This year, I decided not to oversow my hybrid couch lawns with a winter active seed mix for winter colour because of the spring growth spurt and the difficulty of removing the rye grass with out damaging the couch as it comes out of dormancy.. So I used a pre-emergent known as Stomp (Pendimethalin) which is a yellow colour and stains like buggery and mixed in a blue dye and wetting agent... Sprayed it on to my lawn and what a result.... A green lawn!!!!! Will see how long it will last... Excellent

My couch is all yellowed-off, at least you can see where it's growing and colonising I guess. Lawns are looking very thin and short, the animals are eating every blade. I threw some perennial rye around in late summer/autumn, but not sure if it did anything (no clue what it looks like!).

Something lost due to carelessness or if you are not using an appropriate products, techniques etc. So, If you would like to keep your garden green and healthy then it must be maintained well any how at any condition. For that don't hesitate to buy good garden lawn turf and pay more for good service.

Here, I would like to introduce you about - The secret of growing perfect lawn? It's a useful post and helpful guide to the gardener.
