Hints & Tips
Yes, we really can start to think in earnest about trimming the lawn, the first sign that Spring is here.
After the big freeze, spectacular amounts of snow and icicles which ought to need a licence from the Ministry of Defence, the lawn is now showing once again.
And what a sorry sight it looks after being flattened by huge amounts of snow.
Wait until there is no immediate sign of frost and give it the lightest trim to knock off the just the tips.
Give it at least a week before you repeat the dose and don’t be tempted to lower the cutting height. There’ll be time for that later.
