Lawn Calendar – May

Lawn Calendar

Regular mowing once a week is normal at this time of year but remember to leave the height of the cut at least 1 inch or more. Varying the direction of the cut helps the lawn to grow evenly.

If the lawn is dry don’t start to water it too much as this can be more harmful than drought. Try to use rainwater collected in a water butt as it contains important minerals and nutrients. Always water in the evening as it allows the water to penetrate the surface before it evaporates in the sun.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
