There’s one thing that can really spoil a nice lawn – ragged and untidy lawn edges.

After mowing the grass and making your lawn look neat, tidy and beautiful, make sure your lawn edges look crisp and neat by tidying them up, so yours is a lawn to be proud of.

SL Landscape are chelmsford lawn border maintenance specialists, Where grass continually grows into the border or where the lawn edges constantly look untidy and so make mowing difficult, you may want to consider installing a permanent physical lawn edge.

These are available from good garden centres and DIY stores and can be made from corrugated iron or, better still, steel or plastic. These are driven into the soil along the side of the lawn and make a permanent edge that you can easily mow over.

Or, of course, you could install a brick edging, but this is more expensive and needs more time, effort and some bricklaying skills.

Broken edges not only make the lawn and garden look untidy, but they also make mowing and edging far more difficult. To improve the look of your lawn and to make mowing easier, you should make some quick and easy repairs.

Use a sharp spade or half-moon lawn edging tool to cut out a square section of turf that contains the broken edge. Undercut the turf to remove it, and turn it around through 180°, so that the broken edge is now within the lawn and one of the straight edges aligns with the lawn edge. Fill in the broken area with sieved garden soil or potting compost, level and re-seed with fresh grass seed.

Make sure you keep the grass seed well watered during dry periods and within no time at all you’ll have a perfect looking lawn with the crispest edges around.
