Taking care of your lawn is an art form – not enough water and your lawn will become dull. When it comes to looking after your lawn, timing can be everything.

Our friends over at Heiton Buckley, the builders’ merchants, have compiled the ultimate cheat sheet for anyone looking at keeping their lawn in pristine condition, with a year-round calendar which tells you when the recommended timing is for completing certain jobs – such as mowing and raking.

Right now, the winter season tends to normally be a quiet time for the lawn but that means it’s also the perfect time to think and plan out what you want from your lawn in the next year. It’s also a great time to get your mower serviced and fixed if need be, beating out the spring rush.

Lawns are living things, so by giving them the time and attention they rightly deserve you can keep them looking their very best. Take a look at the infographic below to figure out what you need to do to keep your lawn in its ultimate condition.
