Autumn is here.
By now, most of the leaves will have fallen from the trees in your garden. The rain has arrived and the gardens will be looking a bit sorry for them selves. This doesn’t mean that the work on the lawns is over for lawn just yet. It is really important to make sure that all the leaves are picked up from the lawns, This is due to the fact that the leaves will create a layer over the top of the grass. This area is the perfect area for bacteria and mould to flourish. This can be harmful to the lawns and it will be far easier to pick up the leaves now, than to fix the lawn in the spring.
Also, if the lawn has not yet received an autumn feed, or aeration, then its a perfect time to do it, as the ground will be soft, and the final grass cut of the year will be upon us soon.
