Looking after your garden in may
Feed and weed your lawns during this month to encourage good growth and be sure to mow them regularly. Mowing is the best way to ensure you have a good lawn. Once a week is about right. Don’t apply weed killer either just before mowing or just after as the weeds need to be actively growing when they are treated.
Treat weeds such as dandelions in your lawn with a selective weed killer. This is the best month to do this as the weeds are now actively growing. We use a product called ‘Verdone,’ which is a liquid weed killer and the most economical way of treating large areas of lawn. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and only treat the areas that are affected. It will not damage your grass if used according to the instructions.
Finish sowing or laying new lawns this month before the weather becomes too warm and dry. The best times to sow a new lawn from seed are spring and autumn while the ground is still generally warm and moist.
