‘Afternoon Tea Week’ takes place between the 7th and 13th of August this year, and the STIGA team love nothing more than to sit down with a nice brew and a cream tea. And yes we do put the cream on first, our UK HQ is in Devon after all!
So when the sun starts to shine again, we can start thinking about laying out our best china in the garden, in preparation of a table laden FULL of tasty goodies. But how prepared is your lawn?
Be kind to your lawn, before and after!
Mowing frequency is important for lawn health. The ideal frequency is determined based on the growth speed of the individual lawn and the desired height of the lawn. As STIGA expert Fabio Banin explains, “The basic rule is that one should never trim more than 1/3 of the length of the grass blade.” And it goes without saying ALWAYS ensure your blade is sharp for a clean cut.
If your lawn has had a table laid up for an afternoon tea, or even a marquee for a summer party, this will still have taken its toll. The Lawn Association state that “The best thing is first to take any furniture off the lawn, and let the grass breathe again. You should resist leaving debris on a lawn as much as possible, this will help prevent disease and other problems from taking hold.“Get your lawn ship shape and make it ‘Swift’!
