Regular mowing is a vital part of achieving your great looking lawn. A quick whiz with a sharp and well-adjusted mower will only take you a few minutes if you do the job every week. Mowing as often as you are able will encourage the fine grasses and allow the grass enough energy to thicken up to be an area to be proud of and the envy of the neighborhood.

Lawn cutting can be simplified into the following rules:

  • Never more than 1/3rd off in any one cut
  • Mow frequently – weekly is best when the lawn is actively growing
  • Check your mower regularly for cutting height and blade sharpness


Regardless of your mowers cutting action being Cylinder, Rotary or Hover, the principles of lawn cutting to achieve a great looking lawn remain the same.

“The Greener Gardens team are looking forward to sharing their knowledge of grass seed following a recent visit to Barenbrug UK Ltd in Suffolk

Did you know it takes 17 years to bring a variety of grass to market! The process involves search, selection, isolation, private trials, first multiplication, official trials, registration and then the launch. This is what our team learnt during a recent technical training workshop.

Barenbrug have been breeding grass seed varieties for every possible application for over 100 years. We recently had an exclusive tour of the specialist production and distribution facility to see how seed is developed, quality controlled and dispatched.
John Draper commented “The experience, specialist knowledge and support from Barenbrug means that when we apply grass seed to your lawn, you can be confident we are applying the very best.”

We have a range of Green Velvet seed available from our vans or look out for our new online shop.

If like us your keen to get out in the garden, it looks set for another damp week end so not ideal for tending the lawn.

But all is not lost, the key to a great looking lawn is regular mowing, so why not beat the rush and get your mower serviced. We recommend the following people:

Over the last few weeks, horrendous rainfall, flooding and waterlogging have blighted thousands of homes and gardens across the UK. Although damage to the home has been the higher priority, garden plants will suffer severe problems if the effects of waterlogging are not dealt with.

The extent of the widespread damage has left the gardening community devastated by the effects. Garden and allotment owners can only sit and wait for the water to disappear to see the true extent of the damage.

Few garden plants, apart from willows and those that naturally grow in water, can survive prolonged periods of flooding or waterlogging. The water replaces the air in the soil and, as roots need air to breath, they literally drown, start to rot and then die. As plants need water absorbed by the roots to live, the leaves of affected plants soon show the first signs of the problem, turning yellow, drooping and dropping prematurely. Badly affected plants may then die.

However there is help and support out there for the gardening community. Miracle-Gro has come up with a garden rescue guide.

Miracle-Gro Rescue Guide

There are several things that garden owners can do to help rescue their gardens – both in the short term and more permanently.

  •  Don’t walk on waterlogged soil until it has dried out and is workable, to avoid compacting it and making conditions worse. If you have to walk on it, use a plank of wood, board or invest in a portable path to spread your weight and avoid compacting the soil.

  • As soon as plants start to come into growth in spring, applying foliar feeds of Miracle-Gro® All Purpose Soluble Plant Food will encourage new root growth and help improve leaf and stem growth.

  • Feed flowering plants with Miracle-Gro® All Purpose Continuous Release Plant Food. We also supply a version for roses and shrubs and ericaceous plants. These will continuously release nutrients into the soil to help build up the strength of plants.

Feeding with Miracle-Gro® Bone Meal Natural Root Builder will help plants produce a new root system.
