Landscaping and Lawncare

When it comes to tending to your outdoor environment ahead of the summer season, lawncare and landscaping are two factors that definitely shouldn't be skipped.

The changing weather climate can often wreak havoc on your lawn, generating sparce and patchy areas, but there are plenty of options available for those looking to lock-down their lucious lawn ahead of Summer. Lawn mowers and strimmers will help you kepp your grass trimmed, tidy, and pest-free. Remember - regular trims act as a great method of low-level lawn maintenance and won't have you caught up in overgrown grass. After a little more inspiration when it comes to low-level garden care? Our article How To Do Low Maintenance Gardening is sure to lend a helping hand to any green-fingered garden.

Fertilisers and feeds are definite must-haves for those looking to prepare their luscious lawn ahead of summer, and can also be used in mid to late spring. Being generous is key! Designed to encourage vigour and reduce the growth of weeds, lawncare is just as important as landscaping! If you're lawn needs a little more TLC than expected, be sure to check out our handy guide on How To Repair A Damaged Lawn.

Raking and sweeping away undesirable mossy patches and weeds is a great way to help keep your lawn neat and tidy. Find yourself struggling to tackling more stubborn weeds? Weed killers are sure to help get the job done without leaving behind any harmful residue.
