How to get the best looking garden in the street

Posted on April 28, 2007. Filed under: Advice, gardening, Home |

It’s beginning to look a lot like spring/summer in my neck of the woods, with the dulcet tones of lawnmowers filling the air. British DIY store Godfrey’s has a few tips that practically guarantee jealous fits from your neighbors, such as:

  • Cut it regularly, ideally once a week.
  • Water occasionally – watch your moisture levels.
  • Check out the lawn food, but apply sparingly.

I know from experience that many fertilizers and other lawn supplements can do more harm than good, and wil actually “burn” your grass, so use with caution.

What I find makes the best lawn food is seaweed tea. You just take seaweed (not the kind that is toasted with sesame oil or added salt or anything, just plain seaweed, any kind) and soak it for a couple of days in water. Then you whirl it in a blender, strain it, and put it into your favorite dispersal unit. My front yard is pretty small, so I just use a watering can. 🙂
