The beginning of the end of the summer is upon us, but the rain of the past 10 days has begun to bring the dry lawns back to life.
Its ben a long hot dry summer for the lawns in Surrey, and for those of you that either couldn’t or wouldn’t water the lawns, the rain of late will have come as a blessing. Coinciding with our late summer feed (step 4 in our 5 step perfect lawn plan) the lawns have bounced back with vigour. Out cutting grass in the heat this afternoon, I was delighted to be filling the grass bag once more with lush green grass clippings, rather than the brown grass and dust that we have had to get used to over the past 6 weeks. Time to start reducing the mower hight down a notch, as the grass will be able to endure more stress now that it can replace its energy much quicker and easier.
This said, some lawns are still very dry, and the inevitable thatch has set it. This will mean a busy spring for us, scarifying it all out. But the results are always worth the hard work.
I am happy to announce that we have bought a 1.5 ton mini digger so that we can more easily level lawns and also offer clearing to gardens of all sizes (where access allows) so keep your eyes out for the bright green digger in a garden near you. Not to mention the addition of a brand new Pressure surface cleaner, so now we can clean your patios and drive ways in and around surrey, all as part of your annual care package.
We all hope you are still enjoying the garden as much as we are, and lets hope that summer holds on as long as possible.
