Horticultural aide mem­oire No. 5: Keep off the grass

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

A lawn is a pre­cious thing, use­ful and beau­ti­ful, but it doesn’t main­tain it­self. At this time of year, it needs lit­tle at­ten­tion, but in frosty weather, it’s vul­ner­a­ble to damage when it’s walked on. You will have seen that when the pa­per boy or other mis­cre­ant (surely not your­self) walks across frosted grass—the foot­prints re­main as black marks for weeks after­wards. There­fore, rise early to ad­dress the er­rant youth, wheel your bar­row over paths and in­deed bare frosted soil and rel­ish the beauty of the white lawn in your gar­den, as pris­tine as snow with­out foot­prints.
