The lawn mower could do with some love.

The ground is damper than ever before; lawn cutting in some parts of the country is pushed out to fortnightly maybe even every three weeks!

Don’t leave the grass to get long then cut when damp, it will clog and mush and be pushed back into the turf which will ultimately kill your lawn.

Your mower, electric or fossil fuelled needs regular use cleaning and don't forget to sharpen the blades. Do the foot test before mowing because if you sink into the lawn, pushing a motor mower through it is only going to end up with you getting stuck.

Now is also a good time to re-address drainage and not have a repeat of last winter.
