Depending on the growth of the plants, you should mow the lawnonce or twice aweek. Mow less during dry periodsanddon’t mow the grass too short. When it’s hot outside, it’s best to mow during the evenings, to prevent dehydrationdue to excessiveevaporation. That’s because freshlacerations,caused bythemowing,evaporate much more. Scatter fertilizer onthelawnif rainispredicted and repeat after amonth.This will keep yourlawnhealthy!Check the lawnfor diseased patches.
When nice weathercontinues for a while, water yourlawn,flower beds andother plants continuously for several hours instead of repeated short periods of 15 minutes.Always waterinthemornings. At night, water does not soak up as well as in the mornings which can cause mold.If necessary, you create a new straightedgetoyourlawnorflower beds, which is the finishing touch for your lawn.
