Lawn care tips

For a healthier, greener looking lawn, mow it in different directions on alternate weeks. i.e. in opposite diagonals or from side-to-side and then top to bottom.

As an alternative to a grass lawn, particularly useful in sloping sites or areas in full shade, consider growing camomile, Corsican mint, thyme, or evergreen epimedium.

Remove fungi from the lawn before mowing, to stop the spread of the spores.
