Gardening Jobs for May

Mowing the lawn is now in full swing and ensuring that after cut treatment is done is essential. Treat moss patches – remembering to apply a sprinkling of topsoil and grass seed – to make sure that your lawn stays green all summer long. Plant out your bedding and keep on top of the borders which will have sprung to life.
