Jobs to do in June
June is an important month in any gardeners calendar. The extra light and warmth will undoubtedly encourage the garden to put on an exuberant burst of growth!
Here are some tips to keep in mind when mowing your lawn during the summer.
It's vital not to let your grass grow too long, as removing more than one-third of the total blade height at one time could stress your lawn. Keeping your lawn mower blades sharp helps to protect the grass from lawn diseases. Dull mower blades can serious damage the tips of the grass, leaving the grass vulnerable to lawn disease.
A lot of people get confused about what to do with their grass clippings. Mulching is great during the summer months. Lawnflite offer a mulching kit for all rotary mowers, allowing you to return your clippings and nutrients to the lawn, giving it that lush look for the summer.
Mow wet? Wait?
A lot of gardeners also have the dilemma of deciding whether it’s better to cut their grass when it’s wet or to let it grow. On average you should mow twice a week, dropping to once a week during periods of drought. Never mow wet grass! This can damage the turf and compact the soil. Wait until later in the day when the lawn has dried out, or postpone mowing to another day. For more expert advice contact your nearest dealer with our dealer locator.
