Lawn care

The two circles of grass have been provided with some TLC, they are plants themselves after all.  We have bought some clip-on shoe spikes which, when walked all over the grass will improve aeration, aid drainage, reduce dampness and therefore reduce the ideal growing conditions for moss.  

The powder product contains a few active ingredients, nitrogen added to the soil is needed for healthy green plant production, phosphorus is a fertiliser that in a field grass would normally get from grazing cattle (digestion) and strengthens the root system and finally potassium helps against infection.  

The liquid product does all of the above but also greens the grass and can be applied during wet weather.
