Advice on caring for new lawn
Hi folks. I recently took the decision to completely replace my existing lawn, which was in a very bad condition. A heavy clay soil had caused the surface to severely crack, and the drainage was extremely poor.
So I had the top layer of soil excavated, and put in a drainage system. I needed 40 tons of replacement topsoil over this. I've now put down some new turf, and I must say the garden has never looked better. Mowing will now be a pleasure.
But I want to keep it this way. I've read about aeration of the lawn to allow air to get down to the roots, and help drainage. How often would you recommend doing this? Can you suggest any other important things I should be doing to help the lawn stay in good condition?
If I only manage to do one thing right in the garden, it must be to keep the lawn healthy and looking nice.
Thanks for any tips.
