Lawn Calendar

This is the Global Gardening Lawn Calendar.

Every month, I will post a short blog about how to manage your lawn at that time of year.

The idea is to help you think about how much time and money your lawn takes to look after.

36% of gardeners report that their lawns grow all year and 44% say they mow their lawns a month earlier in spring.Is it time to evaluate the role of the lawn in the traditional english garden?


Here are two ideas to think about in MAY:


By now you wil probably be mowing the lawn once a week as it starts to grow very quickly as the days get longer and warmer.Remember to leave a height of at least  one inch or more and vary the direction of the cut to help the lawn grow evenly.


Your lawn should not need watering at this time of year as the ground should be relatively damp underneath. Remember that over watering can be more harmful than drought – try to only use rain-water from your water butt to be more environmentally friendly.

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.
