Lawn Care: Questions & Answers

Q. We’ve had a dry summer but when it does rain the water sits on the surface of the lawn for a long time, what should we do?

A. Compaction of the lawn can occur with heavy traffic, children and animals playing, especially if the subsoil is clay-like or a thatch has built up. Scarifying, aerating and spiking will help to alleviate this.

  2. Do not bother with a riding mower unless you have got at least an acre of lawn to care for. But I do advise looking into battery-powered units as an alternative to the typical mower. The battery-powered mower I review here is the best lawn mower that I have ever owned. You can find outlet a nice lawn mower from here: The Best lawn mower
