lawn secret

Jan 16, 2012


At the farewell garden gatherings over the weekend, I heard a few people comment suspiciously about the quality of the presbytery lawn:  ‘a bit green…clearly someone has not been obeying the water restrictions?’

Well I have been keeping to the restrictions to the letter! In fact the lawn takes very little water. But there is a secret, and I’m more than happy to share it.

I think of the lawn as being the garden, not the bit between the gardens.  

The secret is in the fertilizer, digging the weeds out (by hand) and re-seeding the gaps, and cutting the lawn VERY high.

The fertilizer gives food for good growth.

Keeping the weeds out allows the grass space and encouragement to grow. If you allow the grass to think that you are also trying to grow weeds, the lawn gets jealous and sulks.

And cutting the lawn VERY high prevents the sun from drying out the roots. So very little water is needed.

Good luck!
