    Any gardeners out there ??

    Following the good spell of recent weather that we have been getting, I have just started mowing the grass in the garden. The grass seems very dry in parts and looks yellow. I think that this is because I may have cut it too low.

    What would any of you recommend to fix this? I am not sure whether its lawn feed or fertilizer or that I need (or any other product for that matter), so any recommedations from any gardeners out there would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Water!?

    Mine does this when it gets a bit too long and then I cut it. Just leave it a week or so and should be as good as new.

    Has the dog been p155ing on it?

    some good tips ]here

    Like stated above, give it a week or so and the coulour will come back:)

    Water!?



    Tried that, its watered every evening.

    lawn food

    i do a little (grow cuccumbers, tomoatoes, corgetts etc veges and things) but from experiance its when it gets to lon the lower amount of grass (the bit u cut to) has no clraphill (cant spell it the thing that converts sugers) if you wait the grass will come back.... its like if i broke ur leg.... you wouldnt be walking like normall the next day now would you? (unless youve gotta fake one ;-) )

    + dont over water!!!! if it has normal soil contact it will be fine water once a week max and only a little! ur drowning it

    Leave it a couple of weeks and see if it improves, if not, get some lawn feed, but make sure you follow the instructions. It's very very difficult to kill a lawn!

    Thanks guys

    You probably cut it too low, but it will recover soon enough. The local council did exactly the same to a field in fron of my house a few days ago.

    And whats wrong with council estates? We live in a council property but no-one realises they are council! Was speaking to a neighbour who has lived in a terrace house opposite our row of houses or 15 years (6 - 3 x pairs of semis) and they didnt realise ours where council homes! Must be the area you live and not the fact its council!
