Routine raking together with the use of a grass box
will keep thatch in check in most cases and in moderation acts like a mulch, keeping the surface moist and protecting the lawn surface from wear.

, was stolen from a garden.
You can cut them from the main plant when they have rooted well Continue cutting back rock plants such as alyssum, aubrieta and helianthemum immediately after flowering, before they have had time to set seed During dry weather raise the cutting blades on your lawnmower and mow without using the grass box
so that the clippings help retain moisture Thin established seedlings of herbs such as chervil and dill to 15-30cm (6-12in) apart, according to the eventual spread of the plants.
It's supposed to be a top-of-therange, time-saving device and comes with a grass box
Testers rated each mower on its ability to cope with different types of grass, how it managed lawn edges up to a soil border and the capacity of the grass box

is full, and you have to push them in a straight line to collect the clippings.

If the area is too big to rake, collect the autumn leaves in your lawn mower with the blades set high, then they will be shredded straight into the grass box
In such weather, take the grass box
off your mower so the grass clippings can help to retain moisture in the lawn.
Personally, I'm pleased to see the back of the grass box
