A well maintained lawn provides so many benefits such as heat reduction in homes, play and relaxation areas for families, and adding beauty to our homes and cities. Lawns are vitally important to all of us, however, as Australian lawn owners continue to face new challenges with water, drought and pollution, we are all being forced to improve our lawn care practices and move to environmentally friendly methods of maintaining the grass on our properties to a higher standard, while continuing to face the challenge of keeping our lawn green. The Lawn Guide is dedicated to sharing simple lawn care tips with everyone interested in creating and maintaining a beautiful lawn and garden.
