What to do about lawn problems

grass lawn with mossWeeds

Dandelion, buttercups, daisies will ruin the look of your lawn as they spread like wildfire when left untreated.  Find yourself a lawn treatment that will kill weeds, without damaging the grass.  Watch out for worm casts (deposits of mud) as they allow weed seeds to germinate.


Mosses are very resilient and can take a lot of work to get rid of.  Apply a mosskiller and spike the lawn, this will help to enhance drainage, moss thrives in damp conditions.  Feed the lawn regularly to improve the condition of the soil.

Pale Grass

This is normally due to mal-nourishment.  Your lawn needs a pick-me-up.  It is weak because all the nutrients available in the soil have been absorbed and there’s nothing left for it to feed on.  Don’t over water it; the damp conditions may cause other problems to develop too.

Yellowing Grass

This could be down to a fungal infection called Rust that manifests itself by changing the grass colour from green to yellow.  It is most common in lawns where Nitrogen is in short supply.  You can cure it with a Nitrogen-based feed or lawn treatment.

Bare Patches

Normally due to mowing the lawn too short.  Many people do this as it means they don’t have to mow their lawns as often.  Unfortunately, these scalped patches will make it vulnerable to all sorts of other problems.  Re-seed and try a miracle grow treatment.

Fed up with your lawn?

If all this sounds like too much hard work and you’re fed up with on-going lawn problems…consider artificial grass.  You’ll have a perfect lawn all year round with none of the hassle.  You’ll finally be free to concentrate on the rest of the plants and flowers that make your garden beautiful.
