Top gardening jobs for September and October:
Moving into autumn lawns will need regular clearing of leaves, this can simply be done by mowing them up – at least fortnightly to avoid yellowing of the lawn where leaves have lay. Keep mower blades sharp to avoid tearing the grass blades, as well as reducing work load on your mower.
Lawn edges should be trimmed and re shaped as required so as to maintain definition between it and the paths / borders.
Lawns can now be scarified, aerated and top dressed. For further details of these specialist services contact us today for recommendations of what your lawns needs.
Trees, shrubs and climbers
Your Roses may be putting on one final bloom, once this has finished cut them back a little – but not all the way just yet, save that for February.
Flower beds (and veg plots) will need regular hoeing over and where appropriate weed killer to keep on top of weed seedlings. You may want to add a splash of colour to your borders with some autumn – winter bedding plants – or get some hanging baskets made up for around the garden and entrance to your home.
