I’m a garden pro – how to get the greenest lawn for June using 3 easy tricks
JUNE has finally arrived, which means it's officially time to start enjoying your garden.
But the warmer weather also means that it may be more difficult to keep your lawn in tip-top shape.
Luckily, it's not too tricky to maintain a lush lawn thanks to one gardening expert's tips.
Homebase's garden buying manager, Tristan Sissons, has revealed to Express the three easy things you need to do to keep your lawn nice and green for the summer.
TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR GARDEN TOOLS
June is a great time to make sure your gardening tools are ready to go.
That means if you can't remember the last time you replaced your lawn mower blade, then it's probably time to get a replacement.

Sissons said: “This quick and useful job will make cutting your grass much smoother, as well as giving you a beautiful, bright green lawn.”
GO WITH NATURE'S FLOW
While it may be tempting to douse your lawn in water during a heat wave, Sissons said sometimes it's best to go with the flow with nature.
He explained: “Grass works to cool your good bacteria-filled soil and prevent the sun from damaging it.
“To save water, put some of your lawn clippings back onto your lawn and you’ll have yourself a nature fuelled watering solution!”

BE CAREFUL WITH WATERING
If you're going away on holiday there's no need to stress about watering your lawn.
Sissons ensured: “Don’t worry too much about watering a lawn if you’re only away for one or two weeks – it will survive however dry it gets!"
The lawn expert also warned against waterlogging your lawn before you leave and said: “It won’t do it any good in the long term.”
As the last piece of advice, Sissons said to start regularly mowing your lawn in June as warm weather and more moisture make it the best condition for grass growth.
