Anyone up to much with the lawn this time of the year. Apart from a little bit of snow it’s been +5/6 degrees

Update: the "seeded" area still looks very patchy and there's a moggy who's been digging it up. I'll have to flatten and reseed but probably won't bother till March now.

Other than that, I've just kept the leaves off. I was tempted to give it a mow but gave up when it started raining.

"I'll have to flatten" - yep, that fixes Moggies every time.....

I'd forget cutting it atm, just remember when you DO start, raise the cut height on your mower.

There are a couple of moggies at least owned by neighbours. I discovered they liked to use my raised beds as a litter tray. I've surrounded one of the beds with bamboo cane to keep them out. The other one's covered up with ground fabric until I use it later this year.

As for cutting the lawn, I raised the mowing height for the last few cuts before winter, so should be at the same height when I restart in spring.
