Kieran’s Garden Advice – March

It has been a pretty cold and wet start to the month but warm weather is hopefully just around the corner. If you haven’t managed to get your mower serviced yet, get this booked in at your local Toolhire shop ASAP. As soon as the weather warms up your grass will start to grow.

  • First Cut. When mowing your lawn for the first time this year it is important to adjust your mower to a high setting so that you just “top” the grass. You should never cut more than 1/3 of the total length of the grass. The trick is to start high and then reduce this as we move further into Spring.
  •  Don’t rush in. March may be the official start to spring but Winter can have a sting in the tail. There may be a few frosts yet to come and temperatures may not warm up straight away. If this is the case then hold back. Mowing too much in cold weather can cause a lawn to yellow.

I hope you find this advice helpful and stay tuned for more monthly lawn care tips.
