Look after your lawn
The centrepiece of every well-kept garden, an emerald green lawn sets off your plants to perfection and gives you a beautiful, soft space to sit and soak up the atmosphere.
Keeping your lawn in tip-top condition is easy when you've got the right tools, and luckily we've got just what you need right here in our garden centre. Here are a few essentials to get you started:
Lawnmower: the number one requirement for trim lawns, choose a mower to fit your garden. Push mowers are practical and environmentally friendly for tiny lawns: electric or petrol make short work of anything larger. (Thompsons do not stock electric or petrol lawnmowers).
Half-moon edger: straightforward and comfortable to use, the half-moon blade slices those hairy, overgrown edges into a crisp, pleasing finish
Wire rake: rake up autumn leaves to make leafmould, then give your lawn (and yourself!) a workout by scarifying – raking out the old thatch to let the grass breathe
Garden fork: perfect for aerating lawns, punching drainage holes through the surface to let water flow away from the surface and down to the roots where it's needed.
Please ask the staff in our Chislehurst, Newchurch, Canterbury and Welling garden centre for more information about which tools to choose and how to use them.
