Lawn Diary – August

Lawns, Lawn Calendar

August is often a time when the lawn gets most use as children are on holiday and playing in the garden – or lying down if you have teenagers like me! Why is it that this age group spend so much of their day in a horizontal position?


Most  lawns have stopped growing so much which means mowing is less time consuming. Ideally mowing should be left to once every two weeks  – especially if the weather is dry.

If this is the case, give the lawn a good soaking every two weeks and allow the water to seek deep into the turf .This allows the moisture to remain for longer and encourages the roots to go deep in search of water which will eventually result in a stonger lawn requiring less watering.

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.
