Watering the lawns
The weather has finally turned hot… People often water their plants, flower beds and pots. But often forget about the lawns….
Watering heavily just once a week can be enough to stop the lawns browning off. A handy tip, is to water the lawn until there is surface water. (at least 1cm, but more if you can afford it) This way, once you have turned the hose off, the water can continue seeping down towards the roots. Water in the evening (this can encourage slugs and snails out) but is better for the lawns, as it will allow the water to get down deeper before the sun dries things out.
Remember, grass is a living thing, and needs water too.
