Cutting Grass

Time to cut the grass for the first time this year. With hardly any grass now at the back (for now) it’s just the grass at the front and side to cut. These areas have more moss, dandelions and other weeds than grass, so I gave the grass a ‘close shave’. Still a good inch or two of thatch though… at some point we’ll need to start scarifying. A thorough scarification would probably leave us with very little grass, so that’s a project for some time in the future.

Update – I’ve since learned that the best thing for a moss infested lawn is not to cut the grass too short so the grass gets a chance to compete with the moss. We’ll also fertilize and add moss killer in coming weeks, so hopefully the grass will be a little healthier by year end.
