February Gardening

February 15, 2012

Surprisingly today has been another rain free day and with the evenings getting longer its an ideal time to focus on the lawn. Preparation is the key to keeping your grass healthy and easy to cut. Taking the plunge into early mowing ensures that you wont have to cut it down with much effort when the real growth begins.

The best way to go about doing this is to give it a cut now and another in three to four weeks depending on the level of growth. It can be hard to become motivated to get February gardening under way with it mainly being a month of preparation and pruning. The real benefit of beginning now is to avoid the hassle a late start can result in and to get back into the routine.

After the first cut of 2012 focus on securing any young trees against the spring gales we’ve having in order to avoid damage. The best thing to do is to just get out there and do it! Once the hot weather kicks in you’ll be delighted you did as you can reap the benefits of the early start.
