1. The right tools
You will need a lawnmower, a roller, a hose pipe, a sprinkler, a rake, a pressure sprayer, a fork or a tool to aerate the lawn. You will also need protective gloves.
To keep your lawn looking beautiful you need to mow it regularly. If the lawn surface area dictates the choice of lawn mower., only a perfectly sharp blade delivers the best possible cut. The blades of grass need to be cut cleanly and not minced into little pieces. You need to adjust the height of the cut in order to ensure it is right for all
Where the grass is long, set the lawnmower to its maximum height for the first cut to prevent it clogging then mow it again lowering the height of the cutter deck. Push the lawn mower up and down the lawn in parallel strips. Avoid cutting grass which is still wet with dew. You normally mow the lawn once per week during its period of maximum
growth which is between April and June.
Mix the cuttings saved in the grass collector behind the lawnmower with other vegetable waste products to make compost later on. If you mow the lawn regularly, cutting a little off the top each time means you can leave the cuttings lying on the lawn as natural fertilizer.
