With so many of us having spent weeks at home, our gardens have been used more than ever, especially if you have children who like to play outside. All this extra traffic can be detrimental to the health of our gardens and it is important that you spend some time every day looking after your lawn to help maintain it. Play equipment can be awful for gardens, if you don’t move it around often enough it will kill the grass off that is under it. Ideally, if you have a patio area, at the end of every day you should try and move as many items off the grass as possible. This is also a great time to water the garden especially during dry spells or heatwaves. If you have a sprinkler this will work, just ensure it reaches all areas, if not, simply spraying the hose over the grassed area for a few minutes a day will be enough to keep it looking fresh and green. You can also get some lawn feed which you can put on after mowing the lawn which can do wonders. Never water the garden at the time when the sun is still very hot as you may just singe the grass.
