Have a Lawn?
A lawn is the canvas on which you can draw the garden you dream of. In
winter it will provide colour and life when other plants are scarce. In
summer it will pull together and frame all the features and colours in your garden.
A lawn is also extremely useful! It's great for walking on, ideal for playing games on and
lovely for just sitting on. It's soft, good looking and provides a
forgiving surface when kids and adults trip over.
Modern grasses are very forgiving of neglect and severe
weather. With very little lawn care and maintenance, they can be improved greatly. Let GardenAction
show you how to make the most of the lawn in your garden.
