It’s finally that time of year when your garden comes to life. It is very important that you take care of all the corners of your garden. It may be easy to neglect problem areas as you are unsure how to resolve the problem. One of the most common issues you may have within your garden is the erosion of specific parts of grass beds. There are many reasons for your garden to become eroded but this issue can be easily resolved. 


Simply by purchasing some high-quality topsoil and placing it on the eroded sections of the grass bed, you are supplying the surrounding soil with sufficient nutrients to recover. Once you have applied the top soil to the eroded area you can then plant new grass seed to help promote the growth of new grass. It’s that simple to help that eroded area of your garden to recover.


2) Kickstart Your own stunning allotment
