As the country enters the spring season, green-fingered Brits up and down the land will really be getting to grips with the various garden tasks that lie ahead of them.
With so much to do, it is easy to overlook one or two small tasks, but one activity that should not be underestimated is scarifying.
In an article for the Guardian, former Gardener's World presenter and author of four books on gardening Alys Fowler claimed that it is a good idea to do this twice a year.
One of these should be in spring, as this will remove dead thatch from the lawn and prevent it suffering from poor drainage.
Any soil that has become compacted will need to be aerated and Ms Fowler explained that: "A well aerated lawn can hack both drought and waterlogging much better than an unloved one."
Those who wish to pursue this task could browse MowDIRECT's extensive range of lawn aerators, garden scarifiers and dethatchers.
For the eco-conscious, the Agri-Fab Walk Behind Aerator does not require an external power source.
Instead, a series of rotating star-shaped tines slice into the soil so that seed, fertilizer, water, air, light and nutrients can get access to roots underground.
Regular mowing is not to be neglected either. Editor of the lawn advice website Grass Clippings Mike Seaton recently told the BBC that the perfect green patch should be mown once a week between March and October.
Ms Fowler agreed, adding that this should be implemented as a strict regime that is adhered to without fail.
"Never cut off more than a third of the overall height, otherwise your mower will chew the grass up and spit it out – particularly if you have a push mower – leaving bald patches," the expert commented.
