The Lawn Care Guide – June

We’ll take a leaf out of last year’s journal’s lawn tips for June. That’s the beauty of keeping your own journal to refer back to, saving you time and effort. Much of what was said in May still applies. Mowing may be stepped up to twice a week if the grass is growing that fast. 

On the other hand, if the ground is dry and drought prolonged you may need to spike the lawn and give it a mulching cut, leave the collector off the garden tractor and switch to a mulching deck if you have one. Either way, leaving the cuttings on the lawn will help protect it.

If you have a hosepipe ban (becoming more familiar as each year passes) and the grass is looking brown, don’t worry, it’s very tolerant and should recover. If you can water, water thoroughly in one or two sessions per week. A really good soaking will penetrate deep into the soil and encourage the roots to push down. Light sprinkling every day is a waste of water and your time, and only serves to encourage the shallow rooting grasses you don’t want. 

Give the lawn the last treatment of lawn sand and weed killers this month and water in if dry. Keep edges trimmed for a neat appearance using a powered edger or attachment for your trimmer if you have one. Carry on preparing beds for new lawns ready for seeding in August to September – you can hoe away any weeds that appear.

I want to quickly Say a big thanks to Brother James Watt the agent of the brotherhood who introduced me to becoming a member of the great Brotherhood brothers and sisters here is my story. I was told by a friend that to become a member of the brotherhood is Very difficult, so i was thinking that i can never get the right link to join because i was scammed by three people whom i meant on the Internet and they promised to help me join but they never did. They collected my money and i was never initiated into the brotherhood. Until i was introduced to Brother James Watt and he told me the truth that those in USA Don’t pay any money from their pocket to become a member of the Illuminati, and i am an American. so i was very Interested i called the temple messenger number i was given it was +1(617)663-8926 when i called, the temple messenger Told me what i need to do, i did it and i was initiated i did not pay a dine from my money to become a member. But i was told that those living outside USA will have to pay some kind of money for the purchase of their initiation materials. But those living within the square of USA don't pay a dine. I followed all instructions and after my initiation, I was given all the benefit of becoming a member. As i talk to you am very okay and my future have been settled. I am well protected and i am wealthy and famous. Please if you wish to become a member of the great Illuminati contact Agent Brother James Watt on the Devil Church, ( or those in the USA can call or text directly the Temple messenger on +1(617)663-8926.
