Hints & Tips
We all love a green stripe on the lawn – and with the warm summer season finally upon us, green-fingered enthusiasts and gardening professionals alike will finally be able to break out the lawn mowers.
Although quite a few gardeners are likely to have been doing whatever they can to keep their grass trim over the winter and wet spring months, there's nothing like getting into a regular routine.
However, this may not be the case for everyone, as different people have different expectations of their own green space.
If you wish to attract some wildlife, it is best not to be too neat and tidy – and leaving a bit of garden debris lying around is a great way to attract animals and insects.
Author of The Allotment Keeper's Handbook Jane Perrone said this can offer all kinds of benefits.
In an article for the Guardian, she specified that "the lacewings and ladybirds that overwinter in hollow stems to the birds who gather this material for their nests and the hedgehogs who hibernate in dead leaves at the bottom of a hedge" all stand to benefit from dead leaves and bracken.
For those who still enjoy a tidy space, we boast the widest selection of lawn mowers in the UK here at MowDIRECT- and there is bound to be something suited to gardens of all shapes and sizes.
