Every spring is different and 2019 has been no exception! After the heatwave of 2018 which caused many problems with various plants including lawns, we had a fairly benign winter where there was not really much in the way of cold weather, but unfortunately not much in the way of rain either.
Now that Spring is creeping up on us, we have to consider how we go about mowing our lawn! Mistakes are often made on cut height and timing which can cause stress to the lawn and detract from it’s health and appearance.
I tend to think of a lawn not as a single “entity” but more of a large flower bed full of “grass plants”. We have to remember that these plants were not designed to be “cut” – they are on this planet for only two reasons: to flower and produce seed in an attempt to reproduce.
