Small Gardens With Nice Lawns

Small gardens can be beautiful

A garden is a very important part of any house no matter what shape or size it is. A small garden can be a thing of beauty and really increase your living space. It’s really important to maximise the impact of your small space and a creative design can allow you to do this.

Mix up elements to create interest – paving, lawn, flower beds, pots and of course, a suitable space to sit and view your creation. By doing this you will make the most of your outdoor space.

Reduce the visual clutter is a good small landscaping idea that helps to create a sense of calm and order. Stagger your plants for height and add a focal point to draw the eye’s attention.

An emerald green, healthy lawn will give your garden a lift, big or small. There’s a lot you can do to keep it looking good from choosing the right grass to aerating. Give your lawn some shape – don’t extend it to every nook and cranny, and don’t create small patches that are difficult to mow. A simple defined space is best.

Small lawns are prone to compaction so aerate regularly and this will mean any rain can easily soak in. Well cared for, even a small lawn does a good job of absorbing heavy rainfall

We are happy to help you care for whatever size of lawn you have – small gardens can be beautiful. So contact us at Fishers Farm Lawncare for assistance.

Why we mow the lawn.

To mow or not to mow, that is the question…..?

Well, of course, I would say it’s essential wouldn’t I but there are really good reasons why it is necessary.

So firstly, a properly cut lawn with stripes is a thing of beauty. It makes your garden look tidy and neat. A nicely manicured, even cut lawn gives your garden an orderly appearance. An evenly growing lawn will have equal access to sun and water.

Next, mowing on a regular basis keeps your lawn healthy and helps to keep weeds at bay. Regularly collecting the debris on your grass whether it be leaves or other things, it helps to stop disease spreading into your grass.

As with most other plants, cutting your grass improves its strength and resilience. Every cut increases the thickness of your whole lawn making it look more lush and full. As your grass becomes denser this will increase coverage and crowd out existing weeds and allow no space for new weeds to take hold.

It is important to get the mowing height right. As I suggested in my last post, start cutting in the spring on a higher setting and then gradually reduce it to 20-30mm for an ordinary lawn. Cutting your lawn too short, too early will weaken it, encourage shallow rooting and make it more susceptible to weeds and moss.

If you are unsure what to do, then contact me and I would be happy to take over your lawn maintenance for you to create the perfect lawn for you.
