Where Lawns are Concerned.

Where lawns are concerned, they are just a group of similar plants growing closely together.

All lawns begin life in the same way, hopefully being sown in cultivated and well prepared soil.

Once seed starts to germinate, you get a better sense of the individual nature of each plant.

And after a fairly brief time, as each plant develops, thickens and merges into its neighbour, that sense of individuality is lost.

However, if you remember to think of it in that way, it may help to prevent you from doing some of the harmful things that are done to lawns through lack of thought.

Like not walking on a waterlogged lawn which compacts the wet soil further and makes matters worse.

Or allowing weeds to establish and spread, thus out-competing the grasses.
