The Importance of Grass!

The Importance of Grass!
The importance of grass and how to look after your lawn. Grass. It’s everywhere. It’s our garden carpet, it lines our paths, it cushions our children’s falls, it covers sports fields, it’s what makes a park a park, it feeds our livestock and yet grass is taken for granted on a daily basis. Grasslands cover a massive 1/4 of the earth’s land area with over 9,000 different species carpeting mountain peaks, polar regions, savannahs, jungles and making our planet liveable.

Autumn Maintenance of a Wildflower Meadow

Autumn Maintenance of a Wildflower Meadow
Increasingly, many gardeners are choosing to develop part of their lawn as a wildflower meadow, as well as keeping some as a beautiful patch of lawn turf.

Lawns for Wildlife

Lawns for Wildlife
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has launched a new initiative, called ‘Giving Nature a Home’, designed to encourage gardeners to think about wildlife in their gardens.

And since lawns often take up quite large parts of gardens, they’re well worth thinking about if you want to make your garden wildlife-friendly.
