New lawn

I'm a complete novice to garden - set a new lawn six weeks ago - it's a small bit patchy - with a few weeds - when is the right time to start cutting - and could you recommend anything to kill off weeds. James martin, Ennis, Co Clare Posted: 21/05/2017

When the grass is 7 or 8 cm tall, you can give it a light trim with the blades set high. Gradually reduce the height of cut as the grass thickens up.

The weeds there now are weeds of cultivated ground, not lawn weeds, and regular mowing will soon wear them out.
