parking on lawn

due to restricted space., i am forced to park on my lawn which is compacting the ground and killing the lawn. some years ago I saw some plastic trays that you laid on the ground ,filled with loam and lawn, these stopped the dirt from compacting ,allowing the lawn to grow.Is it possible to buy these or is there another solution to my problem?

Answer: Hi Brian,

Thank you for contacting us.

You are right! They are called reinforced grass paths or grass mesh, please check the link below for more information.

However, over a period of time, since you would continually be parking on the lawn the soil will get compacted. We would suggest you aerate the soil from time to time with a pitch fork. For healthy lawns you would need to water the lawn from time to time and we recommend using Dynamic Lifter Organic Lawn Food about four times a year.

Hope this information is useful. If you do have further queries please do contact us.

Kind Regards,

Yates Horticulturist.
