Problems with lawn grass and how to overcome it
For the most part grass is a nice hard wearing plant that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance to keep looking tidy. However, it is a living organism. So, whilst for the most part you can leave it to its own devices you still need to pay it some heed. One of the best ways to care for it is to keep it cut regularly. This is where you should get hold of some Briggs and Stratton Parts from http://www.briggsbits.co.uk/ and make sure it’s in tip top condition. What can you do about some of these common problems?
- A series of brown patches have appeared. The first thing to ask yourself is do you have a dog or a cat? The waste from these animals can leave stains if they are not picked up straight away. It’s not just animals. The ground’s acidity levels might be rising. An easy answer is to add lime or sulfur.
- The whole of the lawn is wilting and turning brown. This could be the result of a serious lack of watering. If you’re not in the middle of a hose pipe ban you need to get a sprinkler system on it as soon as you can.
- Magically fairy rings appear. Sadly your garden is not being visited by the little people; it is in fact a form of fungus. The first thing to do is spray it with a fungicide and if that doesn’t work just replace it.
