Most of us like to ensure that our gardens are neat and tidy while we are away. We don’t want to come home from a nice relaxing break to find we need to spend hours in the garden to get it looking good again.
While not being out in the garden for a week might not cause too much mess, missing a fortnight might, and there are a few simple precautions you can take to protect your lawn while you are away.
Before you go away, make sure that you remove any weeds or moss from your lawn. Unfortunately these plants once established will quickly spread. The best way to prevent them from taking over your lawn and garden when on holiday is to remove them before you go. This is good lawn maintenance anyway and should be done before mowing to prevent them from spreading.
