Even if the cold and frost have arrived, the gardeners cannot rest. Things can be done in the garden all year round, even in the cooler months. Regardless of where you live, plants will need care to start spring off on the ‘right footing’. But what things can be done in the garden during winter?…
A beautiful lawn is one of the main attractions in each garden and also each owner’s pride. If you decided to give that extra bit of attention to your green carpet so it looks perfect, we are, again, here to help you.

You also have to use a herbicide and fertilizers. After another couple of weeks, you can start planting your seeds, depending on the soil particularities. You will need about 30-40 grams of seeds for each square foot, which need to be evenly spread on the soil you have worked on. The next steps are again raking, to incorporate the seeds, and watering. To ensure that the seeds remain in the right position, you can add about 2 inches of sand on top of the sown area.
Watering your lawn regularly is absolutely mandatory. If you are not sure how to do it or how often, please read this article and this one.

Remember! Mowing the grass is not just for a neat look, it also helps strengthen the roots and the creation of new shoots. Please refer to the articles we linked above for more information about mowing.
