a healthy dose of TLC during the spring and summer months. After all, the weather is inviting, it’s nice to be outdoors and that’s typically when plant and grass growth is at its highest.

Conversely, the colder winter months see the outdoor space far less utilised and far less loved. Who wants to be outdoors, tending to weeds in the cold wind and rain? A key perk of professional lawn care is that it keeps your garden in peak condition year-round, with specialist seasonal treatments specifically for the change in climate.

 

Wow Factor

For the house-proud homeowner, a presentable garden can really complete the appearance of your property. What’s more, it can also act as the perfect venue for social gatherings and barbeques when the weather is fine.

However, when it comes to creating a truly awesome aesthetic in your garden, no matter how good your gardening skills are, chances are, a pro could top your efforts handily.

With extensive knowledge of grass, plants and flowers, as well as the appropriate fertilisers and lawn care techniques for peak performance, professional attention can allow your garden to live up to its true potential.

Wow your friends and family, make your neighbours jealous and make the most of your outdoor space by enlisting the aid of a pro.
