Now is a good time of year to carry out some lawn repairs. It’s fine to do this work in the winter too, but I start thinking about non-essential tasks like this as soon as plant and grass growth has slowed a bit. We can also touch on other common lawn issues and the essentials of keeping a lawn that doesn’t deteriorate over the years, without going to excessive expense.

Pruning, especially tree pruning, is something that fills many gardeners with dread, but it need not. There is no doubt that as you prune more trees you will become better at it, but you're unlikely to kill any while you're honing your skills, and generally the worst you will do is give yourself an ugly tree for a while. So be brave!
