Nowhere else in the world does something so simple give so much pleasure. However, if you're one of the many hundreds of people who struggle to maintain your piece of lawn in tip-top condition, you may not agree!
Yes, when it looks good there's nothing to touch a lawn - the lush carpet of the formal gardens, the immaculate stripes of the croquet lawn, the billiard table finish of the putting green.
But these are the exceptions, each meticulously tended by the country's finest turf professionals.
What about real-life, everyday lawns - our lawns, the type that must withstand children and pets, droughts and floods, moles and squirrels?
How can they give us the same pleasure when they're so hard to maintain? Is it any surprise that many recieve only the very basic attention?

As the Chairman of The Lawn Association, David's mission is to:

Why does the UK need a Lawn Association?
The Lawn Association is the essential link between three interdependent groups – 1) gardening enthusiasts, 2) lawn professionals, landscapers and garden designers, and 3) horticultural media. The more access these groups have to reliable and correct information, the better for our lawns.
And the Lawn Association is the ONLY voice working proactively to preserve lawns as essential environmental contributors, by promoting accurate and authoritative information and encouraging innovative R&D.
