April gardening tips
Most lawns are looking a far cry from the emerald swards of last year. Unless the weather stays filthy and cold in which case it is better to wait for balmier days, feed with a spring lawn feed to encourage new growth (these have a high nitrogen content to encourage leaf growth), mow regularly (start with the blades high for the first couple of cuts), overseed bare patches and apply weed and moss killer. Rake out or scarify after applying moss killer or you will merely be spreading moss to the rest of your lawn!
Now is the ideal time to sow new lawns on well prepared ground – if you are unsure, please ask for help and advice in the garden centre.
