need advice on my laen, but the drainage advice and Greenthumb recommendations on the other threads don't help.
My lawn is very patchy - dead bits, moss, weeds. new grass is growing though and I have about 3 weeks left of spring to get it as nice as poss (really dry in summer, so it'll probably die, but I thought if i can get it nice-ish I'll feel more inclined to water it).
The thing is I am eveangelical about herbicides/fertilizers etc. Is there a non-chemical thing i can do to help it? Can I dress it with organic compost, for example (which will presumably help hold in moisture come summer)?
Also DIY Q (new house!) - do you think I can glue one of those steel kitchen organiser thingies to a tiled wall with silicon or something? If so can i then remove it? (rented house: don't want to dril holes in the tiles)
they glue mirrors and stuff all the time on changing rooms. Course they don't show you the bit where it falls down afterwards. I was thinking of "no more nails" type stuff. Which presumably has its own removal thingy (no more no more nails) or something.
but drat - dh wasn't convinced about my glue/kitchen organiser idea (which is for the kitchen, not the garden - just thought the topics were kinda related). I'll have to ask the landlady if we can put holes in the tiles. sigh. must remember to count the "out of reach" cupboards before we move next time.
