Hints & Tips
A walk across the lawn at this time of the year is quite revealing for in many areas the worms are doing their business and there is evidence of their work in the number of worm casts – excellent for letting the air get to the roots.
But the amount of moss in lawns shows no sign of abating and this milder winter has encouraged its growth.
You may also see a layer of thatch over the lawn which needs to be removed to allow the light to get through and promote healthy new growth.
